[ANN] Release of Typo 5.2.98


#1

Hi list,

I’ve released tonight Typo 5.2.98, which is the first release
candidate for Typo 5.3. Only 1 month and half after releasing Typo 5.2
as a major release, here is another one with a consequent bunch of
evolutions.

Let’s have a quick glance at them together

  • The main goal for Typo 5.3 was the dynamic permalink scheme, which
    forced us to completely rewrite our URL generation system and our
    cache system.

  • Feedburner support directly into your admin.

  • Semi static caching was buggy, and heavy, so we removed it. Typo now
    only does static caching.

  • Text filters configuration are now on a per user and on a per
    article basis. When migrating, all users will be given the blog
    default’s text filter.

  • More performance improvement, Typo is really fast now

  • Even more SEO capabilities. Tags and categories can be removed from
    search engines, using noindex, removed from sitemap.xml, and Typo now
    has a robots.txt editor.

  • Old drop down menus were replaced with some fancy calendar like date
    pickers.

  • Notifications for sidebar save and autosave are now done using
    growler, a nice growl like javascript thing.

  • Inline editor switching à la Wordpress. Isn’t that one cool?

  • Admin can now deactivate users.

or install the gem the traditionnal way.

Cheers,
Your Typo team
