The 1.5.0 release officially passed testing and is available for production usage. As always, the release is available free of charge to existing subscribers, with only a small amount of support time required for the roll-out.

Key feature:

Minor improvements:

  • Add a "listing image" field for every content type. This was needed as part of Plymouth's content migration, and brings more flexibility to the "CP Task List - Card Style" WYSIWYG component.

  • Add a WYSIWYG filter that ensures 'SEO friendly' URLs are always used in published content, even if they weren't setup when the content was edited.

  • Ensure 'bulk media upload' functionality is enabled on all sites by default.
  • Events: Make the date field required.
  • Consolidate the responsive preview functionality around a single solution.
  • Fix a permissions issue with our Intranet site product so that authenticated users can successfully edit their profiles.
