2.0.0-beta Released

Share

We are proud to announce the release of our first beta for the 2.0 version of Xibo. The codename for this version is “Swift”.

Originally discovered on November 27, 1869 by Tempel (the codename for our 1.8 release), the 11P/Tempel–Swift–LINEAR comet was rediscovered by Swift on October 11, 1880, lost and rediscovered again by LINEAR on December 7, 2001.

2.0.0-beta is a should be used for testing only and not be used in production. You can upgrade to this release from 1.8 series.

We have had 4 focus points for 2.0:

  • Improved Layout Design experience
  • Playlists
  • Draft/Published Layouts
  • Database Schema migrations for Upgrades

If you're interested in reading more about these things and what they mean for Xibo, please take a look at our 2.0.0-alpha blog post.

This beta is a CMS only release - Player beta releases will follow in due course and you can use a 1.8 Player against a 2.0.0-beta CMS.

We will leave you with a teaser screenshot of the new Layout Designer!
