BlueFoot extension now available for Magento Enterprise merchants
The current BlueFoot CMS v1.0 extension can now be downloaded from Magento, available exclusively for licensed Magento Enterprise Edition or Enterprise Cloud Edition merchants. As a reminder, Magento purchased the BlueFoot technology to give merchants a powerful set of tools to simplify the creation and management of content on Magento without the need for technical skills.
Below are some very important considerations before using the BlueFoot v1.0 extension:
• BlueFoot v1.0 is only compatible with Magento 2.1 Enterprise Edition and Enterprise Cloud Edition, and it will be compatible with Magento 2.2 when it is released. It is not compatible with Magento 1.
• BlueFoot capabilities will be integrated into the native code for Magento 2.3, currently scheduled for the second half of 2017.
• Magento does not guarantee a migration path from BlueFoot v1.0 to native Magento 2.3. BlueFoot uses a product field data methodology that is incompatible with the methodology that will be used in Magento 2.3. Merchants choosing to adopt BlueFoot v1.0 must take precautions to avoid data loss and are responsible for recovering any data lost during future migrations.
• Magento will sunset support for all standalone BlueFoot extensions within 90 days of the release of Magento 2.3.
Developer documentation and installation instructions, as well as FAQs on the BlueFoot acquisition, can be found in the Partner Portal in the following directory: Downloads > Magento Enterprise Edition 2.X > Magento Bundled Extensions > Bluefoot. The BlueFoot website also has additional support and developer information.
