Master / Slave Database Connections

After refactoring the database connection layer, Pimcore now supports master/slave connections for clustered MariaDB/MySQL environments. Database Clustering is the process of combining more than one servers or instances connecting a single database. Sometimes one server may not be adequate to manage the amount of data or the number of requests, that is when a Data Cluster is needed. The main reasons for database clustering are its advantages a server receives; Data redundancy, Load balancing, High availability, and lastly, Monitoring and automation. We use this for example for high-load and high-availability B2B and B2C commerce installations of Pimcore on Amazon Aurora DB Clusters. You can learn more about the setup and configuration in our latest Best Practice Article.

Document Language Overview

Provides a quick overview of all existing translated language variants of a certain web page document including all children documents.
This new tool also makes it easier to quickly create additional language variants of your websites.

Redirect Cleanup Button

Performance Improvements

A highly awaited feature for solutions with the most complex product data models, featuring 100s or sometimes even 1000s of attributes and relations. Lazy-loaded relations are now supported within localized fields, field collections and object bricks. This makes the whole admin interface run tremendously smoother and faster when working with lots of data.

More granular Permissions on Custom Reports

It is now possible to restrict Custom Reports to certain users and/or roles.

Improved handling of embedded asset meta-information

In the DAM we added support for videos and additional image formats, using industry standard tool “exiftool” to extract meta information – this means we are now also supporting additional meta-information formats. And we improved the visualization in the admin interface.

Other notable features and improvements

  • Support for data-at-rest encryption (MySQL/MariaDB) on data objects
  • Fixed some XSS vulnerabilities in the admin interface
  • Support for date library Carbon 2

The ensemble

This release was led by Bernhard Rusch, with the help of these fine people. There are 196 contributors with props to the Pimcore project so far. In addition to the new features mentioned above, there have also been many improvements and fixes which are mainly relevant for developers and therefore were not been mentioned above. As always, you can find the full overview directly on GitHub.
