    Minor

    This release is a hot fix for some users experiencing problems when deleting files in CloudCannon when the site is connected to dropbox. GitHub syncing previously allowed syncing of unsupported files, this has also been patched. A larger feature release will be online later this week.

  • This week’s deployment focuses on usability changes to the sites list. Site names are no longer required to be unique with the exception of Dropbox connected sites. Storage provider details are displayed on the sites list to help distinguish between environments. If a site icon contains transparency it will be displayed with a padding around it. Alternatively if the site icon has no transparency the image will be shown to the edge its wrapper.

    Empty blogging interface

    Syncing improvements ensure that sites stay synchronised when reconnected. When connecting a Git repository, all files on CloudCannon are reset to the state on the selected branch.

    Features:

    • New sites list design.
    • Site icon pixel reading to optimise viewing.
    • Videos and audio files are served from a CDN.

    Fixes:

    • Resetting a connection will delete files in CloudCannon. This often left sites in an intermediate state.
    • Syncing with GitHub or Bitbucket no longer syncs the _site and node_modules directories.
  • This release contains additional configuration for SAML users. This allows a custom issuer for grouping sites into authentication groups. Additionally, a fix for initial BitBucket syncs getting stuck for long periods of time.

  • Features:

    • Editor links have been added to the visual editor to allow customisation of your interfaces.
    • Commit hashes are available on each site activity from GitHub and Bitbucket.

    Fixes:

    • srcset and sizes attributes are now valid attributes within the Markdown editor. These were previously filtered out on save.
    • Renaming folders to the same name with different cases was causing odd behaviour.
    • Prevented multiple error messages on upload failure.
    • Removing i18n from a site would cause the site to get stuck with the previous i18n.
    • Bitbucket initial syncing got stuck in a particular state.
  • Syncer Fixes
