Special announcement today, we have begun the planning phase for Strapi v5 and have decided not to repeat the mistakes of our past in Strapi v4.
We are planning to hold a monthly Strapi v5 Community Committee meeting where we will pick 10 different community members each month to participate. These meetings will be recorded and shared publicly to the rest of the community as well for transparency (one of our core company values).
Ideally what we are looking for is a vastly diverse group of community members from all walks of the ecosystem: Developers, Plugin Maintainers, Content managers/creators, or just regular users. The idea is for us to share some of what we are working on, our thoughts, and any RFCs/Alphas/Betas/Designs/ect.
Likewise we want to hear your voices; be that comments, concerns, topics, questions, etc. So today we will open up general registration for all those interested in participating. You can use the following Typeform to sign up and answer some questions: Strapi v5 Committee Signup
Towards the end of April we will begin reaching out to the members selected for the May meeting (1st one) and begin trying to find a time slot that fits with everyone’s schedules. Additionally we will keep this registration form open throughout the entire v5 development cycle and towards the end of each month we will select 10 new community members for the following month’s meeting. Our hope is that we get enough registrations not to repeat the same user in multiple months but it is certainly possible.
After the first meeting we will open up a video archive channel and general v5 discussion channel for those that may not be interested in participating in the meeting but still wish to voice their comments, questions, and concerns.
We sincerely look forward to engaging more with our users and are very excited to hear what you wish to share & say.
The Strapi Team
