DD4T recently released version 2.5 which supports all of the latest Sites 9 features - which is great. However, we're running DD4T 2.1 (Java) with Web 8.5 CM / CD, and because DD4T 2.5 for Sites 9 is not yet supported on the Java version we're hoping to be able to run DD4T 2.1 on Sites 9 CM but leave our CD on 8.5 for now.
Can we run DD4T 2.1, or any of the other versions below DD4T 2.5 on Sites 9 if we don't intend to leverage some of the new features, like regions, until the Java DD4T version catches up?
To be clear, here's what we're proposing:
- Sites 9.0 CM
- Web 8.5 CD
- DD4T 2.1 (TBBs & CD)
I'm assuming this will work because AFAIK we can still run the older TBBs compiled against the 8.5 / 2013 DLLs, but I just wanted to check if there was anything we were overlooking. Thanks in advance!
