Features and Enhancements

  • [rev:115416] Changed canEdit and canCreate extend to extendedCan

  • [rev:115816] #6321 Whitelisted file extensions with uppercase extensions blocked by case sensitive FilesMatch directive in assets/.htaccess (does not affect IIS 7.x which uses web.config)
  • [rev:115720] transaction function names fixed
  • [rev:115460] DateField wrong datepicker-%s.js path (fixes #6296, thanks martijn)
  • [rev:115443] Incorrect call to weekday function in Date class (thanks webbower!)
  • [rev:115442] Checking for existence of draft and live records in SilverStripeNavigatorItem_ArchiveLink->getHTML() (from r115130)
  • [rev:115440] #6291 Remove rollback action from CMSMain allowed_actions and rely on form action_rollback instead which is safer
  • [rev:115437] Fixed edge case bug where SilverStripeNavigatorItem would fail if a page was not published, and the navigator archive link was generated
  • [rev:115399] #6304 PageCommentInterface::PostCommentForm() loads inappropriate data from cookie, including wrong values for ParentID
  • [rev:115379] #6299 TableListField::Link() includes $action value twice (thanks ajshort!)
  • [rev:115314] #6287 open_basedir restriction breaks RandomGenerator when trying to read dev/urandom
  • [rev:115313] Allowing CMSMain->rollback() outside of form contexts, temporariliy disabling CSRF protection. Necessary in order to get rollback actions working from admin/getversion (regression from 2.4.4 release, see #6291)

Minor changes

  • [rev:115854] #6397 CoreTest should use test specific paths, otherwise conflicts can occur in certain environments
