As Halloween is around the corner, and temperatures signal the change of seasons, we can look back at this week with new fast track releases, a final chance to vote for the CMS Critic Awards, and more.

Week 43 in Review


The October releases of eZ Platform and eZ Enterprise are available now

"As October comes to a close, the temperature is finally beginning to drop here in Brooklyn, and another thing that’s about to drop is the October Fast Track (FT) release of eZ Platform and eZ Enterprise!"

This Fast Track release includes several improvements in eZ Platform's user interface such as:

  • A preview of content objects within the Universal Discovery Widget
  • The implementation of error handling at both the client and server sides, allowing developers building their own field types to eventually rely only on server side error handling, without having the user experience suffer
  • A new interactive window informing the user when several drafts are already created for a specific content item, which lets the user choose if he or she wants to edit one of the drafts or create a new one
  • The integration of the search feature within the main (back-end) interface and the refinement of its look and feel

And to quote David Liedle, Technical Product Manager at eZ:

"Did you know you can contribute to the next release? Your feedback can help identify bugs and suggest improvements, and if you'd like to submit a Pull Request (PR) on GitHub, the community and all the engineers at eZ are very happy to help you become a part of the source code of eZ Platform itself!"

We look forward to chatting with you on Slack ( https://ezcommunity.slack.com | Get an invite to join the Slack channel ), and we can all look forward to the next release two months from now (an LTS or “Long Term Support” release)!

You can read the full announcement on our blog, download the release, and check the release notes for its full details.

Release notes

The documentation team is merging releases notes into a single resource, making the release notes available under https://doc.ez.no/display/DEVELOPER/Release+Notes. This is a work in progress, to improve accessibility to the release notes, so you can still expect some minor changes.

Tip: if you have suggestions, and want to help improve and contribute to our documentation, check out this page: https://doc.ez.no/display/DEVELOPER/Contribute+to+Documentation.

Each week, we publish a roundup of highlights from the eZ ecosystem on share.ez.no, which we republish here on the eZ Blog. If you have any news or events to share, please contact me.
