The Xibo Team have been hard at work over the last year to enhance and improve the successful 1.4 series of Xibo.

  • A new manual
  • A new HTML 5 preview in the CMS
  • A theme engine for the CMS, along with a new default theme
  • A new file upload tool for uploading multiple files at the same time
  • A CSV importer for DataSets
  • Ticker based DataSets and improvements to the features on Ticker Items
  • An updated text editor
  • Embed a simple Clock or Date using the Text Media Items
  • General improvements to the presentation in the CMS
  • Started to switch to PDO for future support on other databases
  • CMS support for Transitions in the Ubuntu Client
  • Many bug fixes
  • and much more!
