I'm pleased to announce that Zenario version 7.0.7 has been released. It's a great release, and will be the last in the 7.0-series before some more major changes come along in version 7.1.

Here is a quick tour of the new features.

Re-brand Zenario in your name

Running a web design agency? Make Zenario your CMS!

You can now re-brand Zenario by changing the icon administrators click to log in, and the logo on the admin login screen.

To re-brand Zenario as "your CMS", just go to Configuration->Site Settings->Branding, and open the admin box:

Better management of documents

An improved Documents panel in Organizer makes it easier to see a document's info and public/private status.

For documents that are no password-protected (i.e. public), you can now link to them easily from a WYSIWYG editor. It looks like this:

Also, when uploading a new version of a document (i.e. a simple replace), you can now update the document with a new file, without losing the document's meta data.

When using a document container plugin, you can now show file size and date uploaded on your website when using a document container. Documents can also now show a title on the front-end.

More control over extranet user and admin logins

You can now control the length of time that  extranet users and administrators stay logged in for after they visit your site; i.e. if they do not visit the site for the time specified they will be logged out.

You can also control the length of time that the cookie consent, "remember me" and "Log me in automatically" options last.

If your site uses multiple sub-domains, a popular option with multi-language sites, administrators and extranet users can now log in across all of the subdomains without having to log in to each one in turn.

More control over administrator accounts

You can now limit the number of administrators that can be created on any given site by editing a number in a site's description file. (This limit excludes multi-site administrators.)

You can also limit the number of languages that can be created, e.g. you can set a limit of one to limit a site to only one language.

You can flag that an administrator should be shown the video help tour when they next log in.

Extra security during administrator login (Enterprise)

We've added a new option for additional security on administrator logins.

In order to log into admin mode from a new browser or IP address, the administrator must first log in successfully and must then enter a code that is sent to their email address. A new code is required whenever using a different browser, clearing cookies or connecting from a different IP address.

The code can also have a lifetime, such as to expire after say 1 month.

Video help tour

We've added help videos in Organizer, which you can see by clicking a blue Help button. We plan to update these videos periodically.

New module: "full screen"

This adds a button to show your website in full-screen mode.

New module: Countdown

This creates a timed countdown to a day or event on your website.

Improved user import system

When importing user records back into the system you can now choose whether to merge, overwrite or not update any records.

Exporting and importing phrases for translation is friendlier

We've improved the format of the spreadsheets we generate. They're easier to read, and the cells we expect you to edit are now highlighted in a different colour.

Minor features

Added a warning at the top-right of the admin-login screen if your URL was just redirected.

Added a warning icon on menu tab of admin toolbar when a content item is orphaned.

Added a help tab when editing a plugin's settings, that explains what the plugin does.

The Slideshow 2 module now provides more helpful information to the administrator on what size images to upload.

Added icons to content items in Organizer that show their privacy (e.g. public, private...)

Grid view for locations in Organizer has been reinstated. You can now view locations using either grid, list or map view.

When creating or editing a location, you can now manually enter the latitude and longitude coordinates.

Added a view of the email templates used by a specific module.

Designers can now create a list of pre-set styles for administrators to use when they are editing an email template or a newsletter.

Bug fixes

Fixed a bug where administrators could manage locations without the permission to do so.

Fixed a bug where web-crawlers could not view your site's favicon.

Fixed a bug with the "Google Translate" option in the Export Tools module.

Software versioning

This will be the last release of the CMS under our current versioning scheme.

Our current scheme used version numbers such as 7.0.7a, where the first and second numbers were the major version, the third number was the minor version, and the letter at the end was the patch version.

The release after this will be version 7.1, and we will be switching to the Semantic Versioning scheme.

Semantic Versioning uses version numbers such as 7.1.0, where the first number is the major version, the second number is the minor version, and the third number is the patch version.

Our reason for switching is that Semantic Versioning is more commonly used, and people are more familiar with it.
