FLEXIcontent 3.2 beta is out

Hello we are happy to announce FLEXIcontent 3.2 first beta !

Fixed soft-deny in J3.6.5 causing: Add item not possible for authors without component level create ACL privilege
Fixed (mostly) editing of Falang translations in item form
Fixed dashboard styling being broken in chrome, and also fixed unneeded title of empty boxes showing
Fixed drag-drop ordering in item form: no jumping, no scale-like wrapping, no content wrapping during dragging
Fixed fields parameter element, in configuration not checking for legacy values thus breaking existing configuration on configuration form load
Fixed saving of ACL permissions in field configuration form (not possible to change in J3.6.?)

Added minimimal-overhead task execution for frontend, only loading Joomla Framework,

  • e.g. 2x-5x fast AJAX responce, currently only supporting text-search autocomplete task,
    no longer effected by web-sites with overloaded onAfterInitialize event (3rd party plugin)

Revised media manager

  • new UI for image-gallery field
  • new UI media management
    -- list / grid views for both file list and AJAX upload,
    -- editing item properties for all uploaded items
    -- full page thumb previewing
    -- instant thumb size slider
    -- assign multiple files at once in any file-using field
  • new attractive styling
  • ajaxified item / category / types / etc forms
  • save as copy for all forms

Revises Items manager UX

  • compact display of secondary categories and tags
  • toggle all secondary categories and tags at once
  • 40%-50% reduced time during browser rendering of HTML (important when listing 500 items)
  • Intergrated state selector featured, and preview to btn-group
  • State selector with minimal HTML no longer add HTML-render or JS load, during initial page opening
  • Filter button button remember state and show active filters as a counter, same for columns button
  • Converted multi-item "Change state" button to be drop down

Performance, flexicontent period tasks, are not more "smartly" executed, thus reducing even further their alread minimal impact
Various other , to do compile a list
e.g.

  • better grouing for ACL with headers makes it easier to configure
