New in Fred 1.1.1

Updates & Improvements

  • El Finder was updated to version 2.1.50. This fixed a few pesky bugs, especially the one where you couldn’t see the directory names.
  • Refactored the Dropzone class for ~future evil schemes~ to make it perform more consistently with less code.
  • Translation updates.

Bugfixes

  • Fred now properly redirects to the new page URL when updating the alias from the front-end.
  • Speaking of aliases, Fred also now auto-generates one if it’s somehow empty making it infinitely more likely that people, you know, can see the beautiful content you just created.
  • Fred now helpfully saves the page title you entered when duplicating an existing page rather than the default.
  • Links in RTE content were broken when saving the page in the Manager. Now they’re not.
  • Some remnant development console logging was accidentally left in. Now it’s gone.
  • Fred Themes delayed loading script tags in in a too-clever way. Now it loads them in order from top to bottom as.
  • Fixed a user permission error around saving. Because content creators typically like to do that.
  • Blueprints no longer store the Element IDs, making them unique again (as they’re always regenerated when used).
  • Nested Dropzones sometimes refused to allow you to change the Elements inside them when they shouldn’t. Fixed.
  • Reorganized some code for future maintainability, and sanity in general.
