Robert Cambell announced the expected release of CMS Made Simple 1.2 with the beta version expected in a couple weeks. After the CMSMS 1.2 release all focus will be on development of a 2.0 version of the CMS.
Some of the new features and enhancements can be expected in CMSMS 1.2:
- Graphical HTML Text editor (Frontend WYSIWYG)
- News 2.5 has an ‘extra’ field for additional information (maybe an image) and supports frontend article submission
- Full permissions for the Admin Group (gid == 1) and not just the first user (uid == 1)
- Fixes to pagination issues (particularly in the admin log)
- Defaults for new pages (set the default metadata, cachable, show in menu, etc).
- A security enhanced content editor
- Additional Editor Groups
- Enhancements to debug mode for troubleshooting
- A replacement file manager
- The ability to export pages into PDF via batch operations.
- Batch operations in Layout >> Templates, and Layout >> Stylesheets
