WCMS Web Dev Rev

This week, we noted that the upcoming release of WCMS 1.12 was now expected for the night of September 29; that the recent GitLab maintenance was to update the software to a newer version; that DrupalCon Barcelona was just wrapping up and that videos should be available soon, if they are not already; and we shared what a Drupal Monopoly board might look like.

This week, our "notes section" was mostly limited to discussion about the upcoming release of WCMS 1.12, expected the week of September 21st. We did note that DrupalCamp Montreal was last weekend, so there was a chance that some sessions had been recorded and posted.

We started off by noting that our own Mike Tjendra and Nate Vexler were featured in a story about the recent launch of the new campus map. It was also noted that the WCMS team has announced the availability of Publications sites with a beta release. We talked about how we're working with JSON more and more these days, and that plugins such as JSONview for Firefox and JSONview for Chrome can make sure that JSON output is easily readable within your browser. Finally, we mentioned that DrupalCamp Montreal was this weekend, in case anyone was planning to go to Montreal but had nothing to do.

We started out with some sad news (for us) - Carly McLeod, from the training and support team, is leaving the university for a high school teaching position; today is her last day. We then moved on to note that PHP 5.4 will be reaching end of life soon; we made sure that people were aware (especially since we just finished a series on FlexBox) of the "Can I Use" site, which lets you know what features are supported by what browsers; and we shared a "caniuse" command line tool, for looking up things from the "Can I Use" site without using a web browser.
