What has changed since Magnolia 5.2.5

Magnolia 5.2.6 delivers the following key fixes and enhancements:

  • Added the possibility to validate fields in workflow dialogs.

  • Updated to Commons Compress 1.8.1. This library is used to zip content. Fixes issues with non-ASCII characters and indexing files for full-text search.
  • Registered the  rss workspace for cache flushing. Fixes an issue where you had to flush the cache so that an RSS feed update would show on a public instance.

  • Fixed a UUID conflict that occurred when you re-publish pages that were never edited but were rendered on the public instance.
  • Made the getDefaultLocale() method multisite-aware. Fixes an issue where the locale could not be resolved in a multisite setup that uses a custom site definition.
  • Fixed an issue in the user dialog where field values were not saved if you created new fields.
  • Fixed an issue where AdminCentral became unusable if its servlet mappings were missing.
  • Fixed registration of external CKEditor plugins.
  • Changed the InstallBinaryResourcesTask so that it overwrites existing resource nodes.
  • Added the possibility for ThemeUpdateHandler to install two images with the same extension, such as icon.jpg and icon.gif. Set the last parameter stripExtension to false to enable the new feature.

    InstallTextResourcesTask(String taskName, String taskDescription, String encoding, String pattern, String template, boolean processed, String modelClass, boolean preserveResourcesParameters, boolean stripExtension)
