This is a bugfix release fixing more than 30 issues, amongst which the most important are related to cache, page/icon statuses and IE6 compatibility. It is a recommended update for all users of Magnolia 3.6.x. As usual, the complete list of changes can be found on our Jira.

It is bundled with a new release of the DMS module, which also fixes a couple of links related issues.

How to update from an earlier version of Magnolia

Please refer to the  release notes for Magnolia 3.6. The procedure is identical - make sure you're using the Magnolia Tools version bundled with this release, however, i.e 1.0.4.

Please see the release notes pages for update instructions specific to the version you are updating to. If you're skipping versions (if you're updating from a fictional 1.2.3 to 1.2.6, for example), please read all release notes concerning the versions you're skipping too.

Known issues

Samples

The sample "Mail Form" page renders a blank page, due to a pretty silly mistake. See MAGNOLIA-2664. To fix this locally, edit the templates/samples/templates/sample-form.jsp in the webapp folders, and replace the following line:

          xmlns:cmsfn="http://www.magnolia-cms.com/tlds/cmsfn-taglib.tld"

by

          xmlns:cmsfn="http://www.magnolia.info/tlds/cmsfn-taglib.tld"

Leopard

Leopard's firewall behaves significantly differently than the firewall shipped with OSX 10.4. The symptoms are that Tomcat seems unreachable ("kCFErrorDomainCFNetwork:302"), but unfortunately no message is clearly logged about the issue.

Please see the list of known issues in the administration section for more details.
