Zikula Core 1.4.0 "Overture" released!

Contributed by cmf on Jul 25, 2015 - 12:02 AM

The core development team is proud to announce the availabilty of Zikula Core 1.4.0 "Overture".

Zikula Core 1.4.0 "Overture" is available as of today, 25 July, 2015.

More than four years have passed since the initial Zikula 1.3.0 release. More than 1400 issues have been opened and fixed during the 1.4.0 development. Since we released the first 1.4.0 release candidate in Februrary, more than 500 commits have been made to fix further bugs. A few days ago, release candidate 5 was voted to be the final 1.4.0 release.

Only very few backwards compatibility breaks were introduced (nothing compared to the 1.2.x to 1.3.x update) and most can be fixed with only a few minor adjustments. Further blog posts about upgrading, new features and future plans will be created over the next few weeks. By the way, [5] already uses a few months old development version of Zikula 1.4.0 and will be upgraded to the final release in the next few weeks. Dizkus has been rewritten and updated to work with Zikula 1.4.0 (including full upgrade from Zikula 1.2.x). It will be released soon.

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.

As always, please report all bugs, concerns and feature requests to our issue tracker on Github [6]. If you don't want to create a GitHub account, don't hesitate to ask in the comments or forums at

  1. Great! Thanks for all efforts in this version. Thanks for participate in the development of this version. Now it's time of modules 1.4.0 :D

  2. Great

    Superb work. The future is bright. Krator keep in mind that most 1.3 modules will work out of the box, since 1.4 series is backwards compatible with 1.3. See it as an extension of 1.3 also supporting technology that will be in Zikula 2.0.

  3. Yes, I know espaan, but I want see "the new technology that will be in Zikula 2.0", jeje. Or a Simplemedia for change my site of mediashare to ZK 1.4...
