CWIS version 4.1.0 has been released and is now available for download on the Scout Site.
A few highlights of this new release:
- CWIS should now be fully WCAG 2.0 AA compliant for accessibility when using the default interface.
- Emails generated via rules can now be held for approval before being sent, and there is a browsable log of outgoing emails.
- All help pages are now managed by the Pages plugin and are editable via the plugin's WYSIWYG interface.
- And there's definitely more - as usual, much more detail about new additions and fixes can be found via the CWIS Revision History option on the Administration menu.
The minimum PHP version for CWIS 4.1.0 is 5.4, which came out in 2012. If you're running PHP 5.3 or earlier, this might be an excellent time to upgrade to 5.6 or even 7.2, as support from the PHP team (including security fixes) for PHP 5.5 and earlier has ended. At Scout, we have moved to PHP 7 on our production sites because of the significant performance increase it brings.
As always, after installing the new version we ask that you use the Register with Scout feature on the Administration menu to let us know you're using the new version of the software. It really helps us determine what kind of operating environments the software is running in, and where to go next with development.
We look forward to your feedback on this new version of CWIS.
