Zikula Core 1.4 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, Core-1.4 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.

  1. Congrats to all who are involved with this version, and thanks for the new upgrade path from earlier Zikula versions.

    I just completed an upgrade 1.4.2 to 1.4.3 upgrade and, except for a minor hiccup all is up and working. Nice!


  2. Congratulation team! Thanks for your efforts!
