2.6.1 was released today. It contains many bug fixes to MODX Revolution, including some introduced by a large number of enhancements included in the monumental 2.6 release.
You can find all the changes in the changelog, but we’ve created a list with highlights for you:
If you haven’t upgraded to MODX Revolution 2.6.x yet, learn more from its original release announcement.
Revolution 2.5.2 contained critical security enhancements, and if you are not yet running 2.5.2 or higher, you should upgrade to 2.6.1 now. See below for more info.
We cannot stress the importance of diligently upgrading to the latest version of MODX enough. While no software is 100% secure, powering your site with the most current version usually helps protect you from hackers that rely on exploiting outdated software. If you’re not sure what version of MODX Revolution you’re running, log into your website Manager. If the version number doesn’t appear in the top left-hand corner of the Manager, go to Manage>Reports>System Info.
We would like to thank all of the following contributors: Fabian Christen, Mark Hamstra, Thomas Jakobi, Lars Bratke, Jason Coward, Jan Peca, Mat Dave Jones, Thomas Gautvedt, and Roel Zeilstra. Your contributions made this release happen!
