Sulu Release 1.6.45, 2.3.12, 2.4.3 & 2.5.0-alpha1

It doesn't happen often, but we released four new versions of Sulu this week! The releases include the latest patch versions of 2.3 and 2.4, bugfixes for 1.6, and the first alpha release of 2.5.

A lot of community fixes

The changelogs for 2.3.12 and 2.4.3 show that there are fixes by a lot of different contributors from our beloved community. A big thank you to all who are contributing code to Sulu. 

Thank you also to those who add or fix something in the Sulu Docs Repository - these important non-code contributions help a lot of people. If you notice something missing in our docs, let us know. Even discussions in issues can help other developers.

Reenable Doctrine cache for stage environment

We accidentally disabled the cache for the stage environment in sulu/skeleton in 2.4.1. This happened when we upgraded the skeleton with the latest Symfony changes. So all projects created between 2.4.1 and now should have a look at their config/packages/doctrine.yaml file and apply the following fix:

Versions installed before 2.4.1 already have it enabled in another config/packages/stage/doctrine.yaml and are not required to do this change.

Database Relation fixed

The shows a lot of database changes for 2.3.12 and 2.4.3. Don't worry - they look more complicated than they are. We added DELETE CASCADE to our many-to-many relations. This fixes issues where, for example, you could not remove a tag when it was referenced in an account. 

A big thank you to ymc-siwi for contributing this fix.

2.5.0-alpha1 released

We released the first version of our upcoming 2.5 release. We are happy for you to start testing it and give us feedback. Especially if you are developing bundles — you'll want to make sure they are compatible with Sulu 2.5 when it is officially released. Keep an eye on the Release 2.5 Milestone on GitHub to stay up-to-date.

Some really nice features are coming in 2.5 – we will write about them in the official release blog of 2.5.

What's coming next?

Sulu 2.5 is still in development - not all features have been implemented. We are targeting those and hopefully we can soon create the first release candidate for Sulu 2.5. 

As always, we are happy to hear your feedback about newly released features and bug fixes. Feel free to create an issue or a discussion on GitHub for bugs and feature requests. You can also contact us via Slack or our website anytime.
