We try to avoid breaking changes as much as we can. But we also put a lot of effort in keeping our technical debt in Kirby as low as possible. Sometimes such breaking changes are necessary to move forward with a clean code base.
You might wonder why there are breaking changes in a minor release according to Semantic Versioning.
This release is Kirby 18.104.22.168 (major release 5 of Kirby 3)
Traditionally, we combine patch and minor releases though and only need the fourth versioning level for regression fixes.
Required PHP Version
With this release we drop support for PHP 7.2, which has reached end of life. But we also introduce support for the brand-new stable version of PHP 8.0, which has been released on December 1st.
Date field format option
3.5.0 is dropping the format option of the date field. This is a breaking change which we will reverse in 3.5.1.
accept option for file blueprints
If no custom accept restrictions are defined in the file blueprint, Kirby will now limit the accepted uploads to the types image, document, archive, audio and video by default. This protects your sites against unexpected uploads like code files that could be used to attack the server or the visitor's browsers.
A huge thank-you to Tim Ötting for creating and maintaining the fabulous Builder plugin. Tim agreed that we could use his plugin as inspiration for our new Blocks field as a replacement for his great plugin. Your work really means a lot to us, Tim!
Thank you to all the contributors who helped with pull requests, translations and tests for this release. Without you, it wouldn't be possible.
Thank you to our amazing community for your ongoing support. Without all your feedback, patience and passion, Kirby wouldn't be where it is today! 💛
