2. CMS Builder 3.09 released

CMS Builder v3.09. Here's what's new:

PHP 7 Support - PHP 7 dropped support for the old mysql php extension so we've migrated everything to use the new improved mysqli extension. Supports PHP 7 but only requires PHP 5.6+

For sites with older custom code that uses the mysql extension, there's a new option under: Admin > General > Advanced > Enable MySQL Legacy Support.

New Features:

  • Added support for PHP 7 (switched from mysql to mysqli libraries)
  • MySQL Legacy Support: Can be enabled with checkbox under: Admin > General > Advanced
  • MySQL Legacy Support: (automatically enabled when upgrading from earlier versions)
  • WYSIWYG: Updated TinyMCE from v4.4.3 to v4.6.0 (Released 2017-05-04)
  • Backup & Restore: Backup files can now be downloaded directly from the admin menu.
  • Section Editors: Added more menu icons.
