MODX Revolution 2.5-RC2 Out Now, Help Us Ready it for Release

A new feature release of MODX Revolution is coming soon and we've published the second release candidate for MODX Revolution 2.5, today.

What's New in Revolution 2.5

This new release of MODX Revolution includes a number of excellent new features including:

  • PHP7 compatibility (it's coming soon to a server near you)
  • Much more mobile-friendly Manager as a stepping stone towards a new manager in the future.
  • Custom Manager Pages (the views for applications built into MODX) are now much easier to build using HTML and MODX Tags. Thanks to Romain Tripault and Susan Ottwell for this example of the new Custom Manager Pages in 2.5.
  • Accessibility improvements worked into the core Manager experience including screen reader and keyboard navigation on the Login screen.
  • Significant improvement to the parser which could potentially improve pre-caching performance by 15%;
  • New installs get a new look. Instead of the empty blank page in previous versions you now get a nice intro page with some important links so new users can more easily get started.

Let’s take the time to thank the individual contributors to this release (in no particular order):Jan Peca, Jason Coward, Thomas Jakobi, Ronald Exterkate, Mike Reid, inreti, Zaigham Rana, Jan Tezner, Elizabeth, Romain, argnist, Anton Pastukhoff, Илья Уткин, Gildas NOEL, Ivan Klimchuk, JP DeVries, Kirill, Mark Hamstra, Mat Dave Jones, Nikolay Lanets, Sergey Shlokov, and Vasily Naumkin, along with many other contributors who log & triage issues, review PRs, and commit code.

In order for a successful release of 2.5 we need people to test these release candidates on their projects, of course, do keep in mind there will be bugs—that's what we're looking to find. Here’s what you need to get started or upgrade to MODX Revolution 2.5-RC2:

Hi. We’re MODX.

We’re here to help you fix, build and grow fantastic sites. How can we help?




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…
