Release notes


  • added an option to vertically align content in multi-column sections to the top, center, or bottom
  • added the multi-type calendar block, which displays a calendar of events, news, and/or blog posts (note that this works best in single column sections for now)
  • added the ability to exclude specified content from automatically-generated listings
  • added the ability to specify a time period for displayed events in an automatic list block
  • added new field options to webform to add the ability to do calculations and to use a remote data source (note that there currently may be performance issues if a form has multiple remote data source fields, particularly if using relational updating)


  • updated the Waterloo Events block to use the latest version of the API
  • updated sitemap URL handling so it no longer has to be reset every update
  • updated the service content type to display a message if no categories exist when trying to create content
