The Week in Review: eZ Platform 2.3 Sneak Peek, Slack Changes and More
This week's news in the eZ ecosystem: a sneak peek into Form Builder, small changes made on our Community Slack, a reminder to help us translate eZ Platform and more.
How to create forms with the new Form Builder
In an earlier sneak peek, Amit Golan Gutin, Product Marketing Manager at eZ, introduced improvements around scheduling changes on your website. This week Amit provides an insight into the new Form Builder which will also be part of eZ Platform 2.3.
"eZ Platform v2.3 is a mere two weeks away and is expected to reintroduce many useful features that were missing in the previous release. One of those prominent features is the form builder. The form builder will allow users to easily create, manage and reuse forms anywhere on their website. One of our goals was also to continue improving the editorial experience by enabling users to easily edit forms."

Slack Channels Archived and Renamed
This week several unused channels on our Community Slack Workspace have been archived. Some channels were renamed, for instance #ezstudio-use to #ezplatform-enterprise and #i18n to #ezplatform-i18n. Finally, missing or incomplete channel Topics and Use descriptions were also corrected.
Reminder: Help us Translate eZ Platform
eZ Platform 2.3 will be released at the end of this month. If you are using eZ Platform in a multilingual environment, now would be the time to join our translation effort. Get your own language ready and shipped with 2.3!
We have setup a server running the demo, based on the latest version of eZ Platform. This server is shared with the public and enables in-context translation. All you need is an account on Crowdin.com and follow the tutorial shared here.
