Since our last entry, we’ve released Enonic XP 6.11! It has some very exciting features, like a multi-lingual admin interface, dump and load data with version history, improved detail panel, support for adding parameters on the built-in Shortcut content type, ability to disable the “Welcome tour” server side, and more!
The biggest news with 6.11 is the introduction of Publishing Issues. A very exciting feature that lets you add one or more contents to an issue that can be assigned to others. This lets your junior web editors edit text and images and then assign these as an issue to a senior editor that approves and publish them. It also lets editors request review of content managed by others, perhaps things like “Add some images to this article”, or “Simplify the text on About us page”. This new feature integrates seamlessly into your publishing workflow, and if you don’t need this feature it will not be in the way for you.
In other news, Firefox is pushing hard to use less and less memory. Especially noticeable when using a lot of tabs. Let’s Encrypt just issued its 100 millionth certificate. CSS-tricks writes about dropping third party front end form validation all together, going fully native. And finally, Adobe decides to drop the development of Flash. When 2020 ends, we can rid ourselves of Flash for good!
See you next week!
