ExpressionEngine 2.0 and add-ons

Friday, August 7th, 2009

With ExpressionEngine version 2.0 now in beta the aim of this post is to set out the upgrade process for this site’s add-ons.

EllisLab have made no secret that the architectural changes in EE2.0 have made the upgrade a time-consuming task, and the same will be true for 3rd party add-ons.

I’ve been fortunate enough to have been given access to the developer preview and the current beta release of the next version of ExpressionEngine, so progress towards converting my add-ons has already started.

Of the add-ons available from this site, I intend to upgrade the following:

  • Client Download
  • Followers
  • FeedGrab
  • CSVGrab
  • XMLGrab
  • Selected Items
  • PurgeData

and I also hope to have 1 or 2 new add-ons ready to release by that time.

The upgrades to my commercial add-ons (currently Client Downloads and Followers) will be made available free of charge to those who have purchased the current version.

Please contact me if you have any questions.
