What has changed since Magnolia 5.2

Magnolia 5.2.1 delivers the following fixes and enhancements:

  • Added the possibility to process requests after the Rendering filter
  • Added an install condition that detects problematic environments, stops the installation process, and warns the user.
  • Added support for the mgnl:page node type to the XMLFileSplitter - a tool used to split large bootstrap files and exports. 
  • Added the Tools, Backup and Synchronization modules to the Enterprise Edition bundle.
  • Changed who receives error messages. Only the current user is notified when an action they perform fails. The message is not broadcast to all users.  
  • Updated workflow process instances so that running workflows persist and are actionable after server restart.
  • Added a dependency check that warns the user when they delete a content item that is depended upon by other content.
  • Made the Page Editor multisite-aware. This allows site specific i18n configuration and displays language options to editors.
  • Various security fixes for roles, ACLs and the Security app.

An aggregated change log for 5.2.1 contains all the changes.

This release is a recommended update for all users of Magnolia 5.
