New Javascript Models module version released

Shortly before Magnolia CMS 6.2.29, we released version 2.0 of the Javascript Models module, which uses GraalVM. Use this module version with JDK 11 and higher.

Javascript Models 1.2 uses Nashorn, which was deprecated in JDK 11 and removed in JDK 15.

Other improvements

  • MGNLUI-7739 System properties and non string values could use EQUALS instead of LIKE in JCR query

  • MGNLUI-7741 Configurable timeout to send text change events from server

Bug fixes

Highly requested

  • MAGNOLIA-8726 Setting magnolia.jcr.query.logging.thresholdMs might result in invalid queries

  • MAGNOLIA-8785 Page status not modified when editing component variants

  • PAGES-970 Editing or creating a new component jumps to the top of the page sometimes

  • PUBLISHING-179 Opening Publishing Tools app on public fails with an error

  • MGNLDAM-1100 String array fields are not escaped


  • MAGNOLIA-8727 The commons-betwixt library was replaced by jackson-dataformat-xml.

    Consequently, the implementation of ModuleDefinitionReader was changed from BetwixtModuleDefinitionReader to JacksonModuleDefinitionReader.

    Using BetwixtModuleDefinitionReader explicitly?

    If you use BetwixtModuleDefinitionReader explicitly, (e.g., in your tests), you have two options:

    1. Replace usages of BetwixtModuleDefinitionReader with JacksonModuleDefinitionReader.

    2. Add the magnolia-core-compatibility dependency to your POM file:

  • MAGNOLIA-8673 Improve behavior related to user enumeration

  • MGNLMAIL-152 Commons-beanutils dragging in commons-collections
