Squiz CMS Patch 11818 Released02 Jul
A new update for Squiz CMS has been made available for download today as a VM image on the Squiz CMS Download Page. You can also use your existing product's automatic update procedures to update your existing system.
This latest release of Squiz CMS focuses on improving both back-end and front-end performance to the system. Most notable of these improvements is the modification of the way Squiz CMS handles concurrent processing, such as the loading of images. These modifications increase the number of processes that the system can manage at once, potentially providing significant improvements to the loading of pages where concurrency was previously an issue.
As a part of these modifications, Squiz CMS now allows users to browse public sites without the need of session cookies. If a published site is public, Squiz CMS will not send any session cookies until required (e.g. the user logs in). This is also supported on sites with multiple contexts. Please note that this change does not affect cookies sent by 3rd party applications, such as Google Analytics. This modification adds to the improvements to concurrency while also addressing recent global privacy concerns with the storage and use of user's personal information on the internet.
Other improvements include the rate of which CSS loads in both Preview and Edit modes. With a combined improvement of both the front-end and back-end performance, Squiz CMS's content editing experience is faster and more efficient than it has ever been.
Apart from the noted performance improvements, this release also introduces the ability to create aliases on __data URLs (useful during Matrix to CMS system migrations), as well as the ability to apply design to 404 Not Found pages. This patch also includes 30 bug fixes.
