Release Notes - eZ Publish 5 Community Project 2013.05

Important Information Before You Start Installing

  • This is the 6th "eZ Publish 5" build, that comprises an eZ Publish 4.x build, under the 'ezpublish_legacy' folder, at the root of your eZ Publish 5 installation. We highly recommend, however, to get acquainted with the brand new eZ Publish 5 stack :)
 

Installation

Requirements

Make sure to check the eZ Publish 2013.05 system requirements before proceeding.

Proceeding: One Major Tip

When installing on a linux/UNIX system or Windows-based system, make sure to create a Virtual Host, before starting the installation wizard (this step is highly recommended).

 

Resources

The main entry point of knowledge for you is the eZ Publish 5 Cookbook. 

Have a look at Nicolas' slides presented at the first stage of the eZ+SensioLabs roadshow in Cologne, presenting eZ Publish 5.

Do not miss Joe Kepley's blog containing loads of great tutorials on eZ Publish 5. Also, read Damien's story of the upgrade of planet-ezpublish.fr to eZ Publish 5. Also, take a look at this tutorial by Granite Horizon, to take a safe start in creating controllers for eZ Publish 2013.05.

Still up-to-date

Our core-team has blogged on the fly when developing eZ Publish 5, here is a short overview:

We discussed the topic extensively at the first eZ Community UnConference, and got our first hands-on experience on Symfony 2.

We have also been speaking at:

Last, but not least: the eZ Publish 5 documentation still is under construction, but improvements were made since 2012.11. You can find it here: https://confluence.ez.no/display/EZP/eZ+Publish+Documentation, notably the Cookbook for developers. Feedback appreciated on this too.

 

Known issues

  • When trying to sign-in, through the 5.x stack, you will encounter an issue if you are running PHP 5.4 or above.
  • The final screen of the installation wizard still requires you to enter information to be able to finalize the installation. We will make this an opt-in step, as discussed here.
