What has changed since Magnolia 5.2.8

Magnolia 5.2.9 delivers the following key fixes and enhancements:

  • Added a new property  expand  in the BoundedResize image operation. The property defines whether upsampling of images is allowed.
  • Fixed an ampersand (&) encoding issue in the stkRedirect template. Now you can pass query parameters in the target path such as
  • Fixed an issue where the system converted a date to a string when you edited a date in the JCR Browser, resulting always in the current date.
  • DefaultFormDataBinder.bindAndValidateFields() will read the underlying template configuration for the current form field and check for the value of a new boolean property  escapeHtml . Default value is true which escapes HTML entered into the field, in keeping with previous system behavior. The only exception is /modules/form/templates/components/formPassword which has escapeHtml=false and therefore will not escape HTML characters.

  • Multiple fixes to the Forum module.

  • Update to mobiledetect-1.1.1.jar library which is included in Device Detection 1.1.

Change log for 5.2.9 contains all the changes.
