This week saw a release of final version of eZ Publish 5 Kilimanjaro. One of the most prominent and advertised features available is certainly the brand new eZ Publish REST API. I know for a fact that support for full CRUD in eZ Publish REST API is one of the most wished for features in last couple of years. I’ve been honored to work on implementing the new eZ Publish REST API as part of Netgens R&D partnership with eZ Systems and the intention of this blog post is to give you insight on inner workings of the new API and give you some examples.
A month ago we celebrated a great milestone for our company: 10 years since this adventure started. It is not just a round number that we are celebrating, it is the fact that we managed to build the company from scratch by investing only our time, knowledge and persistence.
It has been a crazy few weeks (nothing but work) here at Netgen since returning from eZ UnConference #1, so I am a bit behind schedule with this post, but better late than never. :-)
Impossible, you say :) After a long year, when we first started development of version 2.0 of eZ Tags, we finally have something to show to the community. We know it shouldn’t have lasted this long, but what can you do... Sometimes a paying job just gets in a way :)
If you'd like to know how the 3-day event on Bol went from an apprentice's point of view, read on!
We have just hit a new milestone. After opening the registrations back in May, today we finished all that we can do off site and tomorrow we are going to the Summer Camp location (Bol on island of Brač) to finish the preparations and welcome all attendees. Also, the registrations on the web site are closed too as we exceeded our expectations and there is too little time for some late guest to organize the trip.
In the second interview here on Netgen Blog our guest is André Rømcke. He is the Lead Engineer for eZ Publish CMS and one of the main people behind the new verison 5.
"eZ Publish 4.x is maybe the open source CMS out there with most features, so we might never have the same feature set in the core of 5.x as it represents a slight change of focus from quantity to quality" - AR
As we all know, eZ Publish is very powerful, so much that there are probably some settings you didn’t even know existed and when you do find them, you feel like a luckiest man/woman alive. But, so much power can sometimes bring lots of headaches :)
One, relatively recent, headache I was having was when setting up host_uri siteaccess matching on one fairly large multilanguage & multisite eZ Publish installation. The installation has couple of databases and domains and many languages.
One of the news that shook the eZ Community this month is the announcement of eZ Publish 5 being developed with Symfony framework.The initial blog post got a lot of attention, with the sentiment by far being positive, but with some well put concerns regarding the business side of the decision. Taking these into account, we still think the positive repercussions of this decision greatly out weight the possibly problematic ones, and here is why.
