Last week at Enonic - 2019, week 6

Last Week

Last week we held a dual set of fully booked Developer training, as well as hosted our web editor meetup. Attendees to the meetup just wouldn’t stop showing up, and we landed around 60 new and familiar faces gathering in our offices for two hours of Enonic XP deliciousness. TINE talked about how they did SEO for all their products and websites with Enonic XP, we showed the crowd XP 7.0, yours truly demonstrated the Form Builder app and the Discussion app from our Market, and Tom from Item Consulting gave us handy tips for improving accessibility across our sites.

Tomorrow we’ll throw our next PWA workshop. If you’re not working on PWA today, you will soon, this half-day workshop is the perfect start (regardless if you’ll use XP or not, even if you’ll work with an Enonic App as the basis for this workshop).

A few customers reported problems with the way sorting inside some ContentSelectors work, so we’re working hard on fixing that and will release 6.15.6 as soon as possible.

For those of you that didn’t attend the web editor meetup, I can spoil that 7.0 will now introduce widgets also in the edit-mode of Content Studio, meaning you can get even more power from your widgets. This change is already in the SNAPSHOT-version. We’ve also taken the emulator-tab out of the Inspect Panel and transformed it to a widget, making it a lot more visible and useful. The icon for opening the widget-panel (or detail panel) changes from the three dots and three lines to a cogwheel instead. Minor but welcome changes. As mentioned before, the focus for 7.0 is mostly big changes to the backend so developers will notice a lot more changes.

Psst! Know any Java-masters? Send them to our career-page.
