Releases

Here are the release notes for Gaseous. Catch up on the latest information for major, minor and patch releases.

Gaseous v0.5.1

October 18, 2020 6:45:52 PM PDT

Gaseous v0.5.1 introduces a couple new features. The cache time for published content is now configurable via settings. Also, there is now a process for deleting archived records via CLI (so - potentially, a cron job) that deletes archived records that are a certain age or older. This "age" is configurable via the settings panel, as well. Finally, the CK Editor instance has returned to using the CDN, but has been heavily reconfigured to reflect a better rich-text content editor experience.

Gaseous v0.4.1

September 05, 2020 10:17:02 PM PDT

Gaseous v0.4.1 is a minor update that introduces some new features for the CMS' CK Editor instance and additional encoding management/consistency for CMS generated content. CK Editor is now hosted locally within the app instead of relying on the official CDN. This provides more granularity around plugin and configuration management.

Gaseous v0.3.0

September 04, 2020 5:44:48 PM PDT

Gaseous v0.3.0, the latest minor release, introduces improved content management. The Content Management Admin Panel (/admin/content/) now has a sortable table and alphabet filter to easily sort and filter through the list of pages published to the site. Also, each CMS-generated page includes an Edit this page link for users associated with a role that has edit_content enabled.

Gaseous v0.2.3

September 02, 2020 1:56:03 AM PDT

Gaseous v0.2.3 is a series of small patches and fixes for email validation during registration. It also ensures that the homepage is correctly placed at the top of the sitemap.

Gaseous v0.2.0

August 31, 2020 9:25:53 PM PDT

The next minor release, Gaseous v0.2.0, introduces some new features:

- File uploader for admins. This allows files to be uploaded to the upload root, which used to be restricted to CK Editor uploads only. File uploads primarily went through CK Editor as its backend image/file upload service, but has been expanded for standalone uploads in this new panel.

- CK Editor now uses two different backend services for uploads. Originally, it just supported images for img src links, without accounting for linking uploads through the Edit Hyperlink functionality.

- For both of the new features above, there is a new setting for restricting allowed file extensions. This is aggregated with the built-in allowed settings, which include a handful of image types. By default, the extensions allowed (in addition to the allowed image extensions from before) include doc, docx, pdf, and txt.

- Users now have an account management option available. This allows the user to change their own first name, last name, email address, and password. Token-based logins, upon successful validation, redirect users to this page to encourage the user to change their password without the need to fill in their current (presumably forgotten) one.

 

Installations starting at this version will see the new file_uploader admin panel enabled for administrators by default. However, if you are updating to this version, you will need to enable this to a role of your choice in the /admin/settings panel. New installations will see Log Out and Account Settings links in the bottom-right of the footer.

Gaseous v0.1.5

August 29, 2020 9:06:19 PM PDT

Gaseous v0.1.5 introduces some patches for both the installation and update process. Some of these were minor tweaks, other issues were exposed after some disruptive workflows.

Gaseous v0.1.2

August 28, 2020 5:12:38 PM PDT

This release addresses some minor encoding issues between the CMS system and the database layer. A more compatible solution was found to ensure UTF-8 compatibility across the board.

 

Gaseous v0.1.0

August 07, 2020 4:00:06 PM PDT

Gaseous v0.1.0 represents the first major, pre-production release of the Gaseous Content Management System. As a young project, this release is better known as a stable demo of a new CMS concept with many opportunities for development, robust improvement to current featuers and the unbound potential for new functionality.

Gaseous welcomes open source contributors to build onto the fully functional CMS through code development, feature requests and promoting this new project to the open source community through word-of-mouth and creative marketing ideas. I encourage you to ask questions, get involved, and check it out for yourself!
