As the global pandemic of the COVID-19 continues to develop, we wanted to reach out to our current and prospective customers and let you know how AltaGrade is dealing with the Coronavirus emergency.
Since its official release on January 5, 2011 for many years Drupal 7 had been the content management system of choice for the majority of the web-projects hosted on AltaGrade platform. However, the picture has been gradually changing after Drupal 7's end-of-life was announced to take place sometime in November 2021 with growing number of Drupal 8, Wordpress, Backdrop or other types of websites coming instead.
WordPress 5.3 with the improved block editor, named “Kirk” in honour of jazz multi-instrumentalist Rahsaan Roland Kirk, has been released today and is available for download or update in your dashboard.
5.3 expands and refines the block editor with more intuitive interactions and improved accessibility. New features in the editor increase design freedoms, provide additional layout options and style variations to allow designers more control over the look of a site.
WordPress 5.2.4 is now available! This security release fixes 6 security issues.
WordPress versions 5.2.3 and earlier are affected by these bugs, which are fixed in version 5.2.4. Updated versions of WordPress 5.1 and earlier are also available for any users who have not yet updated to 5.2.
The following security vulnerabilities have been detected and addressed in this release:
Update of June 5, 2019: We have to re-send this newsletter once again, because when contacted about migration some customers reported they didn't receive previous notifications about Drupion-AltaGrade transformation.
A short-cycle maintenance 5.2.1 release WordPress has been announced today. The next version 5.2.2 is expected to follow in approximately two weeks.
This maintenance release fixes 33 bugs, including improvements to the block editor, accessibility, internationalization, and the Site Health feature introduced in 5.2.
As a Drupal-oriented company we - AltaGrade team - are happy to be celebrating Drupal's eighteenth birthday and sharing the joy of the founder, Dries Buytaert:
Eighteen years ago today, I released Drupal 1.0.0. What started from humble beginnings has grown into one of the largest Open Source communities in the world. Today, Drupal exists because of its people and the collective effort of thousands of community members. Thank you to everyone who has been and continues to contribute to Drupal.
I am delighted to announce today that a hosting provider previously known as Drupion changes its jurisdiction from San Jose, California to Seattle, Washington and re-launches as AltaGrade LLC, a web-hosting company for everybody created by nerds who know the best of and love to support Drupal, Backdrop, WordPress, Joomla and thousands of other most popular web applications running on Linux.
