Sitecore Experience Platform 9.3 available for download!

You can now download Sitecore 9.3 from dev.sitecore.net! Also now available is the installation module for the new Horizon editing interface.

My personal top 5 highlights of the release:

  1. Big performance improvements to xConnect, especially with regards to session-end tracking batches.
  2. Horizon - I'm not going to use it much in my day-to-day, but this is a huge step forward for our editing interface for the marketing professional
  3. No-captcha - The new addition to Sitecore Forms that let's you bot-detect using the platform bot-detection code instead of a Captcha field is pretty awesome. People don't like captcha, marketers don't like bots, this is a win-win!
  4. xDB split/merge of shards - redistribute data across a new number of shards, so necessary for ongoing management of data
  5. SIA wizard install of Solr - Thanks to Jeremy Davis' script Solr installation was a breeze, but having it in the wizard removes another prerequisite before install!

 

I was going to write an extensive blog post about ALL the new features and releases, but why not check out the details from these fine folk:
