2. CMS Builder 3.11 released

CMS Builder 3.11 has just been released. Here are some of the new features in CMS Builder 3.11:

  • Unsaved changes warning: when you navigate away from a add/edit form after making changes it warns you
  • Developer Email: we've added a field for this so error reports can go to a separate email and not the default site email
  • Emoji Support: We've switched 4-byte UTF8 (utf8mb4) to support storing of extended charset languages and emojis in database
  • Lastpass Usability: Added workaround for issue where LastPass would automatically fill out username and password fields when modifying accounts
  • Image Uploads: CMYK "print" images are now automatically converted to browser-safe RGB images on upload (instead of just showing an error)
  • Email Delivery: Added tips on the bottom of the Email Settings menu on what to do when emails aren't getting delivered
  • Offline Mode: Switched to storing and caching resources locally to speed up access for offline and limited internet access installations
