Scanning through the detailed changelogs to create this news item there aren't big changes, as it should be for a patch release, but many smaller improvements and fixes to the overall code base. This can be metadata on the packages, linting configuration, removing deprecation warnings and updating compatability information. And of course there are many small functional non breaking editions to end points and small bugs fixed.
Many of these changes were made at the Alpine City Sprint held at the beginning of February, where our community members worked on larger long term efforts like improving CI, cleaning up our codebase, remove cyclic dependencies and improve the inheritance/importing structure.
Some bigger changes that could interest you:
- plone.rest has a major version increase with a breaking change on HTTP 301/302 status codes.
- plone.restapi receives new endpoints for cache rule control.
- Many packages had their deprecation warning, compatible Plone/Python releases and code checking/linting updated.
- Upgrade profiles were fixed, some ClassicUI barceloneta profiles were not run correctly
- The patterns for the ClassicUI frontend have fixes in pat-livesearch, pat-relateditems, pat-datatables, and pat-select2.
- Translation updates for tr, es, eu, de.
