The SuiteCRM Roadmap is subject to review and was last updated on Wednesday 30th September 2020.
What’s upcoming in SuiteCRM 8?
We want to enhance the user experience and provide an interface that users love. We’ve re-designed the front-end of the application to not only make it look better but also enable users to perform actions easier and get access to key insights quicker.
SuiteCRM 8 Core
From a technology perspective, the introduction of a new Core framework will lead to the deprecation of all residual SugarCRM contributions from the codebase leaving a leaner and more maintainable application.
We will be introducing a compatibility mode that you can select by view and module that will be rendered in the new angular engine or will be referenced from SuiteCRM 7.
Standards & Extension
We are striving to make everything extendible as much as possible following our design values. We are also introducing a new test suite for Angular UI and the SuiteCRM 8 core.
In our 2nd Alpha Preview we will release and demonstrate the new List View component and user experience. More specifically in this release we will demonstrate:
New List View UI
New “Basic” Filter Design
List View Data retrievable via API
List View Charts
New Chart Engine
New Fields rendering in Angular
List View Pagination
Alpha Preview III – SuiteCRM 8 Record View
Release Plan: 15th October 2020
In our 3rd Alpha Preview we will release the new Record View Component. This combines the Edit and Detail view into one singular view:
New Angular UI for Record View
Record View Widgets
New History Timeline
Status Bar Widget
SuiteCRM 8 Beta Phase
Release Plan: Q4
We aim to provide a minimum of two beta releases in Q4. This will be the first installable package release of SuiteCRM 8. It is anticipated that this will include the features in all 3 previews as well as additional features missing from the previous releases. Including:
Non-Core Bulk Actions
New “Advanced” Filter Design
New Notifications and Favourites System
