We’ve just made the binaries of the eXo Platform 4.1 release candidate available for download.
Compared to the previous version, we have added:
- dynamic container: a super easy way for extension developers to insert portlets in-page.
- simplified configuration: uncluttered and centralized, admins will love this.
- add-on manager: installing add-ons is now as simple as a single line of command.
As usual, we have also spent some time spraying the nasty bugs and polishing the rough edges. Check out the detailed change log.
To refresh your memory, the other main novelties in 4.1 are:
- Email notifications
- Calendar UX improvements
- New WYSYWG editor
- Enabling the upcoming Video Calls Add-on (more on this soon)
For those unfamiliar with our version scheme, this candidate release means that the 4.1 version is now feature complete. eXo QA teams will now focus on finalizing compatibility testing, and performance, security and cluster tests.
In addition, the doc team is on fire to update the documentation. They will keep you updated in this blog.
The release notes include instructions to upgrade from 4.1-M2 and from 4.0.7.
We have made sure that your upgrade will be as smooth as possible. This is no harder than a regular maintenance version update. But if you spot anything, please let us know.
