We've now released the latest version of the SilverStripe framework, version 3.1.6. You can download this straight away from our downloads page.
What's new in this version
It's been more than three months since our last stable release, but in that time we have reviewed and fixed a large number of usability issues and bugs, with 36 resolved tickets in 3.1.6, and a small number of new features.
We've added a new "Published pages" filter in the CMS, which allows content editors to get a quick look at what the live sitetree currently looks like.
We've also made debugging stuff in the CLI a little bit more attractive. Where Debug::dump() once spat out HTML in every context, we've now added CLI friendly formatting with colour coordination!
If you are using composer, upgrading is pretty simple. If you are linking to the 3.1.*-dev branch, you likely already have the update from the main branch, but if not a “composer update” will do the job.
If you are linked to a 3.1.* tag or development branch then update your composer.json as below.
You can create a new web project to try out using our composer web installer
composer create-project silverstripe/installer ./webroot 3.1.6
