OpenCms 8.0.2 Distribution

With version 8.0.2, many important and useful additional features and improvements have been added to the OpenCms 8 core system and a number of issues that persisted in the 8.0.1 release have been fixed.

Main improvements in OpenCms 8.0.2

  • It's now possible to easily enable drag & drop for any existing JSP. Just create a reference to the JSP with the new ADE resource type "Dynamic Function".
  • Refined element permissions for ADE now support Elements dragable by everyone, but editable only with special permissions.
  • The sitemap editor now displays status information such as title and VFS location above the currently edited sitemap and features a "go to the parent sitemap" option in the toolbar.
  • Group containers now have a "Break Up" option which removes the group and places all elements individually on currently edited page, making it easier to create pages with slightly different configurations.
  • If a content is previewed in the ADE content gallery, it can now directly be dragged & dropped from the content preview to the current page.
  • The legacy direct edit provider for pages using "old" templates now allows to open the "Property" dialog to edit the page properties in direct edit mode.
  • Significantly improved sitemap configuration options make it much easier to create sophisticated special configurations.
  • Improved SEO refined naming schema for automatically created resources.

Please check out the release notes for further details of the changes in this release.
