Sugar 7.6 was officially released today for general availability. Though W-Systems has already completed several deployments on Sugar 7, each new release allows more of our customers to make the upgrade from Sugar 6 to 7. Our engineers couldn’t wait to test out Sugar 7.6 at SugarCon. At the UX Lab, attendees were able to test the usability of the new release as well as get a sneak peek at innovative features to be included in Sugar 7.7. Outside of the UX Lab, our engineers attended UnCon, the developer portion of the conference. There they learned from Sugar’s core development team and discussed methods for developing within the Sugar 7 framework. Some of the feature enhancements in the Sugar 7.6 release include:
Additional features in the Enterprise edition of 7.6 include:
We recommend that each customer perform a Healthcheck before they upgrade. During a Healthcheck, an engineer reviews your system to determine how the upgrade will affect your Sugar system and any customizations it contains. In the end, we will provide a complete upgrade plan with recommendations. If you upgrade to 7.6 without a Healthcheck, getting broken elements fixed can be more expensive than identifying them ahead of time. For more information on version 7.6 read the full release notes here. If you are still on Sugar 6, it’s time to start thinking about getting upgraded. Contact us here if you’re ready.
D&B and SugarCRM’s business relationship was discontinued in late 2016.
