Submitted By Bryan Ruby September 23, 2010

Jay Gilmore wrote to us the other day. Jay wanted to make sure we were aware that MODx 2.0.2 was released last Friday. Lots of bug fixes and improvements in this one that you might just notice a performance improvement. You can check out Jay's announcement below or at the MODx site.

MODx Revolution 2.0.2 Brings a Little More Speed and Lots of Little Fixes

MODx Revolution 2.0 was officially released nearly 2 months ago and many of you have made the switch from MODx Evolution and others have added it to their toolset. This means many more people using Revolution on a daily basis and this also has given it a real-world workout on production sites. This happily resulted in finding things that needed fixing or improving.

The Revolution 2.0.2 release contains over 80 bugfixes or improvements and here are the highlights:

  • More optimizations to the Manager to improve usability and speed, including faster load times.
  • Manager tree now remembers where you were on refresh so you don't have to keep clicking the tree.
  • Improved Rich Text Editor support, especially in multi-context environments.
  • Improvements Package Management so installing add-ons works correctly and smoothly in most environments.
  • Improvements to image thumbnails and thumbnail caching in the MODx Browser.
  • Template Variables using @bindings now work as they should.
  • Added the ability to tab to the next editable field in System Settings (and other autosaving grids)
  • Fixed issue where fields revert to original values after save1

Revolution is only getting better, so download it now to try it or update your existing Revolution sites.

1 Important Note: Yesterday, September 16th, 2010,  we released MODx Revolution 2.0.1. Shortly after it was released (just several hours) a bug affecting saving resources was found. If you installed Revolution 2.0.1 you should upgrade to 2.0.2 immediately. If you downloaded it but haven't installed it, it would be best to file it in the Trash or send to /dev/null.
