ImpressCMS 1.3.3 Release Candidate Now AvailablePublished by Fiammybe on 2012/9/10 (1983 reads)
ImpressCMS 1.3.3 Release Candidate can now be downloaded from our Development Releases page. Since the second beta, some more bugs were squashed, again thanks to the ongoing efforts of our testers and developers. This will be the most tested release ever, and we're very proud of that fact.
Content of this release
Here is the rundown of the changes since the 1.3.3 beta 2 package :
Attention: This is a Release Candidate!
A Release Candidate is not suitable for running a live website - use it for testing purposes only.
This release is based on the latest source code, so all known critical and major bugs should be gone. This release should be feature-complete, no large refactoring parts remain.
Compatibility with ImpressCMS 1.2
ImpressCMS 1.3 introduced a major reshuffling of the core source code, but a large effort has been made to keep compatibility with ImpressCMS 1.2 and its modules. The debug messages will display deprecated messages for any old code still being used and also suggest the proper resolution for them.
Updated versions of old modules have been released to take advantage of the optimizations and restructuring started in 1.3. New modules have also been introduced based solely on ImpressCMS 1.3 to provide alternatives and also fill some previous gaps in functionality.
Verifying whether modules work correctly at this stage will enable the module maintainers to fix their code. In the absence of an active module maintainer, a new one could be found or a migration path to a maintained module could be developed. The forums are the appropriate place.
Please test your favorite modules for compatibility, and report on the result of those tests (either working AND non working) in the appropriate forum.
