Pimcore 6.8 - The Best Improvements & New Features
Editable Dialog Box
Areablocks now have an all-new configuration feature that will replace the legacy "edit.php" and provide much more flexibility to provide additional configuration options to area blocks. The editable dialog is a configurable editing interface where you can use all supported editables in a structured layout in the current brick context. Learn more
Support for Twig in Emails and Web2Print Documents
Support for Twig in Emails and Web2Print Documents for placeholders and other stuff. Will replace the old placeholder implementation with Pimcore 7. Learn more
Cache Performance Improvements
Some technical stuff, but will result in significant performance improvements and also resolved a couple of problems when having very complex data object structures. Learn more
Copy & Rename for Pricing Rules
Added copy & rename functionality to the pricing rules panel. Learn more
All Listing Classes are now implementing Countable Interface
Again some technical stuff, but still worth mentioning. Learn more
Allow Tree Sorting in Descending Order
From now on you can sort the children in Pimcore backend trees in as- and descending order.
Quite a long list of deprecations was added to functionalities that are going to be removed in the next major version, eg.:
- QR Codes
- Zend Query Builder (use doctrine query builder instead)
- Tag & Snippet Management (use external tag managers instead)
- PHP templating engine (use twig instead)
The complete list can be seen here.
