Contao 4.2.0 is available
by Leo Feyer
Contao version 4.2.0 is available. The feature release includes a tree view filter, a file search, content elements for YouTube and Vimeo videos and improved insert tag and sub-palette support. Also, the back end theme has been modernized.
Back end theme
The back end theme has been reworked and the design has been modernized. Additionally, all icons have been replaced with SVG icons, which render a lot better on high-resolution monitors.
Tree view filter
The tree view filter allows to filter records within a tree structure such as the site structure or the file manager.
The file manager and the file picker can now be searched.
If an image has an important part set, a second preview image is shown in the file manager.
Save and edit
The "save and edit" button is now permanently available and not only if a new record is created.
Image size access
Access to image sizes can now be limited in the user settings, so not all users have access to all image sizes.
YouTube and Vimeo
The "YouTube" and "Vimeo" content elements are now embed via iframe to guarantee maximum browser compatibility. The "Vimeo" content element has been added in Contao 4.2.
Recursive insert tags
Insert tags are now replaced recursively instead of only up to the second level, which ensures that even nested insert tags are reliably replaced.
When updating an existing Contao 4.1 installation, you also have to update the files of the standard edition; in particular, the
DoctrineCacheBundle and the
KnpTimeBundle have to be added in the AppKernel.
