Silva 1.4.2 released

Publication date: 4.March.2006, 06:30

14 februari 2006 – Infrae has just released version 1.4.2 of the Silva content management system. This is a bugfix release, in which the following bugs are fixed:

  • Added missing 'is_default' method on SilvaObject, it was already available on Content but some new functionality (closing objects from tab_edit of Container types) made that it was required for other types as well.
  • Kupu now uses frontend.css instead of an almost entire copy.
  • Moved '' out of SilvaDocument to the core to allow using it from other products.

See also HISTORY.txt in the package.
