Statamic 4 has been released - yahoo!
With a major focus on user experience and modernisation, this update helps tighten the already sleek content authoring experience, and we're already starting to work with Statamic 4 for our current dev sites - and we're really digging the updates.
We have also started to roll out updates to selected sites, with more to come shortly.
These will help clean the user interface, and help improve your authoring workflow, as well as update the underlying tech to be modern, lean and ready to keep your site moving in to the future.
Our Statamic addons
Not sure if you know, but we have a number of open source Statamic addons to help developers with some common features like sitemap generation and RSS/Atom feeds.
All of our addons are ready to work with Statamic 4, and we will continue to support Statamic 3.4 for the next few months while developers update.
We're planning a rework of all of our addons over the coming months, which will be a major version bump, and at that time will drop support for Statamic 3.x - but the earlier versions will remain available if you need them too.
Statamic 4 introduces a new
icon fieldtype, as well as an
svg tag. And while these do some of what our Iconamic addon does, we know some of you do rely on Iconamic - we do too! It's not going anywhere in the immediate future, and we'll continue to update Iconamic for the foreseeable future.
The first-ever Flat Camp is coming up shortly in North Carolina. This is Statamic's take on a conference, probably more "retreat", and to think of it as a "summer camp for adults". A few of the Mity team are headed to the United States to join in too!
Marty has a background in Computer and Information Science, software development, web development, multimedia and web accessibility, and is Mity Digital’s resident nerd.
Outside of his programming work, Marty is a keen landscape photographer, and also teaches Les Mills group fitness classes.
