Notable Changes Since v1.7.0 LTS

eZ Platform

User Interface

  • In Universal Discovery Widget (UDW) the browse view now uses a completely new browser widget, which replaces Treeview. This solves limitations on how many items you can browse for, and provides a more intuitive user experience.

  • Improvements in the Online Editor:
    • You now have the ability to rearrange elements in the editor by moving them up and down.
    • You can now add links to internal content items in the Online Editor, decide in which tab the link should open, and set link title:
  • Improvements to the Sub-Items view of a content item: You can now sort content items by clicking column headings

  • The main titles of the ContentTypeView now expand and retract with an accordion function
  • Updated and added icons for the Admin Interface
  • The whole interface of PlatformUI is now translatable using Crowdin, including in-context translation where you can navigate the interface while translating. A glossary has been established to aid in unified usage of terminology throughout. Contributions welcome!

Under the Hood

  • New opt-in approach to HttpCache to improve usability as well as performance by means of:
    • Cache multi-tagging: allowing you to tag pages with a path, location, type, parent, etc. so the repository can clear cache in a more targeted, accurate, and flexible way, getting rid of any "clear all" situations on complex operations.
    • For Varnish this uses xkey instead of BAN, enabling greater performance by allowing you to control grace time.
    • This also places HttpCache in a separate repo, allowing it to grow independently: see
  • New content/publish policy to be able to configure content/edit rights independently from publish rights
  • Community-provided translations of the user interface may be imported individually to conserve resources
  • Replaced deprecated templating helper assets with assets packages service
  • Localization of handlebar templates
  • Also part of v1.7.1 from the end of January:
    • Solr: Solving last issues in UI hindering relative ranking of search results from working properly
    • API: Respect defaultAlwaysAvailable setting on newContentCreateStruct solving issues with for instance Kaliop Migrations bundle use
    • Landing pages: Better support for wider range of multi-site setups
    • Online Editor: Ability to change a paragraph to header and back
