This week we share news about the new eZ Platform 1.8 Fast Track release, eZ Conference 2017, a back end prototype based on Angular by CJW Network and more.
eZ Platform v2 Project Update
David Liedle, Technical Product Manager at eZ, provides an update on the eZ Platform v2 project.
"We’ve completed the first 1-week sprint in the v2 project! This first sprint (“Sprint Zero”) was purely exploratory, starting with some prototyping to get our hands dirty and see what’s possible. We met our goal of answering questions (and generating new ones!), and we’re pleased with the results."
Welcome eZ Platform 1.8
Another Fast Track release was introduced last week: eZ Platform 1.8.0. This release brings new features, improvements and many bug fixes. Some of these features include the new Universal Discovery Widget which allows for a more pleasant and efficient way of content browsing in the back end. Other features include subitem sorting and an improved Online Editor. For details, please read the full announcement.
David Liedle, Technical Product Manager at eZ, also noted the start of eZ Platform V2.0 in his blog post introducing eZ Platform 1.8: “We look forward to the next Fast Track Release in 2 months and, perhaps even more exciting, we are beginning Sprint Zero to begin experimenting with the groundwork for eZ Platform v2.0! If you are interested in this next-generation project, you can follow the formation of the requirements on GitHub: https://github.com/ezsystems/requirements”

CJW Network publishes prototype for eZ Publish/eZ Platform admin backend
Donat Fritschy from CJW Network writes on share.ez.no: “eZ Systems has raised and discussed the question of revamping the eZ Platform UI in different blog posts. We at CJW Network feel that releasing our AngularJS and REST based prototype can add some practical insights to this discussion.”
This project is based on eZ Publish 5.4/2014.11 and AngularJS V1.6, but preliminary tests with eZ Platform V1.8 were successful. You can try out the admin back end in a demo, and also check out the code on GitHub.
