Help Ready Revolution 2.2.7 for Release

In the next couple of weeks (on or around April 9) we will release MODX Revolution 2.2.7. In the time leading up to this release, we invite everyone interested in testing to help ensure all major issues are resolved and no new issues have been introduced.

This version includes a new setting (cache_alias_map) to turn off the mapping which caches URLs, per context (all the urls to pages) which will enable sites with huge numbers of resources to perform better. 100,000 Resources uses ~130Mb RAM on & ~24Mb off.

Starting today you can download timestamped versions of the impending release to test with updated versions daily or as changes are integrated. We will post new testing versions in this forum post.

Issues Found in Testing

If you find new issues while testing, please post them in the Revo project tracker so we can correct them prior to release. New features, minor or trivial issues will likely be prioritized for an upcoming release as appropriate.

Translations

If you are are a translator updating a lexicon in MODX, now is time to start if you haven't been monitoring the updates. Submit your pull-requests to the release-2.2 branch (not to develop). For more information on translations you can take a look at this forum post.

How can we help?

Tell us the general reason for reaching out so we can connect you with the right team.

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an unlimited variety of things that can cause problems, including server upgrades, corrupt files, accidental changes, outdated software, database hiccups and more.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.

  I’m not ready to pay, let’s talk…
