2020/05/07 Changelog

Our team has been quite busy in the latest weeks with major architectural changes that will help our application better scale, and face our growing number of users. πŸ’—

Enhancements

  • Pro customers:
    • Faster deployments of app updates
    • Set default custom Docker image and protected previews
  • Group branches in the dashboard: Branches from the same repository are now grouped, you can switch, remove, and transfer branches from a cleaner dashboard. Note: this does not change the fact that branches have to be added from your Git repository first, before being imported to Forestry.
  • Snippets per section (opt-in): Teams looking to use different snippets per section have now the possibility to group snippets by mirroring the folder structure of their sections. For example, if you only want a snippet to appear in your posts section you can create a .forestry/snippets/_posts/figure.snippet or .forestry/snippets/content/posts/figure.snippet in your repository.
  • Instant Previews: Ruby + Bundler 1 environments to prevent errors on the installation phase for projects bundled with bundler v1.x. In the advanced settings use the following images:forestryio/ruby:2.6-bundler1 or forestryio/ruby:2.6-bundler1-node10
    Tip: Remove your Gemfile.lock from your Git repository and switch to our default Ruby image if you want to use our default bundler v2.x env (faster dependencies install).

Fixes

  • Media: Refresh view after a media upload or deletion.
  • Hugo: Invite you to add an empty config.toml file at the root for projects using directory-based folders to bypass config check on import.
  • Netlify Large Media: Swap netlify.com with the new netlify.app domain
  • Yahoo! users get their invitation mail.

Thanks to all users that reported issues. Our team has planed a bug squash next week, stay tuned for more fixes and enhancements!

Stay safe!
