  • MODx Revolution 2.0.5: 175+ Fixed Issues and Improvements Including a Form Customization Overhaul

    It’s been only 2 months since the 2.0.4 was released and, thanks to the fast growing number of developers now working on MODX Revolution, we’ve got one of the most packed releases ever in 2.0.5.

    Form Customization has been completely revamped and rethought to make it much easier and intuitive to use and manage. In 2.0.5 we also introduce Access Policy Templates which enable you to easily create and manage policies.

    Here are the highlights of Revolution 2.0.5:

    - Over 175 issues resolved. Wow!
    - Form Customization Revamped
    - New Access Policy Templates
    - Tighter, more stable code with regards to multiple contexts and filemanager_path settings
    - Many xPDO improvements and fixes
    - Many UI fixes, such as Resource Tree enhancements, more phpthumb options, drag/drop improvements, and more
    - Fixed issues with APC, WinCache, eAccelerator and other caching systems
    - Tightened Security against XSS, added sanity checks on data transmission
    - Fixed issues with radio TVs, resourcelist TV, and other rare TV conflicts

    We couldn’t have made such a packed release without your help of reporting bugs, asking for new features, suggesting improvements, and submitting patches and language updates. Please continue to help make Revolution better by submitting to: bugs.modx.com (bookmark and use it often.)
