Evolution 1.0.12 Released

Through community-led efforts, MODX Evolution continues to, er...evolve. This is the third release from the Ambassador-led Evolution team. Note: version 1.0.11 was bridged and will not be released.

This is truly a great achievement by the MODX Ambassadors who lead the Evolution project, including: Dmytro Lukianenko (Dmi3yy) and Mansori Yamamato (yama).
