Revolution 2.2.5—Improves Media Sources, Caching & More

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

We would like to extend sincerest thanks to the individual members of the MODX community who contributed code to this release: danyaPostfactum, Evengard, rtripault, bertoost, eprochasson and myfreeweb. Feel free to give them props or buy them a beer. In addition we'd like to thank the members of the community that provided updates for local languages.

If you're using MODX Revolution and have not upgraded to 2.2, it has been one of biggest releases to date. With the Manager interface refinements, other additions including Media Sources and the release of the Articles add-on, now is the time to upgrade to this latest version. For details on the major features read the complete MODX Revolution 2.2 announcement for more details.

MODX Diagnostics

MODX’s Open Source software is 100% free for anyone to download and use. As the team behind it for more than a decade, we know it inside, out, and then some.

Like any software, sometimes things break; we can usually fix them very fast. But, we do have to charge for our time to support our families and fund its ongoing development. There are almost an unlimited variety of things that can cause problems, including server upgrades, corrupt files, accidental changes, outdated software, database hiccups and more. We will save you a lot of time and frustration, and get you back in action.

With our MODX Diagnostic service, we determine the source of issues, and often fix them on the spot. For more extensive problems needing more time, like hacked sites or overdue upgrades, we provide additional estimates and guidance. MODX Diagnostics cost $99 for standard business hours support (US Central Time), or $500 for priority, rush or after-hours emergencies.

If you don’t have budget for professional support from the source, you look for answers in the MODX Forums or Documentation, or seek help from MODXers in the Community Slack, or from MODX Professionals near you.
