The Bricolage development team is pleased to announce the release of Bricolage 1.8.5. This maintenance release addresses a number of issues in Bricolage 1.8.3 and adds a number of improvements (there was no announcement for the short-lived 1.8.4 release). The SOAP server in particular sees improvements in this release, with improved character set support; better support for related stories and media using URIs in addition to IDs; and as support for top-level element relations. Issues with the ordering of story elements have also been corrected, as well as errors when attempting to revert a story or media document or template. Here are the other highlights of this release:
published_versionattribute is not specified and the document to be published has never been published before. [David]
$burner->publish_anotherin a template. [David]
bric_queuedscript now requires a username and password and will authenticate the user. This user will then be used for logging events. All events logged when a job is run via the UI are now also logged by
bric_queued. [Mark and David]
has_keyword()method in the Business class (from which the story and media classes inherit) now works. Thanks to Clare Parkinson for the spot! [David]
