Zikula Core 1.4.0 is intended as a transition release between the very popular 1.3.x series and Zikula Core 2.0.0. While maintaining nearly 100% backward-compatibility, 1.4.0 lays the foundations of Symfony, Doctrine, Bootstrap, Font-Awesome, jQuery and Twig which will be the basis of future development. A new namespaced module structure is established that will be the new standard for 2.0.0 extensions as well as providing many new tools and features to make your site exceptional.
I am so thankful to have reached this point! Thanks specifically to Axel and Christian for all their help and to so many others that have contributed to this point! This is a major milestone. Now start testing so we can make a final release!
Of course, I should have mentioned Drak who was instrumental in the first years of work in this release (Core 1.3.0 was released 13 July 2011 - 3.5 years ago!) Drak was was the developer with the most commits since the original 1.3.0 release and did the most work in creating the Forward Compatibility Layer which is crucial to the success of Core 1.4.0! Thank you Drak!
Nice work guys. This is really great.
