Magnolia CORE 5.6.11 is a bug-fixing and security release that delivers the following:

Changes for administrators

Backup module updated

The Backup module has been updated to version 2.2.3 to fix an error that occurred when restoring a backup. The new version can be used to restore backups for Magnolia CORE 5.6.11 or later. For earlier Magnolia CORE 5.6 releases, version 2.2.1 of the module still needs to be used.


Changes for authors

Content editor supports richText fields

In a custom content block, you can now use the richText field type for more advanced text formatting. Previously, only basic text formatting functions were available through the special text block type.

With this Magnolia release, richText initializes correctly in a multivalue field.


Changes for developers

Decorating dialogs with presenterClass possible

The system threw an exception every time you tried to launch a dialog decorated with a presenterClass property. With Magnolia CORE 5.6.11, you can now decorate and use dialogs with that property.


Third-party library updates


Guava has been updated to version 24.1.1 to fix a security issue.

MAGNOLIA-7527 ((warning) restricted access)


Tika has been updated to version 1.20 to fix some security vulnerabilities.

MAGNOLIA-7528MAGNOLIA-7532 ((warning) restricted access)


Jackrabbit has been updated to version 2.18.1.
