MODX Revolution 2.7.1

MODX contributors and the integration team are proud to announce the first patch release of MODX Revolution 2.7. MODX 2.7.1 features many bug fixes to improve the experience of working with all of the new features that 2.7 introduced.

Highlights

You can get a full list of changes by reviewing the changelog, but below are some of the significant revisions in this release.

  • If a validation error occurs when saving an element, it now switches to the tab relevant to the issue.
  • Introduced an option to prevent removal of static files if automated static files are turned off.
  • The display of information about missing dependencies when you install a package/extra is improved.
  • A number of XSS (cross-site scripting) issues that require authenticated manager sessions were addressed in the manager.

Security is a Habit

Staying up-to-date with new releases is a good habit to keep your MODX-powered website as secure as possible. While no critical security issues appear in version 2.7.0, we recommend you upgrade as soon as possible. If you run a MODX site with manager users who may seek to cause harm or damage to other manager users, it would be a good idea to upgrade to 2.7.1 to mitigate XSS vulnerabilities that could be exploited.

It Takes a Village…

The release would not be possible without the attention and effort of our community contributors, including Ivan Klimchuck, Thomas Jakobi, Joshua Lückers, Mark Hamstra, Jason Coward, Christian Seel, tolanych, Sander Drenth, Ruslan Aleev, Ivan Bochkarev, ilyautkin, Travis Botello, Bakhtovar Gulomov, Jake Scaltreto, and AgelxNash.

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an unlimited variety of things that can cause problems, including server upgrades, corrupt files, accidental changes, outdated software, database hiccups and more.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