In the week-and-a-half since the release of Bolt 2.1.0, we've resolved some more issues, quirks and bugs that have been discovered. We've even managed to squeeze in a couple of smaller new features in this release, too! If you've bumped into any annoyances with 2.1.0, please upgrade to Bolt 2.1.3.

Changes in this release, since 2.1.0:

  • Added: Stop Finder from recursing common build folders and place a limit on the maximum depth it will recurse otherwise. (Thanks @Cooperaj, see #3069)
  • Fixed: Removing default taxonomylink route leads to exception (See #3070)
  • Fixed: Don't reset urls when adding base path. (See #3074)
  • Fixed: Whoops error when duplicating a record. (See #3064)
  • Fixed: Fixes broken extension installer (See #3086)
  • Fixed: Redirect for backend trailing slash redirect (/bolt -> /bolt/) (See #3083)
  • Fixed: Regression that errored on PHP < 5.3.6: Remove SplFileInfo::getExtension(). (See #3095)

  • Added: Re-added standalone jQuery lib, as some extensions might need it.
  • Fixed: Workaround, so we don't break on installations with "require": [] in extensions/composer.json (see #3171)
