Serious Core-1.4.2 Upgrade Bug Discovered

Picture 0 for Serious Core-1.4.2 Upgrade Bug Discovered

Regrettably, a serious upgrade bug has been discovered in the upgrade process for Core-1.4.2. Because of this bug, we cannot currently recommend any upgrades to Core-1.4.2 from any previous version of Zikula.

A straight install of Core-1.4.2 will operate correctly and is not affected by the bug.

The bug has already been corrected in Core-1.4.3 and it is hoped that Core-1.4.3 will be released within the month.

The bug (which again is only apparent on upgrade) will delete all the 'content' data from the Blocks table, rendering all blocks invalid and causing various other problems. There is currently no workaround other than to delete all blocks manually (in the blocks table and the blocks_placements table) and recreate them.

We are very sorry for this inconvenience.


Zikula Core Development Update

Picture 0 for Zikula Core Development Update

Zikula Core-1.4.3 has been progressing quite well in the last months although, it may not have been obvious to the casual observer of the commit log because most of the serious work was being done in a 'users' development branch.

The User Module in Zikula Core has been entirely refactored to support Twig and Symfony Forms in recent weeks. Not only that, but all functionality relating to the authentication and the registration of users has been separated into a new system module called ZAuth, which is also now included in the core.

As part of the division, new interfaces have been developed to implement independent authentication methods. In addition to the ZAuth module, another example of this is the OAuth module. With the OAuth module authentication may be handled by third party providers like Github and Google (these are already implemented). Future development of this module will include other providers like Facebook and Twitter and the potential for many others through the impressive League of Extraordinary Packages OAuth 2 Client.

Because of these dramatic changes, some BC-breaks have occurred with regard to the old authentication method API and some other minor users module changes.

In addition, work has proceeded on the refactoring most of the other system modules since Core-1.4.2 released. We are aiming toward a completely refactored system for the release of Core-1.4.3. Smarty and all legacy forms and will be gone and fully replaced by Symfony, Doctrine, Twig and new APIs that have been developed since Core-1.4.0.

We anticipate a July release of Core-1.4.3 in keeping with our four month release cycle, but this cannot happen without community support! We need your help in testing development code please!

Finally, the June goal for a Core-2.0.0-beta has been missed. The current goal would be to release a Core-2.0.0-beta shortly after the release of Core-1.4.3 although this will depend somewhat on the ease of removing all legacy code and also updating to Symfony-3.x within the core. At this time, we are unsure of the difficulty involved in these tasks.

Zikula Core Development Update

Picture 0 for Zikula Core Development Update

Zikula Core development is moving along at a very nice pace. Since the release of Core 1.4.0 in July 2015 we have moved to a more Symfony-like release process. This means that maintenance releases will be released on a timeline of approximately every four months instead of "when its ready." Already, Core-1.4.1 was released in November 2015, approximately four months after Core-1.4.0. Core-1.4.2 is scheduled for release in March 2016 - again, four months after Core-1.4.1. We intend to maintain this pace going forward.

The status of Core-1.4.x development can always be checked in the consistently updated Changelog. The changelog is also the location to check for newly added features, changes, deprecations and removals. The milestone release schedule is also useful as a general guideline of planned releases, but is not a guarantee of an actual release date.

Additionally, Core-2.0.0 is on pace for a beta release in late June 2016 in parallel with Core-1.4.3. We have also taken a very Symfony-like approach to the development of Core-2.0.0. Just as Symfony 3.0.0 and Symfony 2.8.0 were released together and are essentially the same product but with the removal of backward compatibility in the 3.0.0 product; so to will Zikula Core-2.0.0 be released in a similar way. Core-2.0.0 will be the same as a Core-1.x release (undetermined) with the removal of all backward compatibility. We will then proceed to develop new features into Core-2.x while marking Core-1.x as End Of Life (EOL). The exact timeline of this is yet to be determined.

Core-2.0.0 is essentially an extension of Symfony 3, allowing developers to modularize their approach to development and utilize a Modeling Layer via ModuleStudio to quickly generate features in their application for a fast development curve and easy forward maintenance. The 2.x Core takes advantage of many third party Symfony bundles and other vendor libraries to allow a developer to quickly get up and running with their custom application.


Pages 3.0.1 and Scribite 5.0.1 Released

Contributed by craigh on Dec 21, 2015 - 01:18 AM

Pages 3.0.1

Scribite 5.0.1

Pages will only work with Zikula Core-1.4.1+ and Scribite may work with previous versions, but this hasn't been tested.

ugh - after releasing the modules and posting this article I discovered that the upgrade routine had not yet been written (or tested) for Pages 3.0.0. So... It should work fine for new installs, but those needing to upgrade should probably wait until 3.0.1.

As always - it is safest to test all your upgrades in a development environment before proceeding to your production environment.

UPDATE 10 January 2016: Pages 3.0.1 is now available


Media Module for Zikula 1.4.1

Contributed by cmf on Dec 03, 2015 - 01:23 AM

I am proud to announce the availability of a new Zikula 1.4.1+ module. It is... a Media Module (and much more)! The module ​is not​ Simple Media 2, but it's been designed with it's general idea in mind. It works pretty good already. The current stable version is version 1.0.4. And even if you do find a bug: ​The automatic module upgrader that comes with it makes upgrading to future versions a One-Click-Experience!
