Contao version 2.11.RC1 is available. Please do not use beta versions for productional websites! Download the release to check whether your website or custom extension needs adaptation.
Event list and event reader on the same page
Analogous to showing a news archive and news reader on the same page (see 2.11.beta1), you can now also combine an event list and event reader on a single page.
Make ListView output a table
You can now make the ListView output the rows as table using the "showColums" flag.
Embed Google web fonts
A new field in the page layout allows you to easily embed Google web fonts adding an external style sheet to the page. If you need alternative ways of embedding the fonts or support for other web fonts provider, there is a suitable extension (Webfontloader) in the extension repository.
Advanced image crop modes
The "exact format" variant (crop image) has been enhanced, so you can define whether to preserve the left, center or right part of a landscape image or the top, middle or bottom part of a portrait image. Also see the explanation in the back end.
Forced password change
When you create a new password for a back end user, you can now force him to change it upon the next login. The user will be redirected to a corresponding page and can only continue to work in the back end after the password has been changed.
All plugins up to date
All third-party plugins have been updated to their latest version.
