by Jay Stephen Gilmore

Published on October 2, 2012

Today we released MODX Revolution 2.2.5. We’ve made many, many improvements since the 2.2.4 release in June—well over 150 commits. Fixes and improvements of note include improved Media Source function, Caching enhancements and a handling to prevent blank pages occuring on some older hosting environments. And, we finally updated the MODX logo in the Manager.

Here are the highlights of the 2.2.5 release:

  • Media Source fixes with Elements and Static Elements
  • Corrected Media Source errors with modParser->getElement()
  • Corrected Media Source errors with static element paths
  • Optimized cache refresh query, big boost for sites with large Contexts, on MySQL 5.1 or earlier as well as addition cache fixes.
  • Added support for environments not supporting flock causing blank pages due to corrupted cache files
  • Corrected various Resource editing bugs related to changing template
  • ResourceGroup restricted TV’s losing value when edited by users w/o access
  • Form Customization rules now applied when changing Template
  • Changing Template no longer unsets Empty Cache for Resource
  • For more details read the complete changelog
