Contao Two Month Review July and August 2021
by Blair Winans – Community
In August we welcomed a new Contao version.
To celebrate the arrival of Contao 4.12, an online session was hosted the day before the release. After a short welcome by Joachim, president of the Contao Association, Andy, core developer, gave a live insight into the new features of Contao and answered questions from the participants. Afterwards, various tables were available in the virtual room to exchange ideas on various topics. The time passed very quickly and the participants could hardly wait for the release of the new version.
In August, three security holes were closed and Contao became even more secure.
