Contao 5.2.7, a new version of the Contao open source CMS, has been released.

As always, this release contains the bugfixes of the latest Contao 4.13.35. In addition, fewer unnecessary CSRF cookies are set, which improves HTTP caching and the crawling of protected pages from within the back end has been improved. This is a release with massive performance improvements! Especially in combination with the version 6.4.0 of the symfony/http-foundation component released yesterday, page views can be up to 20% faster. An update is therefore recommended.

Changelog of the fixed issues in Contao 5.2.7:

  • #6566 Fix CSRF cookie always being set (aschempp)
  • #6450 Allow using the Twig use statement when extending legacy templates (m-vo)
  • #6581 Fix block insert tags type error (ausi)
  • #6579 Do not wrap exceptions in the Twig `ContextFactory::__toString()` method (md-netdesign)
  • #6577 Do not generate the article URL for the title insert tag (aschempp)
  • #6559 Handle NULL values in the code element (aschempp)
  • #6519 Add protected news/calendar/faq/newsletter entries to sitemap.xml if a member is logged in (bytehead)
  • #6523 Fix table picker provider with parents (ausi)
  • #6517 Use the top most parent table for pickers without value (ausi)
  • #6510 Also check for dynamic ptable in picker provider (ausi)
