Magnolia 5.7 reached extended end of life on May 31, 2022. Support for this branch is limited, see End-of-life policy. Please note that to cover the extra maintenance effort, this EEoL period is a paid extension in the life of the branch.

If you have any questions or to subscribe to the extended maintenance, please get in touch with your local contact at Magnolia.

Magnolia CORE 5.7.2 is a maintenance and security release that delivers the following improvements and bugfixes:  

Changes for developers

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.


Fixed full-text search of documents

Indexing and full-text search of documents works as expected again after upgrading third-party dependencies for Apache POI and Apache Commons Compress.


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



If you are upgrading from an earlier version, read the Upgrading to Magnolia 5.7.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.


API changes

In the Google Sitemap module, on the class SitemapTableColumnDefinition, on the method #getAlignment, we had to change the return type. The type has changed from com.vaadin.v7.ui.Table.Align to java.lang.String.


See the 5.7.2 changelog for all the changes.
