Last week at Enonic - 2019, week 9

Last Week

Last week SSB (Statistics Norway, a government agency) launched their website about Norwegian statistics running on XP.


Enonic XP 7 is now in feature freeze! This means a first beta is released on our artifactory. With 7 we’ve focused heavily on the developers point of view, and one of the biggest new features will be the CLI. It will be possible to install it with brew - brew install enonic - from the terminal. After that you can spin up new project by just typing enonic project create and build it with enonic project build. Long gone will the days of having to manually structure your folders, set $XP_HOME variables, and keeping a hoard of different XP versions installed manually.

With the release of XP 7 we’ll also finally see the dawn of our new developer portal, the entry point for all our future documentation. Of course this portal is built on Enonic XP and uses our blazingly fast built-in search.

Other big changes with XP 7 is that we’ve heavily optimized the storage engine to take up less space on servers running XP. You could see up to a 50% disc optimasation depending on your installation. Basically we’ve made XP smarter when it comes to meta-data and version-data. We’ve also introduced a way for XP to know if version data is only draft data or actually published data (commited data), this will in future XP versions let us garbage collect unused versions further optimising disc space.

Last week we signed with frontend developer Sandra to join our team of Enonic Specialist during this spring. Our team of Enonic Specialist are now ready to help more customers and partners with making the best use of Enonic XP.
