Following on from our uComponents v4.0.0
release, and including recent bug-fixes from uComponents v3.1.3
, we are proud to announce v4.1.0.
What's new in v4.1.0?
- New Data Types:
- New Macro Engines
- Static File Macro Engine
- XSLT Macro Engine
Issues, tickets and workitems
The following features have been implemented/resolved:
This release is not to be confused with the upcoming uComponents v5.0.0
(which will support Umbraco 4.8+)
This release is compatible with versions of Umbraco from 4.6.1 to 4.7.2. For Umbraco 4.8 onwards, please use uComponents v5.0.0
. Due to upcoming changes in our uComponents v5.0.0
release, we envisage our v4.x branch to be short-lived.
If you would like to use uComponents v4.1.0
with Umbraco 4.8+, please read these notes for a workaround solution: http://j.mp/umb48-breaks-ucomponents
Upgrading and breaking changes
This release is generally backwards-compatible with previous releases. Meaning that for most scenarios you can upgrade without any issues.
The main breaking change (or improvement) is the switch from the legacy umbraco.presentation.nodeFactory
namespace/API to the newer umbraco.NodeFactory
. So if you still use the legacy namespace, then you'll need to recompile your code against this release.
All data-types and XSLT extensions will still work as expected.
