Magnolia CMS 6.1.5 brings bug fixes, security updates and a few usability improvements.

Configuration to disable search result ranking

In the Periscope Result Ranker module, the new info.magnolia.periscope.ResultRankerConfiguration allows you to entirely disable the ranking of Find Bar search results. You may want to use this configuration to improve memory usage or resolve potential compatibility issues with DL4J libraries.


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.


Third-party library updates

This release comes with the following third-party library updates to fix some security and incompatibility issues:

If you are upgrading from an earlier version, read the Upgrading to Magnolia 6.1.x page first and check the Known issues page.

Some of the screenshots in the documentation still show the legacy Magnolia 5 UI. Please bear with us as we work to update them.

API incompatibility due to fix

Fixing an out-of-memory error when exporting large files in Java 11 has caused an API incompatibility in this release. This is an exception to the rule of no API break in a minor release. For more details, see the Clirr report.


Publishing and Site modules inaccessible to non-DX Core users

Publishing 1.1.4 and Site 1.2.4 rely on artifacts in maintenance mode, making them inaccessible to non-DX Core users. To fix this, the recommended Publishing 1.2 and Site 1.3 are now available in our public Nexus repository and will be bundled with Magnolia 6.1.6.


Dependency on Publishing module downgraded

In the Publishing Transactional module, the dependency on the Publishing module has been downgraded to version 1.0.9.


Deprecated requestor properties replaced

The properties ATTRIBUTE_REQUESTOR of info.magnolia.context.Context and requestor of info.magnolia.task.Task have been deprecated in favor of ATTRIBUTE_USERNAME and userName respectively.


Deprecated Content API classes replaced

In the Site module, the PropertyExistsDelegateTask and PropertyValueDelegateTask classes of the legacy Content API have been replaced with HasPropertyDelegateTask and ValueOfPropertyDelegateTask respectively.



See the 6.1.5 changelog for all the changes.
