Back to listing

The 10.6.0 release is finally here and brings a raft of bug fixes and improvements including a new super multi-file upload process and support for ImageMagick image processing. As ever, thanks to all our contributers for pushing the code forward and a special thanks to the team at Mitrahsoft for their many contributions in this release.


Multi-upload process

We've completely overhauled the UX for the multi upload process to allow CMS editors to rapidly upload many files at once. Rather than attempt to describe it with screenshots and words, we've created a quick video :)



The new "multi-applications" feature allows developers to create multiple admin application interfaces in the system's backend. Checkout the video below for a better explanation and read the guide to developing multi-applications for an in-depth guide.



You can now configure your Preside applications to use ImageMagick for image processing, rather than the native cfimage tags. This has performance and flexibility benefits. In the admin, head over to System -> Settings -> Asset manager to configure Image Magick settings:
