Release notes for Magnolia CMS 6.2.5

LTS release • Delivered on November 29, 2020 • Changelog: 20195

Magnolia CMS 6.2.5 is a bug-fixing release. Details are covered in the sections below.

Shortly after releasing Magnolia 6.2.4, we discovered two serious issues. This is why we decided to release Magnolia 6.2.5 earlier than planned. Please upgrade to 6.2.5. We apologise for the inconvenience. The two issues are MGNLREST-289 and MGNLUI-6418

Notable bug fixes

  • If Magnolia 6.2.4 was accessed without a context path, asset thumbnails in the Assets app were missing in the Safari browser and obstructing asset names in other browsers (MGNLUI-6418).

  • Reference resolvers failed to create correct asset links in REST responses (MGNLREST-289).

Third-party library updates

  • commons-lang3 updated to 3.11 (BUILD-415).

  • deeplearning4j updated to 1.0.0-beta7 (BUILD-392).

Known issues

If you are upgrading from an earlier version, read the Upgrading to Magnolia page first and check the Known issues page.

Documentation screenshot updates

Some of the screenshots in the documentation still show the legacy Magnolia 5 UI. Please bear with us as we work to update them.
