This goes out to all those who have been waiting for the latest version of Evo
A major update to the core code has been completed and Evo 1.1RC (Release Candidate) was recently released
The release can be found and downloaded from here: https://github.com/modxcms/evolution/releases/tag/v1.1RC2
A huge amount of hosting providers are updating their PHP versions to 5.5+ and as we all know Evo has its problems in 5.5 and 5.6 - 1.1RC works upto PHP 7, so hosting problems should be a thing of the past for some time to come.
There are new features in the 1.1RC release, including a fix to remove the so-called page limit.
In the config, there is now an extra box to tick in the friendly URLs section - "Use AliasListing only for Folders"
What this does, when chosen, is only write the URL path of folders to the "siteCache.idx.php", dropping the file size dramatically.
The "siteCache.idx.php" is one of the restrictions when it comes to large sites with thousands of pages - having thousands of pages whilst using FURL's creates a huge "siteCache.idx.php" as all of the FURLs are written to this file as well as tons of other information.
To ensure that all of the changes fully work in a multitude of situations I call on all Evo user to test this release
