ExpressionEngine® User Guide

Developer Preview Program

Purpose

The ExpressionEngine Developer Preview Program provides early access to feature releases for the purpose of allowing developers of public add-ons to ensure that their add-ons are compatible with new versions of ExpressionEngine. The primary goals of the program are to:

  • Ensure that public third-party add-ons are ready to go on the same day that EllisLab releases a new version of ExpressionEngine
  • Work with third-party developers to continually improve the ExpressionEngine API and third-party software compatibility

Benefits

Members of the ExpressionEngine Developer Preview Program receive the following benefits:

  • Early access to pre-release versions of ExpressionEngine (typically 3-4 weeks ahead of a public release)
  • Includes the pre-release builds for ExpressionEngine, Multiple Site Manager, Discussion Forums, the User Guide and ExpressionEngine Core
  • Email notifications of new pre-release builds
  • Build notes to help point out changes that are most likely to impact third-party add-ons
  • Access to the ExpressionEngine Developer forums to interact with the entire EllisLab Team as well as other developers in the program. This includes alerting the EllisLab team to potential show-stopping issues affecting their add-ons, and working with EllisLab Engineers on solutions to those issues prior to a release.

How to Join

In order to join the program you must have a publicly-available add-on and have at least one ExpressionEngine 2 license in your account. If you are interested in joining the Developer Preview Program, please send an email to team@ellislab.com and include your EllisLab.com username and a link to your publicly-available add-ons in your request.

My Add-ons are Bespoke, Can I Join?

The Developer Preview Program is only available to developers with public add-ons and an ExpressionEngine license in order to maximize the effectiveness of the engineering resources devoted to the program at this time.

Security Researchers and Reporters

We’re always happy to work with security researchers and reporters and if you’ve reported at least one valid security issue, we want you to be part of the developer preview. If you’ve submitted an issue in the past and aren’t part of the program, just email us at team@ellislab.com.
