django CMS 3.0 RC2 released!

Today we release django CMS 3.0 RC2.

Coincidentally this comes together with the 3000th ticket closed. People have thoroughly tested RC1 and we can report that we've fixed all the issues found.

One significant change since RC1 affects the static_placeholder templatetag. In RC1 static_placeholder was site-aware. We've changed this: static_placeholder is now once again not site-aware by default.

If you do need a site-aware static_placeholder follow these instructions:

  • change your templatetags to: {% static_placeholder "content" site %} (site doesn't need to be defined in the context)
  • Go to the static placeholder admin and change the static placeholder's new site setting accordingly.

Please test RC2 again!
