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. Customers who opt for the extended maintenance will need a new license key to run future versions of Magnolia 5.7. If you have any questions or to subscribe to the extended maintenance, please get in touch with your local contact at Magnolia.

Magnolia CORE 5.7.9 is a bug-fixing and security release that also delivers a few improvements.

Timeout for locking mechanism

There is now a five-minute timeout for the locking mechanism to mitigate an issue where nodes remain locked after publishing. For more details about this issue, see EEPUBLISH-28.

In addition, the logging of publishing operations on the receiver has been moved from the TRACE level to the DEBUG level.


Improved observation mechanism

When a new version of a content node is created in one workspace, the improved Magnolia observation mechanism (info.magnolia.observation.*) makes sure that Magnolia does not react unnecessarily to any event that creates a node in /jcr:system.


Targeted notification on synchronization failure

With version 1.9.1 of the Synchronization module, a notification is now sent to configured users whenever synchronization fails. To allow notifications for certain users, in the modules/synchronization-app/config folder, create a user group called notificationGroups and add a list of string properties to it. Each property represents the user name you wish to notify.

Synchronization fails when you move a node between subtrees. A workaround is to publish any problematic node manually and sync again.

Updating to Synchronization 1.9.1 requires Magnolia CORE 5.7.9+.
