Quintagroup would like to announce that our plone-demo website has been upgraded to the latest Plone version 4.3.

What changed?

There has been quite a few improvements in Plone 4.3 compared to older version. Among the most relevant for content managers and end-users:

  • Enhanced search. No advanced search form anymore. Plain text search now ignores accents.
  • In-Plone theme editor. You can upload your Plone theme as a .zip file and edit the theme with the ACE editor.
  • Dexterity replaced Archetypes. You define custom content types through the web, so no programming experience is needed.
  • Improved RSS Syndication. There’s a syndication control panel to configure syndication. Writing newsfeeds is much easier now.
  • Test mail server button in the email configuration settings. After you changed the settings, you can have Plone test the connection to your mail server.
  • Switch to HTML5
  • API for password validation policy. You can set your own password logic (length, characters, etc).
  • Subsection CSS classes on <body> to make Diazo theming easier
  • Official support for Python 2.7
  • Fewer dependencies
  • No Kupu and Upgrade to newer version of TinyMCE. This version of TinyMCE is fully supported by IE9.
