MODX Revolution 2.2.5 has recently been released and includes over 150 commits designed to provide a number of fixes and improvements to the content management system. Fixes and improvements of note include improved Media Source function, Caching enhancements and a handling to prevent blank pages occurring on some older hosting environments.
The Media Source is a feature in MODX Revolution, where one can specify the "source" of media in their MODX installation. A source can be many types - from the file system itself, to an Amazon S3 bucket, to a Flickr album. MODX provides two source types with the core installation: the file system and Amazon S3 bucket integration. Other sources can be made by creating Media Source Drivers, or by downloading them from Package Management.
Some of the highlights to the changes in Revolution 2.2.5 release include:
