Upgrading from Mendix version 7 to 8

Mendix version 8 brings many improvements to the platform, however, this release contains changes that cannot be upgraded automatically using the regular Studio upgrade mechanism. This means that if you want to upgrade your existing app to Mendix version 8 can only do so in Studio Pro or by involving developers familiar with Studio Pro. For more information on upgrading to Mendix version 8, see the Upgrading to Mendix version 8 section in Studio Ranges & Mendix Versions and Moving from Desktop Modeler Version 7 to Studio Pro 8.

New Features


  • To improve user experience, we added error codes to consistency errors in the Checks panel and improved Studio specific messages for a number of errors. You can navigate to the corresponding documentation (if available) by clicking the error code. Error codes will help you identify an error easily when asking about it in the Mendix Forum or when turning to Mendix Support.

  • To make the microflow editor more user-friendly, Exclusive split is now called Decision. The new name better illustrates what this element does: it makes a decision which flow a microflow should take depending on a condition.
