OpenCms 8.0.3 Distribution

With version 8.0.3, 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 8.0.2 release have been fixed.

Main improvements in OpenCms 8.0.3

  • With the introduction of "Function Pages", JSP based dynamic pages can be added with simple drag and drop in the sitemap editor.
  • The sitemap editor's improved "Create Page" dialog offers a wider choice of types distinguishing "Container Pages", "Type Pages" and "Function Pages".
  • It is now also possible to select the page model when using the sitemap editor's context menu option "Create Sub-Page".
  • The available container page models can be accessed for editing directly from the "Create Page" dialog in the sitemap editor.
  • The sitemap editor executes the "Show Page" action if the page icon in the sitemap is clicked.
  • JSP function elements can now have multiple formatters to be used in different containers.
  • The element option bar displays a "Resource is currently locked" icon if an element is currently edited by another user.
  • The content galleries have been improved with a text search field to directly search for "Galleries" and "Categories".

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