eZ has changed a lot over the last year: management changes, slight product strategy update, new engineering office in Katowice, Poland, and not the least: technical changes! And we have been wanting to share more on such changes for a while. Why they happen, why we went such way and not another. This is what this blog is about.

I have had a couple of problems related to eZ Autosave the last year, which have been quite a challenge to figure out. So in case someone else might have the same problem, I'll make a note of it here.

Continuing with the migration of a site from eZ Publish 4 to eZ Publish 5, here's a sample of how you can use legacy code from a Symfony controller and use Twig templates to render the response.

Using virtual machines when developing eZ Publish websites have been useful in 2 main ways (if not more): working in a different server environment than your current machine and standardizing the dev environment for a team of developers. At the moment, I have Ubuntu 13.10 installed as my main operating system, and from time to time I need to work with some older eZ Publish versions that require PHP versions older than Ubuntu 13.10's default; in fact, the oldest eZ Publish version that I can run out of the box on Ubuntu 13.10 is eZ Publish 4.7. I don't like the idea of installing another OS just to work with an older eZ Publish version; that requires creating another partition, configuring grub, and so on. Using virtual machines enables me to work within another OS inside my main OS. That way I can work on a standardized environment specific to each client, while continuing to use my favorite base OS and tools. In this tutorial, I will describe how to install and configure Oracle VirtualBox to create virtual machines that run eZ Publish.

I've always been a bit annoyed by the way eZ Publish 5 apps are structured. Having to modify the original EzPublishKernel, or modify the original configuration files, is really something I have a hard time doing.
A couple months ago, I started thinking about a better, Symfony 2 like way to do it better. Here it is.
