Right on schedule, the Exponent Development Team releases Exponent 2.0.0 - Release Candidate 1, code named "Progressive Prowess." This is the first of 2 release Candidates scheduled before a stable release just four weeks from now.

The team has been working closely with community members in the forums to catch and track bugs, and close as many glaring issues as possible. Confidence and excitement are high with Exponent's contributors that the code quality and overall usability of the system is the best it's ever been.  This release focuses on stabilization and fixing brokenness.  Other notable changes include::

  • Many tweaks to Ecommerce
  • Permissions (cascading) problems fixed
  • Adds a new 'Data' view to form module
  • Minor updates to the install/upgrade process
  • 3rd party libraries updated and many deprecated (1.0) files and functions removed from package
