7.8.8 release notes

March 26, 2014

We are happy to announce the availability of new maintenance version of Hippo-CMS 7.8.8. This update brings some improvements and loads of bug fixes; below you can find all the fixes as part of this release. You can bootstrap new projects using archetype 1.07.08.

These new versions of the dependencies have been available for a while, now they are bundled in this release. If the project has been using these dependencies via project pom file, than remove while using this maintenance release. We encourage all projects to remain on the regular maintenance release. Using a tagged artifact that is not yet part of a maintenance release should only be done if there is a specific reason and only after testing in your specific project setup.

Also we are continuously improving the product by fixing issues and backporting improvements and features. You are welcome to take sneak preview on issues fixed in these new tags.
