It’s not only a last few very freezing days up here in Norway, we’re also in the middle of feature freeze for Enonic XP 7. This means it is possible to download and run it (with some developer experience and nerd-skills). Our repository now has multiple new builds (as we’ve changed the build-system in XP7). You’ll see
enonic-xp-generic and a lot of

server. You’ll want the build for your machine and OS, and developers should go for the
sdk build (it bundles the correct JDK!), while devops and cloud engineers should go for the
server build (doesn’t bundle JDK). Be aware that Content Studio now needs to be downloaded and installed separately. If you want to try to upgrade an app for XP7 you could have a peak at our work-in-progress developer portal explaining what you need to do to upgrade your XP6-server to XP7 and what to do to upgrade your XP6 app to XP7. But be aware this is work in progress and you’ll be on volatile grounds doing this.
Last week we also passed 600 concurrent XP-servers running. With current acceleration we’ll hit 1000 before the end of the year.
