This release offers an improvement to the performance of comment management with a “show more comments” button that allows journalists to browse paginated comments. Alongside this new feature, there were a number of bugfixes related to the upgrade from the previous version, plus improvement of library handling with the use of Composer (a dependency manager for PHP).
This release fixes a vulnerability which exploited the Admin interface’s password restoration. This patch permanently fixes that issue, and allows full use of the password restore functionality. Upgrading is highly recommended for all users. In addition, there are improvements to the media archive which offer far greater stability to news organisations with large collections of images, and articles, topics, themes, and performance have all seen minor fixes and improvements.
The user experience and features for Geolocation tools were improved. The "About & Help" screen was added to the admin interface. Template management was overhauled with advanced theme configuration. User permissions were improved. Hundreds of miscellaneous bug fixes and improvements were made.
Issues relating to user permissions and selecting articles have been dealt with and content search now pulls up all content from translated issues. Reported bugs involving the HTML button unnecessarily cleaning code for embedded objects and an occasional failure to save content were identified. Upgrading also no longer creates an occasional error in the TinyMCE editor. ReCaptcha for Newscoop’s subscription feature is now implemented. Blog listings (blogs, entries, comments) were also improved with new pagination and a link to blog entries list added to make finding content easier.
