All UWaterloo Scholar sites are being upgraded to UWaterloo Scholar version 1.7. This upgrade is scheduled to be deployed to UWaterloo Scholar production sites between 9:00 pm and 10:00 pm on Wednesday, November 20, 2019.
What is happening? Effective May 1, 2020, the WCMS will no longer be accepting new or changed features from external (non-WCMS team) developers for use with WCMS 2 (Drupal 7).
What is the impact? Custom development work affecting WCMS 2 sites will not be shipped to production as of this date. At that point, any future custom development will only be considered for WCMS 3 (Drupal 8 initially, then Drupal 9) and will be targeted to ship only when the affected sites have been moved to WCMS 3.
What is happening? All WCMS "FDSU", single page, conference and publication sites are being upgraded to WCMS 2.7.1. This release does not affect UWaterloo Scholar sites. Full release notes are available, which are subject to change.
When is this happening?
Pilot sites, wms-dev, and wms-profiles will be updated:
Thursday, May 30 from 7:00 p.m. to Friday, May 31 at 7:00 a.m.
All UWaterloo Scholar sites are being upgraded to UWaterloo Scholar version 1.6 and Open Scholar version 3.103.19. This upgrade is scheduled to be deployed to UWaterloo Scholar production sites overnight on Wednesday, May 8, 2019.
Have you hired a co-op student to work on your site in the WCMS? Co-op student training will be offered May 7 and 8 from 9:00 a.m. - noon in MC 2060 (this is the SEW099, WCMS for Content Maintainers course). They must attend both mornings to receive credit. Register your co-op student for training.
WCMS Drop-in lab regularly scheduled hours are changing. Beginning in April, the Drop-in lab will only be available on Thursday afternoons from 1:00-4:00 p.m. If you require special arrangements outside of the regular drop-in hours please contact WCMS support.
What is happening? Information Systems & Technology’s (IST) Web Development team is working on the next version of the WCMS (in Drupal 8) and is looking for your feedback to help inform prioritization of future development and enhancements.
