It’s exciting to announce the release of Backdrop CMS version 1.12.0 on Backdrop’s 4th Birthday (and the follow-up security release 1.12.1 the next day)! Backdrop CMS version 1.12 comes with a number of bug fixes, improvements to the user interface, and a suite of new features, such as:
Backdrop core can now self-update.
In addition to doing module, theme, and layout updates from within Backdrop, version 1.12 now includes the ability to manually update backdrop itself. This is the next step in our journey towards providing automatic updates.
