What's New in 3.9.0 RC1 Development Release:
We have now added a completely new front-end design.
This new design replaces all the different sitedesigns that shipped with earlier versions.
We think the new front-end design will be very much appreciated and will show in much more detail what you can build with eZ publish.
Together with the new features in the Online Editor and the inclusion of the Open Document Format extension (previously known as "oo" and the "OpenOffice extension") eZ publish provides many new features out-of-the-box.
What's New in 3.8.6 Stable Release:
Because of a bug that was introduced in eZ publish 3.8.5, xmlblock attributes containing single linefeeds were not rendered correctly.
The result is that content was not displayed correctly.
However, it is important to note that the bug was not destructive to data.
