Looks like this article was written a while ago. Some of the ideas and techniques described may now be outdated. Just sayin’.

On April 4th the makers of Craft announced the release of the much anticipated Craft 3, and I'm already up-and-running building sites on the new platform.

The new release packs in a bunch of new features and improvements, including:

  • Multi-Site. Craft’s localization features are all grown up.
  • Image Editor. Crop, rotate, flip, and set focal points on your images.
  • Asset Preview. Quickly view your assets everywhere by pressing Shift + Spacebar.
  • Debug Toolbar. Learn everything there is to know about how your requests are being processed.
  • Element Queries. Fetch the exact content you need.
  • PostgreSQL. Like MySQL, but way better in every way.
  • Plugin Store. Discover, try, and buy Craft plugins right in the Control Panel.

That's just scratching the surface. For more information, read their blog post at:
