WCMS Web Dev Rev wrap-up for October 30, 2015

WCMS Web Dev Rev

This week, had some interesting notes from around the web: Firefox is going to start marking login forms in HTTP as insecure; the next version of Firebug for Firefox is going to integrate with DevTools; Twitter now has polls (update: Twitter's blog post announcing polls); and an article that will be very useful soon, "What Happened to Hook_Menu in Drupal 8?".

WCMS Web Dev Rev

This week, we started by pointing out the releases of Drupal 7.41 and Drupal 8 RC2. We looked at a blog post that details some of the recent changes to Drupal 7, attempting to clear up the misconception that new features only come to Drupal 8. Finally, we looked at some very positive benchmarks for the upcoming PHP 7 (as well as their "real numbers" equivalent).

WCMS Web Dev Rev

This week, we started by pointing out that Drupal 7.40 had indeed been released, then what happens with Drupal 8 patches now that RC1 is out, and finally a potentially interesting git add-on command to keep your repos fresh. Finally, we announced that we were expecting to roll out WCMS 1.12.1 on Friday night, and that is indeed the plan.

WCMS Web Dev Rev

This week, we noted the "publications list" on people profiles, introduced with WCMS 1.12, had been disabled on all production sites, and that 1.12.1, a bug fix release, was expected sometime next week. We also noted that Drupal 7.40 was expected soon, and that this will be evaluated by the WCMS team after it is released, to determine when it will be released on production servers. In addition, Drupal 8 Release Candidate 1 came out this week, and we noted that Drupal 8 will completely remove PHPTemplate (the Drupal 7 theming engine) support.

WCMS Web Dev Rev

This week, we noted that WCMS 1.12 had been released on Wednesday night, though sites were still running through the updates, and that DrupalCon Barcelona had just finished and generated a lot of videos - for example, the Tuesday timeslot at 11 am generated 10 videos all by itself. We showed Alex.js, a JavaScript library designed to catch insensitive, inconsiderate writing, and Fit Commit, a Git hook to validate your commit messages based on community standards.
