The Week in Review: eZ Platform 2.4, Season Greetings and More
This week's news in the eZ ecosystem: eZ Platform 2.4 released, experimental package for GraphQL support and more.
Everyone at eZ wishes you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! Thank you for being part of our ecosystem. Together we make great things happen.
2018 has been a great year as we continued with a steady pace of eZ Platform releases, reaching near feature parity with eZ Publish. More exciting projects and events are on the horizon, the first one being our Partner event in Malaga, Spain. We hope to see you there in 2019!
Winter Release: eZ Platform v2.4
The winter release of eZ Platform v2.4 has arrived! This release introduces many exciting new features, including Editorial Workflow, Form Block, Rich Text Block, as well as improvements to the Online Editor and much more.
And just as a reminder (in case you missed it), this v2.4 release is a fast track release and not a long-term supported (LTS) release. The LTS release for version 2 is expected for later. To learn more about this change, check out this blogpost, eZ Platform v2.4 update.
Read the full announcement by Amit Golan-Gutin, Product Marketing Manager at eZ Systems.
You can download the release on ezplatform.com, or update your installation through composer. Release notes are available on GitHub, for the open source and enterprise edition. Full release notes are also available on our documentation site.
Experimental package for GraphQL support
In this article, Bertrand Dunogier (Technical product manager at eZ), writes about the experimental package bringing GraphQL support to eZ Platform.
"GraphQL, designed by Facebook, is foreseen as one of the key technologies for next year and is becoming a cornerstone of the web. In our domain, Web Content Management, it surely is yet a new major step forward for decoupled or headless CMS. In this video, you will discover how it was implemented for eZ Platform, and how to start using it today."
