Releasing Wolf CMS 0.7.8

Hi there!

We’ve just released version 0.7.8 of Wolf CMS. This release has a number of fixes for bugs and should enhance stability and security. It also has the latest version of the translations that were available at our Transifex project at the time of release.

Remember, all of our translations are available at our Transifex.com project page. You can get the bleeding edge of translations there.

Where to get it

Just go to our download page or download the files from the “master” branch in GitHub.

Advice and Upgrade Notes

  • Make sure to read docs/updating.txt in the download!
  • If you are having problems after upgrading, make sure to disable all plugins and then re-enable each plugin one by one to make sure the problem isn’t being caused by a plugin.
  • If you see “MISSING_DEFAULT_STRING”, it means that no “translation” was found for a string in en-message.php This is most likely caused by either a missing translation string or a missing en-message.php file for a plugin. Please check with your plugin’s authors if they have included that translation file or add it yourself.
  • If you have references to “$this->url” or “$this->uri()” in your navigation related code, you should probably change it into “$this->path()”. That should fix potential problems with highlighting the active page in your menu for example.
