The MODx team is pleased to announce the release of Evolution 1.0.2, the recommended production release for all Evo- or 0.9.x-based sites. This release repairs offers the benefits of the previous 1.0 and 1.0.1 releases with added bug fixes and important security updates. Please upgrade today.
Here are some of the feature highlights for MODx Evolution 1.0.2:
The 1.0.2 parser now allows snippets to be split across multiple lines and allows extra whitespace. This should improve the viewing and maintaing of complex snippet calls and is in line with the behavior in Revolution. For developers creating sites, this should be a great workflow tweak.
Multiple areas were improved in the 1.0.1 release to help protect against unlikely but possible CSRF attacks in the Manager. In addition, Ajax Search was updated to version 1.8.4 to prevent content injection when JS is off in the browser and the Manager password reminder has been updated to prevent forged logins under different usernames. 1.0.2 addresses an issue with Webuser password change requests.
Manager Manager is now a part of the core distribution and 1.0.2 contains additional bugfixes over previous releases. This Plugin leverages jQuery to allow developers to completely customize the Manager experience for end users. Some useful input widgets are included by default (tagging, color picker, image TV preview) and new widgets can be developed to streamline your daily content management. ManagerManager gives you the benefits of a fully bespoke/custom CMS, coupled with the support of large Open Source Community and maintaining an upgrade path for future releases.
Welcome to multilingual SEO: Our transalias plugin further enhances MODx’s robust capabilities as a SEO site platform, our URL transliteration plugin automatically creates human-readable URLs from the page titles of each Resource in the MODx Site Tree. additionally, Transalias can be configured to handle your exact rules for characters allowed in URLs.

The new MODx installer adds the time- and task-saving ability for developers to install MODx with their favorite and customizations of the Add-ons it handles.. Simply drop your snippets, chunks, plugins and modules into the relevant directories as .tpl files, add a phpDocs formatted header, and the installer automatically presents the choices for you to install the Elements directly into the MODx database. The 1.0.2 installer corrects an issue in the previous release that could lose the content type/disposition for non-admin users. The upgrade script should correct these during the installation routine.
The MODx installer supports multiple languages including RTL languages, while installing the main application in the same or an alternate language. (The default language can be overridden a per-user basis in the Manager.)
QM+ brings additional improvements have made this elegant front-end content editor even better for daily use.
Upgrading from Evolution 1.0 or earlier releases should be fast, simple and straightforward, and is highly recommended. If upgrading old sites, please be sure to manually migrate/merge any custom snippets or settings from your original assets directory, and as always back up everything before you begin! We look forward to your feedback and continuing to improve MODx.
