I have been very quiet with updates over the last weeks, but behind the scenes a lot has happened. Originally I had planned to release smaller updates more often, but now things turned out a bit differently and I decided that we are making an instant jump from 2.0.6 to 2.1. This bigger step means that we need to do some more testing and that there will be a small beta starting today.
You can find all the changes in this massive changelog on Github: https://gist.github.com/bastianallgeier/061ddd007d5985ae28ca
As you can see there are LOTS of new things and still not everything is in there, which I wanted to have in 2.1. But please be assured that 2.2 is near and more stuff is coming soon
I also want to use this chance to say a HUGE thank you to @distantnative who helped me out over the last weeks and is about to become a more regular/offical contributor to the core of Kirby, which is super awesome.
So if you’d like to help us test 2.1 please just grab the latest versions from the develop branches of the kirby, toolkit and panel repos and let us know how you like it.
The most simple way to get started is again with the starterkit or with the plainkit:
git clone -b develop --recursive https://github.com/getkirby/starterkit.git
git clone -b develop --recursive https://github.com/getkirby/plainkit.git
You can also use an existing Kirby installation and checkout the develop branches for your submodules like this:
git submodule foreach git checkout develop git submodule foreach git pull
or you can grab the nightly build from here: http://download.getkirby.com/nightly and replace your kirby and panel folders if you are not working with Git.
You can submit any feedback here or post issues on Github.
Thanks for your support and happy testing
