  • A Long Time Coming But Evolution 1.0.5 is Here.

    It’s been more than 6 months since Evolution 1.0.4 was released and many people are making the move to Revolution but we are committed to continue building on and refining our beloved Evolution and making sure it is as safe and easy as ever. Due to a number of imporant security improvements we consider upgrading to Evolution 1.0.5 mandatory.

    Some highlights of this release include:

    • Security Enhancements—ongoing work to make sure your sites are safe from malicious attackers, including a workaround for a major PHP security bug that could crash servers running outdated versions of PHP
    • Manager Bugfixes and Enhancements—Over 20 improvments to the Manager to make it behave more consistently and predictably
    • Custom TVs and Widgets—Site builders can now define the HTML markup and behavior of TVs for truly custom TV behavior by inserting code directly into Input or Output widgets or using the @FILE binding to attach behaviors via files on the fielsystem
    • Template Inheritance Improvements—controllable via a System Setting, now you can specific Template inheritance for child docs based on Siblings (with a fallback to parent), Parents (current behavior) or just the System Default.
    • @INHERIT Improvements—Now works fully with @FILE bindings and also allows you to specify a default fallback in the event no ancestor values are found

    • Multibyte Language Enhancements—the Japanese community provided many enhancments to the core to improve experiences in multi-byte languages
    • All Major Core Components Updated—All major Add-ons brought up to their latest version, including jQuery 1.4.4
