concrete5 8.5.5 Release Candidate 1 is now available! We'd like help testing this one, since we'd really love for it to be the last release before version 9! This version of concrete5 fixes some bugs, issues with the theme customizer, some JavaScript console errors, and a bit more.

concrete5 8.5.4 is now available! Sometimes when we do a big release, we have to do another one pretty quickly. This is no exception. 

8.5.3 accidentally shipped some new features that aren't quite ready yet. 8.5.4 turns those off, but also makes available a ton of new features that we've had in our development pipeline, including Express search indexing improvements, the ability to export Express objects from the command line, a new custom attribute type of User Group, the ability to set file storage locations at the folder level, and much more.

Time flies! It's been awhile since our last core update. This maintenance release improves concrete5 in a number of subtle ways, and is highly recommended for anyone running concrete5 version 8.

Note: if you recently became unable to edit your concrete5 website with Chrome, this version provides a fix for that. (Additionally, a Chrome update has fixed this as well.)
