What has changed since Magnolia 4.3.4

Magnolia 4.3.5 is a bug fix release, fixing a bug in STK templates introduced in Magnolia 4.3.4. (MGNLSTK-668) It is a recommended update for all users of Magnolia 4.3.x.

Following this last minute bug, we had to revert the fixes to MGNLSTK-592, MGNLSTK-618, MGNLSTK-651, MGNLSTK-654 and MGNLSTK-667 are not available anymore. We will hopefully release yet another STK fix soon, including these.

This release includes a new version of the Standard Templating Kit (1.3.4).

The Magnolia team would also like to thank everyone who reported issues, contributed patches, or simply commented on issues for this release. Your continued interest helps us make Magnolia better.

Known issues

JBoss 5

There is an unfortunate issue, specifically when deploying under JBoss *5*: you will need to remove the Xerces jar from the Magnolia webapps: if deploying using WAR files, you can remove it from the archive, or with the following Unix command zip -d path-to-magnolia.war WEB-INF/lib/xercesImpl-2.8.1.jar. If deploying using an exploded directory, simply remove the WEB-INF/lib/xercesImpl-2.8.1.jar file. See MAGNOLIA-2577 for technical details.
If you get exception messages such as org.jboss.xb.binding.JBossXBException: Failed to create a new SAX parser and/or java.lang.ClassCastException: org.apache.xerces.parsers.XIncludeAwareParserConfiguration, this is the issue you're hitting.

Weblogic 10

When deploying on Weblogic 10, there is a version conflict while using commons-lang. While Weblogic-10 is distributed with commons-lang-2.3.jar, JackRabbit and Magnolia need at least commons-lang-2.4.jar. To resolve this issue, modify setDomainEnv.sh of Weblogic and add commons-lang-2.4.jar to the PRE_CLASSPATH. Since version 2.4 of commons-lang doesn't remove any methods, but only adds new API and fixes known bugs, there is no adverse effect from this change to the Weblogic installation.

Weblogic 9

The imaging module doesn't function properly due to conflict with a javax.imageio plugin bundled with this version of Weblogic. There is currently no known workaround for the issue.

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