Following the alpha1 release of eZ Publish we are happy to announce the beta1 release. It builds on the alpha1 and provides further bugfixes and adjustements.

Notable changes and improvements

  • Fixed an issue where class editing would make a class loose its group
  • Make sure that eZ JSCore is enabled by default
  • Several "loose" functions are deprecated
  • Deprecated classes have been removed
  • ezi18n() has been deprecated, so from now on calls to to the translation system from PHP code should go via ezpI18n::tr()
  • templateInit() has been deprecated, so from now on calls to to get template instance should go via ezTemplate::factory()
  • Important fix in the mysqli database handler, fixing a potential apache crash
  • Cache clearing scripts are now more strict, when being run by root.

For detailed changes see the changelogs below.

Known issues in this beta release

  • Currently eZ Publish will try to write a cache file into its var directory, before the setup wizard has been able to verify the file permissions, in order to avoid getting a warning message about this, the file permissions can be adjusted manually before starting the setup wizard, so that the web server has proper write permission on the var folder.

Notes on backwards compatibility

For more in-depth information on these changes have a look at the dedicated document for this: backwards compatibility information
