Announcing 2sxc 8 on Back To The Future Day!

Yes, it's true. 2sxc 8.0 is here, and it's awesome. Here the key highlights

  1. Amazingly fast UI
  2. Edit content without going into edit-mode (much faster this way)
  3. ...and save content, without reloading the page (thanks to AJAX)
  4. Introducing ADAM - I'll tell you more about him later
  5. Totally refactored admin UI with at least 25 new power-features
  6. Did I already say super fast?
  7. Field-Group-Headings
  8. Framework to create own field-types (so your own string-employee-from-backend-picker)
  9. Newest image-resizer
  10. really nice UI
  11. fast... :)

And much, much more. 

Just so you know, 8.0 also has 2 important breaking changes:

  1. It brings the new image-resizer. So if you have the pro-cache, make sure you upgrade that too
  2. The gps picker was always a bit hacky - so we are changing the implementation. more details to come...

And loads of small goodies like

  1. Save without closing dialog
  2. drag-drop-image upload
  3. collapsing sections in the edit-dialog
  4. copy-entity feature
  5. copy-entity in replace-with-existing
  6. loads of debug-modes for advanced users
  7. ...

And finally, what is still missing in 8.0.0

  • The GPS-Picker
  • The edit-list-dialog

Super major version, our customers love the new UI, especially not having to "Edit Page" to edit a 2sxc content. It's really fast and the content localisation at the module level is really straigtforward. I haven't seen all the possibilities yet, there are so many, Thanks!
