We just released our latest Fast Track version – Nuxeo Platform 5.9.3. Note that Fast Track versions are only supported until the next FT (Check out this blog post about our release life cycle).
Take a look at the 5.9.3 release notes for the whole story.
The first major feature of this release is the integration of Elasticsearch. It brings greater scalability to the Nuxeo Platform. We use it to index all the documents in your instance. When you install this module, all the common page providers will query Elasticsearch instead of your RDBMS.
Another great addition that comes with 5.9.3 is the Collections type. A Collection is a folder-like document in which you classify existing content. Documents are not actually copied or moved into the collection, it only holds a link to the document in its original location.
If you follow the blog, you also know …
We just released Nuxeo Platform 5.9.2. It’s a Fast Track version. Note that Fast Track versions are only supported until the next FT (Check out this blog post about our release life cycle).
Release 5.9.2 brings UX enhancements to Nuxeo DAM. Nuxeo Drive is now easier to install and upgrade because the installer is signed and the local database upgrade is done automatically. Guillaume added some interesting features to the Select2-based suggestion widgets. You’ll find this particularly useful if you’re a Nuxeo Studio user.
If you’re a developer, you’ll be happy to know that this new version is the first one to be built with Maven3. It can also be run with the JDK …
As we had announced at the Nuxeo World, our priority in 2014 is user experience. Studio is now quite mature in terms of what you can configure with it and deserves improvements in usability. This release is the first one in a series that will address usability. The full release notes are available in the Studio documentation space.
Some customer projects get to be very big, with hundreds of objects. Some workflow definitions are also themselves getting very big, with dozens of nodes and as a consequence, the loading time of the project was getting longer and longer. Anahide took a series of measures for preventing this problem: improved serialization of the project definition on the client side (remember Studio is written in GWT, most of it happens client side), lazy loading of the biggest features (workflow, automation chain, vocabularies), optimization of the vocabularies feature, with a new …
Nuxeo Platform 5.9.1 is out! It’s the first Fast Track release before our next LTS. Take a look at the release notes for the whole story. This new version does not contain many new user-visible features. Instead we focused on the infrastructure, doing some background work to enhance the platform and making it more accessible for developers.
One feature that you must take notice of and try is the Mule ESB connector. Thierry has been working on this for a while with Alain. They came up with a stable connector and a sample/documentation that will help you grasp the potential of this solution.
Another noticeable addition is the iOS SDK. It’s here to help you build iOS applications connected to the Nuxeo Platform through the REST API. It already has several cool features like the blob offline cache.
5.9.1 is also the first Nuxeo Platform release compatible with …
Among the new features available is XML completion for components and extension points. This has been developed by an external contributor, Sun Tan, that some of you may know since he used to work at Nuxeo and now works at Serli. He gave a lightning talk about his contribution during Nuxeo World. Take a look at the video. It’s a great feature. Thanks Sun!
As with most releases of Nuxeo IDE, we have added some new wizards. You can now generate a basic unit test skeleton, or Studio based unit test skeleton. This means that your Studio project will be deployed in your test setup, so you’ll …
Nuxeo Studio 2.15 was officially released last week, and it comes with Nuxeo Platform 5.8. In this version of Studio we expose some of the latest capabilities added in the platform, providing more configurability. This includes:
- DAM widgets are now available in Studio. You can use them in tabs you create: Video story board, video reader, picture web view….
- All Select2.js widgets have been exposed in Studio, with all their options. Select2.js widgets are the suggestion widgets in the platform. You have suggestion widgets in simple selection and multi-selection objects for users (silently replacing previous implementation), directories, documents (silently replacing previous implementation), and there is an advanced one to leverage any operation which returns some correctly formatted JSON, for advanced integration. Those widgets present new interesting options, such as being able to define the NXQL query used inline, or being able to format the value displayed in the
We just released Nuxeo 5.8, the first Long Term Support version made on our new release cycle. This is the version you should use for production now – it will be supported for the next three years. If you want to know what has changed between 5.7.3 and 5.8, please take a look at the release notes. If you want to know what has changed between 5.6 and 5.8, I have merged all the release notes in between those two. And if you want to follow what has changed between each version of Nuxeo, you should take a look at the release notes index.
If you haven’t followed the latest Fast Track releases, our main focus has been to improve our REST API, DAM module, Nuxeo Drive, Workflow engine and UX. Among the new features available since the latest fast track, 5.7.3, is a task resolution tab. …
You may have noticed that we released a new version of Nuxeo Studio this week. For this version, we put the emphasis on improving the existing product based on user feedback, more than on adding new features. There are 5 evolutions/new features, 15 improvements and 19 bug fixes.
Some of the new features in this version include:
A new Tabs widget, compatible with Nuxeo Platform 5.7.3, that enables the display of tabs in the location of your choice. Previously, display options for tabs were limited to matching the default UI. Rendering options will be coming next.
New workflow features available with Nuxeo Platform 5.7.3 have been integrated in Studio: multi-task node, re-assignment support, new workflow events, new automation scripting objects.
Some noteworthy improvements:
Your project name and the feature you are working on are now displayed as the title of your browser tab or window.
Different colors are used
Nuxeo Platform 5.7.3 is out! It’s our third Fast Track release, coming to you roughly 7 weeks after the 5.7.2. Take a look at the release notes for the whole story.
We have used the time we had to dramatically enhance our REST API. We had already introduced the document resource and the business adapter in 5.7.2. With this new release we have added new resources like User, Group, Directory and Automation. It means you can do CRUD operations on them. Take a look at the resource endpoint documentation to understand how to use this. We’ve also added adapters to give you more granularity on this API (bLob, ACLs, operation, page provider…). Here’s an example to make it easier to understand:
@blob will return the file of the document (the one store on the property given by the next URL segment), and chaining it to
@op will call …
Today we released Nuxeo Platform 5.7.2, the second Fast Track version since we launched our new platform release cycles. Take a look at the release notes for the whole story. This version is coming to you roughly six weeks after the 5.7.1.
During this time we’ve been working a lot on the Content Automation APIs. This is the major focus of improvement for this release. We now have a REST API based on content automation that manipulates documents instead of operations. This will make the integration with new UI Frameworks like AngularJS even easier. And what will make this easier still is that you can also manipulate Business Objects (specialized document adapters) through this REST API.
Workflows have been improved a lot too. Now you can embed sub-workflows. This improves user experience and is much DRYer. You can also define escalation rules to trigger a chain of operations …
