tt_news 3.0.0 released
After 1 year 8 months and 10 days - of hard work ;-)
finally it became true:
A few minutes ago I uploaded tt_news version 3.0 to TER. Check it out!
tt_news 3.0 highlights:
- New backend module to manage news and categories
- FE plugin changes:
- Many new configuration possibilities by enabling "OptionSplit" for almost all parameters for the tt_news plugin
- New display modes (CODEs) and template parts
- Build-in processing of generic markers (thanks to Ringer Gerorg ;-) )
- Easy update: new updater script which fixes the most common migration problems
- Serious speed improvements: core refactoring and internal caching of processing intensive values
- Improved usability: reorganized constant editor options, plugin flexform and news record form.
and tons of other fixes and improvements
for a full list of all changes have a look at the changelog:
(tt_news 2.5.2 was released on 2008-03-17. so the last 600 lines in the changelog are about tt_news 3.0)
Due to excessive core work I did not yet have the time to rework the complete tt_news manual and CSH until now, and so I compiled all informations about changes and new features in tt_news 3.0 in a seperate document (tt_news_3.0_changes.sxw) which will be delivered with the extension and which you can download here:
If you find bugs in the new version please report them to project "tx_ttnews" at http://bugs.typo3.org .
