Software Update: Bolt 2.1.0

Bolt is an open source content management system and is in some ways comparable to programs such as WordPress and Drupal. Bolt is easy to use, for both installation and management, and is optimized for both desktop and mobile environments. It is built around the frameworks of Silex and Symfony, and has several good looking html templates that work with Twig are adaptable. Version 2.1.0 of Bolt has just been released and the release notes for that release can be found below.

Bolt 2.1.0 released.

After a short beta period, we’ve released Bolt 2.1.0. In the past two months since Bolt 2.0, we’ve been focusing on the stability and maintainability of Bolt, to further improve the quality of our codebase, looking forward to future improvements and enhancements.

As such, the ‘2.1’ release will bring much less changes in functionality than 2.0 did, but under the hood, a lot has been changed. Since Bolt 2.0.0, we’ve made 2500 commits to our Github repository.

That said, some of the bigger changes in the 2.1.0 release are:

  • Updated: PHPUnit now covers the complete codebase.
  • Updated: Extensions interface had major overhaul and now uses the Composer API more extensively and provides better error handling for AJAX calls.
  • Update: Bolt’s custom logging provider has been replaced with Monolog
  • Added: A lot of work had been done on select-fields, to allow more flexible selections from other contenttypes.
  • Fixed: No more unwanted  s in CKeditor.
  • Added: Allow for https:// protocol in canonical setting in config.yml.
  • For a full list of changes, see the Changelog on GitHub
