We are happy to announce the immediate availability of BEdita 3.7.0 corylus*.

All 3.6.0 instances should be upgraded to this last stable version. For this version a lot of work has been done under the hood so you wouldn't see many cosmetic changes.

Main changes are:

  • fix XSS vulnerability adding contents in Publications module #755. Many thanks to Arjun from Cyber Security Works Pvt Ltd

  • improved REST API adding several functionality like
    - get collection of objects and posters by comma separated id #765#767
    - filter objects by URL query string #744
    - ability to customize the URL query string supported for every endpoint
    - show all custom properties also those not populated #763
    -  saving custom properties #761
    - ability to request objects related embedded in main objects data #768 

  • improved the calendar view in Events module

  • if you need to handle events' dates before 1000 AD now you can #670
    If date_items is empty simply alter table changing start_date and end_date to BIGINT. If you have data in date_items you need to follow the instructions you can see launching the shell script ./cake.sh migration_date_items help

  • added Redis support for caching #746

  • easily use of avatars via Gravatar service with the new Gravatar helper #766

As usual all changes are listed in the changelog
