Umbraco Personalisation Groups: New Release Supporting Umbraco V8

I've published two new releases of the Umbraco Personalisation Groups package, providing personalisation features for websites built on Umbraco, supporting Umbraco 7 and 8.

They are available on Our for download or can be installed via NuGet (though it's best to go the package route for a first install, to help with setup of some necessary document and data types).

With Umbraco 8, a concept of segments and variants has been introduced, that will likely be able to be used for providing similar features. The initial release though only deals with language variants for multi-lingual sites, so, at least for now, think the package will still have some value.

Release Details

There are two new versions of the package:

  • Version 1.0 - targeting Umbraco 7
  • Version 2.0 - targeting Umbraco 8
Umbraco 7 (Personalisation Groups 1.0) Release

This provides almost the same functionality as the most recent 0.3.6 release. I have bumped the major version partly due to it being about time it was on a 1.0 number, but also to reflect the internal restructuring that's occurred to be able to support both versions with the maximum amount of code re-use (there are now two dlls).

There should be no breaking changes in functionality though.

Umbraco 8 (Personalisation Groups 2.0) Release

The release for Umbraco 8 should provide the same functionality as has been available for Umbraco 7, though obviously working with the new release of the CMS platform.

Wrapping Up

Hopefully this new version provides useful to anyone already using the package and migrating to Umbraco 8, or considering using it for a new project. If anyone does find any issues, please feel free to report on the forum or issue tracker.
