I hadn't planned on upgrading any of my personal Orchard Websites until Orchard 1.6. However, after upgrading several client websites to Orchard CMS 1.5.1 I figured there is value to being on the latest version to make subsequent Orchard CMS upgrades easier. Therefore, in addition to upgrading DavidHayden.com to Orchard CMS 1.5.1, I also upgraded this Orchard Website to 1.5.1 late last night as well.
I don't plan on utilizing any of the new features in Orchard 1.5.1 for this website quite yet, but for those new to Orchard 1.5 I have been blogging a bit about the new features. I have really just scratched the surface, but there will be more Orchard CMS Tutorials to come. Recent tutorials and blog posts related to Orchard 1.5 include:
I've had a lot of requests for Orchard CMS Training. Yes, I do offer Orchard Training Classes, but I have taken a break from teaching during the summer. I plan to start back up again in October. I have been upgrading my training material with all the new features in Orchard 1.5.1 and will do so for Orchard 1.6, etc. when it comes out. I am on the bleeding edge of Orchard CMS so those taking my training classes are to ( that is where all the fun is ).
Primarily I have been training larger web development firms, but in October I plan to open classes up to the public. I'll talk more about this in October.
Enjoy Orchard CMS 1.5.1. It has some really nice features!
