As planned on our roadmap we released Pimcore 5.2 last Friday, February 23. It includes many technical improvements and some new features. 50 GitHub issues have been resolved as part of this release. Find a description of some highlights below.

Important notice: This release contains BC breaks in the eCommerce framework: Learn more

More granular debug mode

The Debug Mode is useful if you're developing an application with Pimcore. With debug-mode on, all errors and warnings are displayed directly in the browser. Until now it was possible to restrict the debug mode based on an IP address. With this setting, it was only active for requests from a specific address, like from your agency or software developer.

With the 5.2 release, the possible settings for the debug mode are much more granular. This makes testing your applications easier.

Debug toolbar for personalization

We implemented a debug tool, which works outside the Symfony profiler (therefore also in production environments). The toolbar also features an extensible override system for targeting data.

Support for Google Analytics gtag.js

Google's new tracking script gtag.js unifies the analytics.js/ga.js tracking code and Google Tag Manager. A Migration Guide is available from Google. We added an option, which lets you easily add ga.js and dc.js to a website.

eCommerce pricing for tenants

Pimcore pricing manager now uses the same structure as other services like the order manager. Therefore the pricing manager is now compatible with multiple tenants and each tenant can have its individual pricing scheme. This makes handling different prices for different tenants much more flexible in eCommerce scenarios.
