Upcoming changes

To use custom widgetset compilation in the next release, Magnolia 6.2.45 or later, you’ll need a Vaadin license.


  • MAGNOLIA-9200 Add the renewSession and logout functionality to LoginHandler and support LoginHandlers for LogoutFilter

    The LoginHandler interface has been enriched with session-management and logout hooks to support upcoming greater flexibility with SSO setups and multiple login providers.

    The LoginFilter and LogoutFilter internal logic has been adapted to account for these changes.

  • BLOSSOM-322 Resolve Blossom dialog in template, to render content based on page/component model

  • MAGNOLIA-9321 Configure the list of workspaces to be excluded from Audit Log

  • MGNLDAM-1370 Adding duplicate assets should be easily identifiable

  • MGNLDAM-1389 Improve availability of the "Upload" action in browser view

  • MGNLUI-8760 Configurable DateTimeResolution for DateField

  • PSWDMNGR-10 Password Manager should not depend on the activation key pair

    You must add the magnolia.password.manager.key.location property to your file. This property enables the system to generate the key pair file for the Password Manager.

    The location of this file should typically be the same as where the file is. The location must be both accessible by Magnolia and persisted. If no file is present, the Password Manager can’t create passwords. If the modules/password-manager-core@publicKey value isn’t present in the JCR, the Password Manager can’t decrypt passwords.

    For more information, see the Password Manager module.
