  • FYI:

    Despite all of the new features and bug fixes in the recently released 0.9.6.2, we feel there are a number of significant new issues which warrant an additional release of the 0.9.6 series before we refocus on the improvements coming in Evolution 1.0. So, without further ado, I have made MODx 0.9.6.3-rc1 available to download. Please give this release candidate a thorough once over; your feedback makes MODx what it is.

    Though it hasn’t been long, there are a large quantity of new features and additional bug fixes in this release. For those having encoding/charset problems in 0.9.6.2, this should solve those issues that slipped into that release. Here are the key changes in this release:
