It’s been a while since you haven’t heard of us, and we first wanted to wish you a happy new year. As 2013 is starting, we’re happy to release Typo 6.1.2, the second of the Remi Ochlik series, nammed after a French photographer who was killed in Syria a few days after getting a World Press Photo, the most prestigious award for photojournalists.
This new Typo release comes with a major security bugfix that affects every Ruby on Rails version so far, and make your hosting vulnerable. If you’ve been using a prior Typo version, then it’s time for you to upgrade as soon as possible. This is mission critical, no kidding.
New feature and improvements
Typo 6.1.2 is the first one to run out of the box on a Heroku instance. You just need to change the config/storage.yml file to switch to Amazon S3. This will make Typo deployment much more easier, and we plan to make it even more simple in the next few months.
Typo’s been translated in a few more language, we’re happy to welcome the Norvegian and Simple Chinese versions. Other translations have been improved as well.
The possibility of Typo sidebar plugins have been extended with the possibility to add new settings on existing plugins without reloading them.
This version also provides the usual bug fixes:
A bug in the article list within the admin has been fixed. Selecting “all articles” would not display drafts.
Some usability issues regarding the menu highlight have also been fixed.
Solves an issue where the SEO titles would not be saved when submitting the form.
Autosave when using the visual editor has also been saved.
