Backdrop 1.9 Released

Backdrop is pleased to announce the first of three annual releases for 2018 that includes some brand-new features and a long list of fixes!

One of the new features that stands out in the 1.9.0 release is the ability to manage individual files.  You can now replace a file, and all pages where that file is referenced will be automatically updated. 

Backdrop 4 Good

Wouldn't it be great to work on tangible projects and help non-profit organizations further their cause with Backdrop websites? We often work in a theoretical or abstracted space when working on Backdrop core and contrib software. I was delighted by the idea of working with the Backdrop community on concrete real websites for a cause.

Yesterday I launched the latest version of Panda.id.au, my personal blog, which I re-built from the ground up using the Backdrop CMS. This is my second Backdrop website to date; the first being my business site: PackWeb.com.au. A lot of work went into this seemingly simple, minimal blog website, so I thought I'd write about how I built it and how I contributed to Backdrop along the way.

This minor release comes with refreshing design improvements for several administration interfaces and a few new functionality enhancements to improve Backdrop’s usability overall.
