    The MODx Team is excited to announce the release of MODx Revolution 2.0.0-beta-2.

    Get it here!

    There are 2 versions:
    • Traditional (beta-2.zip) - For regular users, with all files pre-extracted.
    • Advanced (beta-2-advanced.zip) - For those who want a smaller download and compressed install. Those who do not have root or sudo access to their machine should use traditional and not advanced.

    Main fixes and new cool stuff:


    • Manager upgraded to ExtJS 3.0 from 2.2; now faster and more responsive.
    • You now can drag/drop Elements and Resources directly into any content field and watch as it builds the tag for you.
    • We’ve added a Visual Tag Builder for Elements, where after drag/dropping them into fields, you can select a Property Set and customize values from a form, and watch it build the tag syntax for you after you’re done.
    • Now you can Quick Update or Create any type of Element or Resource. Don’t want to leave a page to update another Document? Quick Update it!
    • Toggle your Manager layout between tab-based and portal based with a setting.
    • Speed improvements to the backend manager.
    • Fixed issues with uninstalling packages; they properly revert and save zipped copies of older versions.
    • Package Download section now grays out packages you’ve already downloaded.
    • Manage all Plugins assigned to an Event now easily from an intuitive grid.
    • Added new methods for zip compresssion for installation and packaging that speeds up install time.
    • Many, many bug fixes across the framework.

    You can see some of the new features in this screencast.

    Special Note for Upgrades:
    If you are upgrading from Revolution 2.0.0-beta-1 you will need to clear your browser cache. If you experience issues during upgrade you may need to empty your core/cache directory. Mac OSX users upgrading from prior Revolution alphas: when replacing your current Revolution install folder with beta-2, if doing so locally, make sure to copy core/config/config.inc.php somewhere, as Mac OSX when overwriting folders does not recursively check and may delete the file.



    Please help by posting all bugs in JIRA, read the documentation in Confluence, and follow SVN developments in Fisheye.

    Thanks,
    The MODx Team
