Releasing ImpressPages CMS 3.0

Introducing files repository and real time image cropping. From now on you can easily upload and reuse same files over and over anywhere on the system.

Everyone has expected to see ImpressPages 2.7 to be released, but we renamed it to 3.0. If you have custom made widgets that operate with files or images, they might not work after update (read below about file repository).

If you have plugins that operate with images using CRUD you are fine to update. Theme modifications have no influence to the update.

Our policy is to update major version when something becomes incompatible. That will allow everyone to track versions and double check on updates.

File / Image repository

Introduced File / Image repository gives you a new way to reuse any file that has been uploaded earlier. Even if file is not used anymore, its original version still stays in repository for the future.

As it was earlier ImpressPages CMS tracks carefully each file and knows exactly which one could be removed. Therefore, later on we will introduce more tools to cleanup old files automatically or manually depending on your needs.

Image cropping

Now you can use a Reflection service to create thumbnails of your images on the fly. That means you need to care about only the original file in Files repository. All other resized versions of the file can be created dynamically when required and you don't need to track them or take care about cleaning them up. It's all done by the system. As always - automagically!

Nice CMS! I've just downloaded it and I like it! Will you update a 3.x documentation?

Mangirdas

2.x and 3.x documentation doesn't differ a lot. Here it is: http://www.impresspages.org/docs2/

Any doc on what the IP/Ecommerce/classes are for and how they can be used?

Mangirdas

Mangirdas

Those classes will be used to share products / payment methods / etc. between plugins. All that will be uncovered and documented in parallel with shopping cart plugin.

I know there are issues with browser cache. Because it is still using old JS files. Do you experience other issues? Could you please describe them?

I am getting this error

<b>NOTICE </b> Undefined index: images<br /> in /var/www/ip26/ip_cms/modules/standard/content_management/widget/IpImageGallery/IpImageGallery.php on line 29

I've double checked it. I can't reproduce your problem. I would suggest to do following things:
1. Replace all ip_cms and ip_libs folders on your server with freshly downloaded ones
2. Clear browser cache

If that doesn't help, compress your database and files to ZIP archive and send it to us http://www.impresspages.org/cms/about/contact/ or give us FTP access to investigate. But please please try above steps before passing it to us.
