SilverStripe releases stable versions of CMS and Framework 3
Posted on 29-Jun-2012 11:49. | Tags Filed under: News.



SilverStripe 3.0.0 released the latest version of their open source content management system today, offering a powerful framework and a striking user interface in the back end.

The latest version boasts a modern and clean UI with a lot of under the hood improvements. Extensive user testing led to major interface improvements in the back end. Media insertion works easy via ĎDrag and Dropí and URL embed. With the release of SilverStripe 3 comes the SilverStripe Framework, which is now a separate tool to build applications and sites that donít require a CMS.

A new list-view for page editing helps to structure site parts that have a lot of content and sub sites, such as the blog, in a user friendly way without rearranging the site tree. To embed media from YouTube, Flickr, Vimeo and many other sites, the administrator simply inserts the item's URL and the CMS will import it automatically.

The new version separated the framework from the CMS, which is now usable as its own entity, making it an important tool for all developers who want to create more powerful web applications. The data model layer has been rewritten to allow better performance through lazy loaded lists and expressiveness through chainable commands.

Many of developer API calls have been replaced, improved or newly created. Among the new APIís is GridField, which allows users to manage and display complex data in easy to use tables.

SilverStripe 3.0.0 now works with PHP 5.3+ in order to take advantage of all the PHP 5.3 features, notably namespace support. It also comes with a responsive default theme provided by the winner of the SilverStripe Theme Contest.

The latest SilverStripe generation CMS is a milestone for the company and their open source community. This version sets the ground for further changes and improvements.
