ImpressCMS 2.0 Alpha 8 is available

ImpressCMS 2.0 alpha 8 is now available!

This software is still in development, so we do not recommend running it on a production site. Consider setting up a test environment to play with the new version.

You can test this new version in 2 ways:

  • Download the alpha from here (be sure to read the installation instructions)
  • Or spin up a new, pre-configured docker instance

ImpressCMS 2.0 is nearly ready to go to beta release and we need your help to get there. Take the system for a spin and report any bugs in the Github issue tracker, so we can fix them.

A new default theme : welcome Core

ImpressCMS 2.0 alpha 8 introduces the core theme, a bootstrap-based theme that has been waiting to see some actions for some time now.

For developers

  • PHP 7.3 compatibility
  • Database migrations
  • Better PSR-4 definitions for core classes
  • moving to Aura.SQL for database support
  • Bootstrap upgraded to 3.4.1
  • now using .env library for environment variable handling
  • moving multiple external libraries from inclusion in the core to inclusion via composer
