Bricolage-Devel 1.11.1 Released


The Bricolage development team is pleased to announce the release of Bricolage 1.11.1, the second developer release in preparation for the forthcoming Bricolage 2.0. With a number of improvements to the functionality and interface over 1.11.0, this release holds a lot of promise for the forthcoming release of Bricolage 2.0 later this year. Some highlights:

  • Improved SFTP distribution support, with thanks to Denison University.

  • Errors in response to Ajax requests are now properly displayed to the user.

  • Publishing another document from within a formatting template now queues that document for publication, rather than publishing it right away. This allows a number of stories in a single publish request to all ask for the same document to be republished and that document will only be republished once, instead of for every story in the publish request.

  • The ability to upload a file directly into a related media element is now handled in the popup window for editing a related element, rather than inline in the document profile. This prevents errors when there are multiple related media elements, and saves CPU in the display of a document, as well.

  • Element in a document profile now remember whether they were toggled open or closed, with the default being closed, so that the state of a document is the same as it was last edited. This is an improvement over 1.11.0, where all elements were toggled open for display when a document was saved.
