To conclude a sprint, we create videos highlighting all major new features and notable changes we’ve worked on. Here are the latest videos, one for each of our three development teams. They quickly show you what has changed in the just released Alpha 2 version of Magnolia 5.
The Workflow team has focused on a commands refactoring and has brought back basic activation. Next on their task list is the implementation of a full 4-eye workflow using the newly integrated jBPM engine and our new UI.
The DAM team realizing Magnolia’s new Digital Asset Management has worked on the DAM API a lot during this sprint. They’ve also finalized our support for several metadata standards, of which we intend to implement Simple Dublin Core first. And finally, the team has added video support both to the DAM and the Assets app.
The AdminCentral team has ported our code base to the just released Vaadin 7 and has also upgraded to CK Editor to version 4 and mgwt to 1.2 at the same time. A significant effort has also gone in adjusting the visual appearance of our new UI, incorporating a series of changes resulting from several design reviews we’ve conducted during the last sprint.
