ELMCIP v1.24 released

ELMCIP 1.24 was released on Wednesday, May 10 2017.

It contains quite a few changes to end users. Here is a few worth noticing:

ELMCIP v1.23 released

ELMCIP 1.23 was released Friday 31 of March. It is mostly a maintenance release. Crunch bugs and clean up stuff. Contains very few changes noticeable for a end user. Here is a few worth noticing.

ELMCIP v1.22 released

ELMCIP v1.22 was released this 31.11.2016.

It is time to bring out the fizzy drinks. Our first release in about two years without almost no data migration, or changes to our data storage/structure. Not having to fiddle with that give us more time to address other types of ELMCIP issues. This release have also test coverage then any of the previous releases. More testing not only help us to confirm that the issue at hand was properly fixed. More testing also result in that unrelated bugs and room for improvement get noticed. This have caused our backlog to grow a bit but I personally see this as a good thing not a bad thing. I encourage everyone to notice, and write down and file any issue that you might come across.

A big thank you to Hannah Ackermans that have done 99.997% of the end user testing.

The end of migration

The last of the node reference to entity reference have been done. Someone should by me a beer. It took us more then two years to complete them all. It have been difficult, tiresome and boring. Hope we never have to do this again. The main challenge have been changing all the views and verifying that they work, not the fields them self. All we have now is to clean up and remove migration tools and remove node reference from our system and all its data.
