Suggest New Features for the Next Versions
While we are finishing version 5.0, we are already working on the road map for the next versions. We have many suggestions from our clients on the list, but we wanted to give you some additional option how to suggest new versions and let others vote for them. It will help us identify what is most important for a majority of our clients and focus on that.

. It means that web design agencies will not be allowed to use the Server License for multiple clients.
If you're a web development agency and plan to use Kentico CMS for many clients, you can still purchase the Server License now and use it for multiple clients
hosted on your server even after we release version 5.0. Customers who already own a Server License or those who purchase it before 5.0 release will still be able to use it for multiple clients with 5.0 and later versions!
