Finally it’s time to give word about some new developments - in its true sense. In the last couple of months I was working on Pico CMS for Nextcloud v1.0.0 - something between a total refactoring and a partial rewrite from scratch. Anyways, we finally reached to the app’s first stable release!
Pico CMS for Nextcloud v1.0.0 solves all known (at least to me) major issues with the
cms_pico app. From now on it will be officially supported by Pico (Hi everyone, I’m Pico’s lead developer ). @Cult did an amazing job with
cms_pico - but priorities change, so it’s about time to help him out…
Pico CMS for Nextcloud utilizes Pico 2.1
Pico CMS for Nextcloud v1.0.0 utilizes the brand-new stable Pico v2.1.0. Even though Pico 2.1 is just a minor release, its changes are pretty heavy compared to Pico 2.0. But all these changes pale in comparison with the fact that
cms_pico v0.9.8 utilized Pico 1.0 before - so this is no minor update for Pico CMS for Nextcloud!
Are you running
cms_pico v0.9.8 right now? This update yields massive, potentially backwards-incompatible changes if you’re using custom plugins or themes (you very likely do)! Check out both Pico 2.0’s upgrade page as well as Pico 2.1’s upgrade page before upgrading Pico CMS for Nextcloud. If you didn’t try the betas (beta thread), we highly recommend you to test the new release before pushing the update to production - you’ll definitely need to change a few bits
Since the changes are pretty heavy for Pico CMS for Nextcloud it might take some time until you see the app in your language again. Right now we support German and English localization only. We’ll release new versions of Pico CMS for Nextcloud as soon as there are considerable l10n updates. You want to contribute a translation? Head over to Transifex. A big thank you to all translators out there!
As you know Pico CMS for Nextcloud v1.0.0 is basically a rewrite from scratch. If you’re a developer and want to check out the code changes, simply compare
v1.0.0 - it’s a massive changeset, the pull request itself consists of 238 commits with 14,801 added, 5,669 removed and 20,470 lines of code in 179 files. This is huge!
Even though the first stable version of Pico CMS for Nextcloud is finally here, we’re still looking forward to your feedback and reviews! Thank you!
