    This week's major news event is the release of milestone 6 of Enonic 5. Read more about all the new features.

    What happened this week?

    We have now released 5.0 milestone 6 (5.0.0-M6). This is a tagged development release that is NOT feature complete. 
    It is not intended to be used in production environments and should only be used as a technology preview

    • Initial documentation has been added, we are using Asciidoctor
    • Several new input types; tag, time, date, datetime, geolocation, number
    • Site templates have been removed to reduce complexity
    • Page templates can now be built using WYSIWYG and published with content
    • The form app has been removed, forms (i.e. content types) are now coming directly from modules
    • Dynamic metadata. Add custom steps with custom fields when creating content. As an example, "show in menu" is now optional metadata
    • Standardised interface between Java and Javascript. Build and share functionality in Java with the scripting layer
    • The image component has been separated from templates, look forward to cropping and other features in M7
    • The module app is now using web socket and server events, and is always updated on changes on the server
    • Detailed info about a module is shown when it is selected
    • A format for import and export has been defined
    • Detail page which lists versions and publishing information
