Sitefinity 8.0 will offer the ability to have different Taxonomies content (Categories, Tags, etc.) for the different sites in Multisite projects. Thus, you can set, maintain, and assign, different taxa to items depending on the sites in which you work with them.
To use this feature on a Multisite project:
From this moment on, this taxonomy will differ on this site, depending on your choice in the previous step. Please take a look at our documentation here.
Added Site Sync support for multiple sites. This will give you the ability to sync only one or a few selected sites using Site Sync. Also, you will be able to create new sites on staging severs, and, when ready to go live, sync the new sites to the production server.
To use this feature on a Multisite project with enabled Staging and Syncing module:
Implemented a simple LINQ translation and an interface to optimize the loading of users when using Custom Membership Provider. We prepared a sample that you can download from GitHub. There are more details in our community forum here.
Allows to precompile frontend and backend pages before deploying the site in production. Helps pages load faster when requested for the first time. Reduces processor load. Optimizes or skips the warm-up phase. For more information please check this documentation article
Allows developers to build mobile-ready sites using their favorite frameworks and includes MVC stock widgets, an AngularJS widget designer framework, Boostrap and Gumby support, and more.
*Note that Feather module needs to be installed from Settings -> Modules and Services
Dynamic content permissions
Thanks for the update Ivan.
Is the precompilation tool tied to SF v8 or can it be deployed for earlier versions?
So I upgrade my site(quatum SDK site) worked great. I was excited to read about the ability to sync individual sites(from a multisite) so I went directly to that. Once i got there i was hoping to be able to schedule different times for different sites ... apparently that's not the case :(
Any chance that feature is possible?
Also when you have two server configured you can't switch between them for syncing ..

Thank you for the feedback!
Although we understand that being able to schedule Site Sync per site would be convenient it won't be done for the current release.
The second problem will be fixed for the official release.
i've upgraded one of our sites to Version 8.0 Beta 1.
The Update works fine on my site.
Now I've tried out the "Pages Precompilation tool".
In difference with the version is my 7.1 site faster than the 8.0 Beta 1 site.
The warm up phase is very long (~2-3 min).
The tool generates a valid dll in my bin folder on the webspace!
thank you for your reply.
In my Stitefinity i only use normal webforms usercontrols and the default sitefinity controls.
How long is the warm up phase of the site with the 7.1 version ?
You should experience significant improvement on the front-end with precompiled pages.
The tool does not precompile custom user controls. If you have many of those, they might be causing the delay.
Thank you Steve,
I'll keep my two environments split.
Kudos on creating new sites in destination environment!
Here's a video of it if it helps: www.youtube.com/watch
Hello, just documenting a crazy idea I had...
Can I read the "Site Sync per Site in Multisite Projects" as another way of saying: "I can get away with syncing sites A, B, and C from Server 1 to Server 2, and sites D, E, and F from Server 2 to Server 1."
or will Sitefinity v8 just laugh at me ???
In short the new Site Sync features that comes with Sitefinity 8.0 allow you to create a site during sync and to be able to filter content per site when you perform a sync.
The two way sync won't be supported.
For more information on what's new in Site Sync you could check the video which has been posted by Steve (thank you Steve).
All the best,
