Cascade 8.3 is Here!

 

Released on Friday, March 3, Cascade 8.3  introduces reusable WYSIWYG editor configurations that provide popular features, including fine-grained control over the editor's appearance and functionality. The release also includes bug fixes and improvements to the icon set and to task creation.

WYSIWYG Editor Configurations

WYSIWYG feature restrictions, CSS Classes and CSS Files at the System Preference and Site level have been migrated to Editor Configurations. Settings at Group level will be eliminated in favor of Editor Configurations.

Note: As a result, some users will have access to more WYSIWYG features than they had before and fewer CSS classes to choose from. By default, users will see the same set of buttons in the WYSIWYG toolbar as if they had no group restrictions in previous versions of Cascade CMS.

A new Show all features button has been added to the WYSIWYG toolbar, allowing users with the ability to bypass WYSIWYG editor restrictions to see all the buttons and menu items.

WYSIWYG options defined at the Data Definition WYSIWYG field level have been marked as deprecated in order to retain previous functionality and will eventually be replaced by editor configurations.

 Icon Set Changes

We've made a few adjustments to the icon set used within Cascade to use more intuitive icons for various types of assets and common actions. Below is a before/after screenshot illustrating these adjustments:

Task Creation

We've added a few additional areas to create tasks from. You can now create tasks from your "My Content" area.

You can also create them from the "tasks" modal for Pages.
