Magnolia CORE 5.6.13 is a bug-fixing and security release that also delivers several improvements.

Improved import and export functions for large data

The import and export functions have been improved to eliminate out-of-memory errors when exporting large binaries or workspaces.

(info) Considering its benefits, this improvement has been included in this release even though it causes API incompatibilities. This is an exception to the rule of no API break in a minor release.


Configurable depth of reference resolution in REST

With the referenceDepth property, you can configure the REST  Delivery endpoint API v2  to provide more than one level of reference resolution. In addition, you can toggle the referenceRepeat property to enable resolution of self-references into fully expanded nodes. For more details, see the configurable API v2 properties.


Selected system properties in REST responses

With the  REST Delivery API v2, you can use the systemProperties property to specify which system properties (for example, mgnl:createdBy or jcr:uuid) can be returned in REST responses.


REST services health check

With the exception of  magnolia-empty-webapp , you can now check whether a Magnolia instance is up and running by sending a REST request to a dedicated endpoint called  status. For more details, see the REST services health check  page.
