CMS Squad product update for 2024-02-27

Work completed in the last couple of weeks

Recently most of our updates have mentioned our focus on silverstripe/linkfield and (surprise!) we’re still working on it. The last couple of weeks have mostly been about tidying it up, improving test coverage, and adding documentation.

We’re also starting to look at what the next big piece of work will be now that we’ve pretty much wrapped up work on silverstripe/linkfield.
