Magnolia CORE 5.7.6 is a bug-fixing and security release that also brings an improvement in the REST module.
REST services health check
With the exception of
, 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.
Multivalue fields can be exported again
This release fixes a bug in the Content Translation Support module that prevented multivalue fields from being exported even though they were registered as additional field types.
Out of memory when exporting large data
We have improved the import and export functions to eliminate out-of-memory errors occurring when exporting large binaries or workspaces.
Note: Considering the benefits of this improvement, we have decided to include it in this release even though it causes API incompatibilities, thus creating an exception to the rule of no API break in a minor release.
