Today we released the first patch release for MODX Revolution 2.3. With 2.3.1 we have resolved a number of annoyances and bugs that were missed in pre-release testing. Revolution 2.3 features a refined and updated MODX Manager with an all-new theme based on Peter Knight’s design.
MODX’s story began just over a decade ago on a dialup connection in rural Alabama—close to where Lynyrd Skynyrd recorded some of my favorite music growing up. I returned to visit family for the 4th recently, and while walking through the kitchen, I glanced down at the light filtering through the trees onto the wall. There it was: the phone jack I plugged into all those years ago.
Along with the releases of the latest 2.2.15 and 2.3 versions of MODX, today also brings updated features and software to the MODX Cloud stack.
Today we proudly announce the release of the long-awaited MODX Revolution 2.3. This is a huge release incorporating more than a thousand commits by dozens of code contributors and translators, and countless bug reporters.
Revolution 2.2.15 was released today. This patch release addresses a critical security issue related to the Manager login and logins using the Login snippet. In addition, there were several other minor security issues and bugfixes.
With MODX Revolution 2.3, site builders will gain the ability to quickly change the way the back end Manager looks. Here's an overview of how Manager themes are constructed, and what it takes to start tweaking them.
To make sure Revolution 2.3 is the release everyone hopes for, we decided to delay its final release until July 15th. This should provide for more quality assurance time, help vet that Extras work as expected, and to give translators more time to update their native languages.
Today we’re announcing improvements and updates, including more performant and reliable backups, enhanced Git, remote database access and software stack updates. We've also made MODX Cloud “less clever” by toning down the language used in the Dashboard.
We're nearing release of 2.3 and we wanted to let you know what's new in 2.3 as well as ask for your help in preparing for it's planned release on July 1, 2014.
After years of threatening to do so, we finally created a MaxCDN integration for MODX. Spoiler alert: things get fast, fast.
