CMS Squad Progress Update for 2022-10-26

As mentioned in the last update, we’re using kanban now instead of working in sprints, and these updates have changed their name to reflect that.

Over the last couple of weeks we’ve been really knuckling down on updating dependencies and standardising deprecation notices. Hopefully to update your codebase for CMS 5 compatibility, if you enable deprecation notices in the most recent version of CMS 4 first they should give you most of the information you need.

Changes to look forward to

CMS 4.12.0


Bugfixes available immediately

Community pull requests merged

Work in progress

We’re nearly finished upgrading jQuery in the CMS and upgrading the assets Flysystem dependencies. We’ve started looking at our javascript build stack which will be getting somewhat modernised - if not entirely overhauled. There’s also still quite a bit of work left to standardise our deprecation notices and remove the deprecated code for CMS 5.
