Sulu Release 2.4.12 & 2.5.8

We released two new versions of Sulu! 2.4.12 and 2.5.8 provide fixes for current dependency changes and other improvements.

Sulu deprecations changed

Thanks to community member @YetiCGN, all our deprecation messages were changed from @trigger_error to the Symfony-recommended trigger_deprecation method. We used the symfony/deprecation-contracts packages for this. Read about the advantages on its Github repository.

Jackalope issues solved

With some changes in jackalope/doctrine-dbal 1.8.0, the container could end up in a state where it was no longer possible to create pages via the Sulu Admin. Thanks to @dbu, who found out how Symfony creates the specific PHPCR services, we've created and released a workaround by making the PHPCR Session services lazy. If you have run into this Jackalope issue, just update Sulu to the latest version.

Analytics script tag includes changes to HTTPS

One of our partner developer's PRs changed our tracking scripts to force HTTPS for Analytics scripts like Google Tag Manager, Google Analytics, etc. This was changed in favor of a better ranking of Sulu websites Mozilla Observatory Report, which helps to make websites more secure. Thanks go to community member @picturestone for improving the security of Sulu sites.

What is coming next?

Currently, we are not only working on version 2.6, but also continuing to polish some more Bundles. We want to release the SuluCommentBundle soon, and we're planning another bug fix release already for the SuluFormBundle.
