Beta 5 takes some significant steps forward in usability, mainly in the area of filling in missing permissions.

Important upgrade notice

Before upgrading from a previous version of Open Outreach, special steps are needed. Because the 'media' type field was deprecated , we changed the type of media fields to 'file'. There is no upgrade available to support this change, so prior to upgrading it would be necessary to delete all instances of field_media.

New features

  • Added new Debut SEO feature for search engine optimization.
  • Added Mix and Match, a highly configurable Fusion-based theme, as an alternative to the default Granada theme.

Fixes and updates

  • Major updates to Media and File entity integration following the amazing work done in the Chicago Drupal 7 Media sprint.
  • Lots of fixes to permissions and access, to ensure contributor and editor roles have sufficient access and shortcut links.
