Magnolia CORE 5.6.9 corrects a security vulnerability and brings the following changes and improvements: 

Changes for authors

Improved performance of the About Magnolia app

We have fixed a bug in the About Magnolia app to decrease the start-up time of the app.


Changes for developers

Publishing only specific paths

Receivers can be configured to publish only a specific path in a workspace. For example, the following receiver configuration publishes only the /specificPath path of the website workspace and ignores everything else:

  • WorkspaceDefinition properties fromPath and toPath are set to /specificPath.
  • The workspace property is set to website and the excluded property to false


Tomcat 9 server configuration with relaxed query chars

Tomcat 9 is less tolerant regarding special characters compared to some previous versions. To bring back the same support for special characters as it was on Tomcat 8 — for instance to query the Delivery endpoint API with filters — we have added the [, ], and | characters to the relaxedQueryChars attribute on the Connector element in the server.xml configuration file.



If you are upgrading from an earlier version, read the Upgrading to Magnolia 5.6.x page first and check the Known issues section on it.

Security advisory

We have fixed a security issue with this release. We keep details of this kind of fix private in line with our Security Policy. Contact our Support Team if you need more information.



See the 5.6.9 changelog for all the changes. 

Updated modules

Please be aware that the version numbers for the Magnolia main and UI projects are not in sync with the version number of this release. 

If you are updating from an earlier version:
Projects based on an older maven archetype may not build correctly starting with Magnolia 5.6.3 because the version of the Magnolia main modules is not the same as the Magnolia bundle anymore. If you experience a problem, please update your project parent pom.
