I'm thrilled to announce the release of Bricolage-Devel 1.7.3, the fourth development release for what will soon become Bricolage 1.8.0. This version of the open-source content management system addresses all of the bugs discovered since the release of the third development release, 1.7.2, and adds several new features and numerous improvements. The most significant changes since 1.7.2 include:
.deployto their names. The original behavior of always deploying templates upon upload can be restored by enabling the
FTP_DEPLOY_ON_UPLOADbricolage.conf directive. [David]
ANYfunction to be used with select parameters to story, media, and template (formatting) list. Pass a list of values to this function to have any of of them match for a given parameter. This is especially useful for matching on, say, a list of URIs or category IDs. This function is automatically available in templates. [David]
USE_THUMBNAILSbricolage.conf directive. See Bric::Biz::Asset::Business::Media::Image for more information. [Paul Orrock/ Digital Craftsmen]
Limitparameters to the
list()methods of the story, media, and template (formatting) classes are now handled by the database back end, instead of in Perl space. This makes using these parameters much more efficient.
get_element()method to Bric::Biz::Asset::Business and deprecated the
get_tile()method. This will make things a bit more consistent for template developers, at least. [David]
primary_category_idparameter to the story class'
simpleparameter to the Media class'
list()method works again. As a result, so does "Find Stories" in the UI. [David]
make cloneworks again. [David]
bric_soap story create/updatecaused by refactoring in version 1.7.0. Found by David during a demo. [Scott]
<%preview>, and <%chk_syntax> tags now work as advertised. Reported by Ben Bangert. [David]
