Howdy fellow Mauticians!
If you downloaded Mautic 1.3.0 before 8:00 PM CST March 1st 2016, you may have an issue with your installation. If you do, please re-download the complete install package from https://mautic.org/download/ and try the installation again.
We’ve released 1.3.0! The release comes with a few bug fixes and some great new features.
A few things to note about this release:
- I know we said 1.2.4 would be the last release to support PHP 5.3, but this release also supports it, due to a better understanding of Semantic Versioning. We’ve come to believe that bumping the minimum PHP requirement in a minor release like this could be considered a break in backwards compatibility, so we don’t want to leave any existing 1.2.4 users out in the cold (a small percentage still use PHP 5.3). Also of note, this is the last minor release in the 1.x series (there will be no 1.4.0), but we may have a couple more bug-fix releases in the 1.3.x release series.
- Twig support has been added for Themes! You can now write your themes using the Twig templating language instead of PHP, although traditional PHP templates are still supported. This feature is to pave the way for custom themes on hosted mautic.com sites, and moves us closer to releasing the Mautic Marketplace where you can download custom themes and plugins!
- Leads now received emails with customized signatures based on their lead owner. You’ll find a new Signature field on your profile page where you can enter your customized signature.
