Statamic 5 is released!

The Statamic team released Statamic 5 this week. This major release focuses on performance improvements, developer experience, and continued modernization of the code base.

The announcement post goes into greater detail about performance, but for large, complicated sites, you might see anywhere from 50-600% speed increases. Small sites might notice a bump of 5-10% faster.

With Statamic 5, the control panel has multi-site management, where non-technical (and technical alike) users can add, edit, and remove sites:

When using the flat file Stache driver, you can now see the equivalent of what SQL queries would be with the flat file fake SQL queries panel. You can now see approximated SQL queries in tools like Laravel Debugbar, Telescope, and Ray:
