We've just released v3.50!  Note that we've decided to bump up the version number from 3.15 to 3.50 to reflect the significance of this update.

This beta is mostly a maintenance release, with two major new changes: 

FREE VERSION - We no longer require the "Powered By CMSB" footer on unlicensed versions.  This effectively means you can use CMSB without paying a license fee and get all the same functionality as the paid version (except for private labelling).  It's been a long time dream of ours to make CMS Builder available to as many people as possible and we're very grateful to all our clients and supporters who have made that possible.   So this means you'll be able to use CMS Builder at no cost for as many projects as you like, and if you want to brand it as your own the "private-label" version is available with a purchased license.

Upcoming PHP 7 Requirements - As of the end of the year, PHP 5.6 and PHP 7.0 are getting discontinued.  That means they won't even get security updates.  Accordingly, future versions of CMSB will require PHP 7.1 or better.  So if you haven't yet upgraded your server, this is a great time of year to do it.  Let me know if you need any help.  Note: This isn't required yet, but will be soon.  The current version requires PHP 5.6.

And here's the complete changelog: 

- Free Version: Removed "Powered By" link from the footer of unlicensed versions.
There is now no branding on generated website pages. You can purchase a license
if you want to private-label the CMS backend/admin program.

- WYSIWYG: Updated TinyMCE from v4.7.2 to v4.9.0 (Released 2018-11-27)
- WYSIWYG: Fixed issue where tinymce cache files weren't getting saved in data folder
- Improved support for automatic image orientation on upload using ImageMagick
- File Uploading: Uploader now reports mime type on forbidden file errors (for debugging)
- Prevent "Copy of" from being added to separator field labels when using Save and Copy plugin
- Misc Code and other minor improvements.

Hi All,

When the Flash uploader was being used the 'allowed file types' determined the files that would be shown in the upload dialog when searching for the files to upload.

With the new HTML5 uploader, the upload dialog seems to show 'all files' regardless of the 'allowed file types' restrictions.

Thought you'd want to know.

Hi Jerry,

Thanks for letting us know about that. We're looking at potentially replacing the HTML5 uploader library currently being used, and that can be something we take into consideration.
