I want to thank far too many people. Plone 5.2 was released in July 2019. Work on 6.0 started not too long after this, but Covid made it impossible to get together as community, which slowed down our progress. Still, in the past three and a half years, people have been crazy enough to upgrade the backend to support Python 3.8 till 3.11 and cleanup lots of code. Others (or sometimes the same people) have been crazy enough to upgrade the Classic UI to latest standards, including Bootstrap 5, making development of custom code easier. Even crazier people have created a separate React frontend called Volto, which is so good that it is now considered the default. Then there is installation with Docker, new documentation, and a new plone.org. So very much volunteer work, plus time sponsored by clients, has gone into this, you would not believe it. Thank you all! The Plone community is great.
Happy Plone 6 release day!
