The Backdrop CMS community is proud to announce our fifth software release: 1.4.0! The May 15, 2016 release date was right on time, following Backdrop's rolling release cycle. This release of Backdrop includes lots of exciting new features, including two new modules in core: Redirect and Project Installer!
Backdrop 1.17 is here, and contains a handful of new features. Below you'll find a few that we are most excited about sharing with you.
The first minor release version delivered on May 15, 2015 and it's full of great features!
It's been 4 months since our the 1.0 release. According to our Roadmap, that means it is time for our first minor version: 1.1.0!
We did it! Backdrop CMS is five years old today and we just pushed our 15th release 🎉
Backdrop 1.15 is officially available with the usual mix of bug fixes, improvements to the user interface, and a couple of exciting new features.
Backdrop 1.5 is a release packed with new features and an all-new out-of-box experience! A new default theme -- "Basis", drop-down menus, a homepage layout, demo content, and hero block provide a fresh take on the fundamentals of a modern day content management system.
Backdrop CMS is just under a month away from our 19th on-time release, version 1.18.0. Every 4 months, we release a new version which brings with it new improvements and features to Backdrop CMS. Feature freeze is scheduled for Jan 1, 2021 (this may be adjusted for the holiday) and the release will be on Jan 15th. In the final weeks of each release cycle, there is a frenzy of activity and we try to get new improvements finalized and approved.
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.
We're excited to announce to our third and final release for 2018, Backdrop 1.11! This version of Backdrop adds cool new functionality to Backdrop CMS along with numerous bug fixes. Highlights include:
Improved Color Customization for Themes
A new UI for color picking lets you adjust the colors of the included themes. The default theme "Basis" has also received color customization support, so you can colorize both Basis and Bartik themes now.
The Backdrop community is proud to announce our 100th release 1.16.1! 🎉
