Release notes

Release: 5.8 - Version: 20210413-05
Version: 20210413-05
  • Parser: In the praser, the 'line' element (created by 4 dashes ----) has been revised and the distances or returns to it are displayed correctly (new regex).
  • Parser: The Toc-ID (ID for the automatically generated table of contents) was set too often and could therefore be found several times in the source code. The error is now fixed and only one Toc-ID is displayed per page.
  • Parser: Fixed HTML error in the smileys.
Version: 20210410-01
  • Microsoft's channel9 videos work again on the detail pages. The display error is fixed.
  • Internal: Migrated the overview 'Recent articles (last 90 days)' under /content/ to our new framework (incl. English version).
Version: 20210409-05
  • Internal: Migrated our release notes to the new framework.
  • Internal: Migrated our profil page to the new framework.
  • Took out the canonical URL from the error pages. This apparently confuses the search engines. Bing notes that.
Version: 20210408-08
  • Various CSS fixes for the profile and RSS view.
  • If the plus sign was set in the header text formatting but there was no header, an empty HTML header was created. The error is fixed now.
  • The headers in the text formatting have been renumbered internally. The title of an article is always automatically the h1 header. Therefore all further headers are incremented by one. In the article, the first header (one plus sign) then starts at h2. The second header (two plus signs) then starts at h3 and so on. So our pages have a correct header structure again. Use the header formatting for your headlines!
  • To make the source code of an article more readable in the editor, we have reduced the automatic spacing of header headings and code blocks. I.e. if you want to have a distance between the elements, you can control this yourself with Return. Possl is an adjustment of existing articles necessary, so that the distances are correct again. I think, in the long run, that it is better if the user controls the spacing in his article himself. It also makes the text in the editor by the return spacing much more readable.
  • The automatically generated table of contents via [[toc]] has been revised and visually improved.
  • Updated the rights management for moderators. Moderators are now no longer limited to individual topic tags. They can edit all articles and comments in all topic tags.
  • Profile view: moderators info updated.
  • Internal: Complete user rights management replaced. Unfortunately, I had to adapt every file that has to do with rights management. I hope I did not make any mistakes. If something does not work as it should, please send an internal message. Thanks!

  • In the member profile we have generally removed the list view. Those who want a list view of their content can use the dashboard in the member menu. The list view was very rarely used.
  • Job offers do not appear in the profile for the time being. This has something to do with the database conversion MySQL->ArangoDB. We will revise the profiles in the future and add a new job overview to the profile after the DB conversion.
  • The print output of job offers is now realized via CSS @print and is no longer an extra print page.
