Dashboard Core

Dashboard 5.0.0 was released and deployed in all regions in June. Full release notes here.

The main initiatives of Dashboard 5 have been working on our backend and how the Dashboard is deployed and also upgraded. Some user facing changes:

  • Better possibility to handle localisations and language support in plugins and applications (requires applications to be translated and released to support this)

  • Zero downtime upgrades of Dashboard core: when Naviga upgrades, it will always be done using a separate installation and when the environment is ready users will get access to the new environment

  • Clear visibility of environment (stage/prod sidebar has its own colour)

  • Multiple improvements with so called "confirm on leave", with unsaved changes we now handle better if user hits "back" or change workspace/unit etc

Upcoming Production Release

Please note, that we have also released a new Minor version of Dashboard, version 5.1, in Stage. The most notable change are for administrators who work with workspace management – adding applications to workspaces have now been moved from the actual workspace to the Application Settings in the Dashboard menu. Other changes are "under the hood" changes needed for upcoming development initiatives.

Writer Core

Writer 7.2.0 release:

  • Always preserve annotations when copy/cut and pasting text

  • Fixed selection not selecting a newly created block node (image, contentpart, etc)

  • Fixed issue where teaser could sometimes be placed inside normal content

  • Fixed issue where contentMeta links could not be found when a teaser with an image was present in the article

  • Fixed issue where triple clicking or quickly changing selection would close the annotations menu

Writer 6 hot fixes

  • Hot fix Writer 6.5.8: Maintenance release which includes lambda upgrades.

  • Hot fix Writer 6.5.9: Images with multiple identical bylines should not crash the writer.

  • Hot fix Writer 6.5.10: Fixes bug where error message would not properly display when trying to save an article which had been updated externally.

Writer plugins

As a general rule, changes to Writer plugins require Writer Core version 7 or later. Hot fixes are sometimes made available in the Writer 6 track.

Check each plugin dependency for more information before upgrading plugins.
