Among the FREE features of each admin interface:
But professionals don't love Backpack just because it's feature-packed. They also love it because it's ridiculously easy to override a functionality. Generally, you just need to create a function (or blade file) with the right name. Yes, it can be that easy.
Need more complex features? Purchase Backpack PRO, our closed-source paid add-on. It will add 5 more operations, 10 filters, 28 more fields, 6 more columns and 1 more widget. For more info, see our FREE vs PRO comparison table. We believe it's everything you need to build admin panels of any complexity.

It's heavily recommended that you subscribe to the Backpack Newsletter so you can find out about any security updates, breaking changes or major features. We send an email about 1-2 emails per year. Sometimes less.
If you discover any security related issues, please email [email protected] instead of using the issue tracker. Alternatively, please disclose the issue on huntr.dev to also get a small bounty ($25-40).
Starting with v5, Backpack has become open-core. Its features have been separated into two packages:
Our documentation covers both CRUD and PRO, with all the PRO features clearly labeled PRO.
Starting with Backpack v5, all our packages follow semantic versioning. Here's what
5.0.1) means for us:
major- breaking changes, major new features, complete rewrites; released once a year, in February; it adds features that were previously impossible and upgrades our dependencies; upgrading is done by following our clear and detailed upgrade guides;
minor- new features, released in backwards-compatible ways; every few months; update takes seconds;
patch- bug fixes & small non-breaking changes; historically every week; update takes seconds;
When we release a new Backpack\CRUD version, all paid addons receive support for it the same day.
When you buy a premium Backpack addon, you get access to not only updates, but also upgrades (for 12mo), that means that... any time you buy a Backpack addon, it is very likely that you're not only buying the current version (
v5 at the moment), but also the upgrade to the next version (
v6 for example).

We've worked on admin panels so much, that we've created one of the most popular packages for Laravel - just from making public what was repetitive in our projects.
