  • The delegate ExtensionsAddToNavigation has been deprecated and will be removed in the next major Symphony release. Extensions are encouraged to implement Extension->fetchNavigation() instead. Extensions that absolutely need to use this delegate (and we'd love to know how your using it if this is the case) can use the NavigationPreRender delegate.
  • Completely removed the deprecated /administration/ context for delegates. Extensions should have completed the transition to /backend/ by now.

New Features

  • #683 - Field->getParameterPoolValue, Field->toggleFieldData and Field->prepareTableData methods are now passed $entry_id
  • #657, #696 - Query optimisation (ORDER BY and JOIN order). An improved ORDER BY algorithm has been added to the Checkbox, Date, Input and Upload fields that may improve performance on large datasets
  • #652 - The version of Symphony that created/updated Event or Datasource's is now stored in the Event/Datasource's version information. Extensions that provide custom Events or Datasources are encouraged to add their own strings, ie. Extension Name 0.1
  • #649 - Added a new configuration setting, session_gc_divisor. This defaults to 10
  • #640 - Four new delegates added, PageTemplatePreEdit, PageTemplatePostEdit, PageTemplatePreCreate and PageTemplatePostCreate

  • Performance improvements for delegate subscription, saving of Textarea fields, Navigation Datasources and general Frontend page rendering.
  • Allow filters and prepopulate to be passed as arrays allowing multiple backend filters
  • The EventPreSaveFilter now gets passed the $entry_id when an Event is editing entries. This will be null on new entries
