Jahia 8.2.0 Release Notes

May 31, 2024

What's new?

Jahia 8.2.0 is a feature release which comes with noticeable improvements, changes in our supported stack, library updates, module updates & other modifications.

Despite the array of new features and changes, the Jahia team has invested significant effort to ensure that upgrading from 8.1 to 8.2 is as straightforward as it can be. The main new features being optional, it is possible to adopt them progressively over a few months, post-upgrade, at your own pace.

Main new features

Jahia 8.2 provides updates for two main features of our CMS:

  1. Page Builder, a new UI to manage content inside pages (in context editing).
  2. JavaScript Modules, a new set of technologies to build websites with Jahia, without any Java knowledge. JavaScript modules leverage React/ JSX, rendered server side. Everything you need to know about JavaScript modules is available in the developer documentation. If you're a developer, you can also try out our new tutorials.

The Jahia team understands that adopting these new features will impact your projects and organization. However, rest assured that existing alternatives will remain, affording you the flexibility to try and adopt new features progressively, according to your specific needs and timeline. System administrators & developers can enable or disable Page Builder & the old interface Page Composer.

Other significant UX changes

  • The Category Manager has been fully redeveloped to match our latest technology and UI standard.
  • Editing the site configuration (virtual site node) is now available from Administration ⇒ Sites ⇒ "Sites properties". This new page has been added for consistency, and it is impossible to edit the site configuration using right-click ⇒ edit from the new Page Builder.

jCustomer 2

For organizations using jExperience and jCustomer, note that Jahia 8.2 requires jCustomer 2.x and jExperience 3.x. If you’re using Jahia 8.1.x, we highly recommend migrating to jCustomer 2.x before updating to 8.2. All required information is available on the page upgrading to jCustomer 2.x.

Technical changes

Detailed information is available on the page Preparing for upgrading to Jahia 8.2. Here is an overview:

  • Our supported stack has been updated and is available in our customer center. A significant change is the addition of JDK 17 support and the drop of JDK 8 support. 
  • Library updates:  Jahia 8.2 includes many library updates to benefit from their latest security fixes.
  • Content types provided by Jahia: In the previous version of Jahia, many built-in content types were active by default when clicking “add content.” This caused some confusion for editors because there were too many types available. With Jahia 8.2, most of these content types were moved to a new  “legacy default content types” module. 
  • Content Editor 4 module merged into jContent: Jahia versions 8.0.x and 8.1.x include two modules: Content Editor and jContent. Starting from Jahia 8.2.0, these two modules will be merged into jContent, using version 3.0. This new version includes the functionalities of the Content Editor module as well as the new Page Builder.
  • JSON overrides: As part of the merge of Content Editor and jContent, JSON overrides, which allow modification of the edit form, have been simplified. Instead of two files, they now rely on a single JSON override file. This provides more flexibility when moving fields and fieldsets in the edition form. Previous JSON override files should still work, but full retro-compatibility is not guaranteed.
  • External Data Provider: Jahia 8.2 introduces new interfaces to declare EDP using OSGi more easily
  • Spring Framework & customizations done outside of modules: With Jahia 8.2, the use of Spring framework in modules is officially deprecated. In the same philosophy, Jahia is also deprecating customizations of the software done outside of modules. If some customizations cannot be achieved using modules or without Spring Framework, please raise the issue with our support team; and the product team will implement new extensions to allow you to use OSGI. Jahia is aware that these topics can have an important impact on your projects, which is why:
    • Spring Framework and non-modules customizations are still supported with 8.2 (deprecated, but supported).
    • No breaking change was added in 8.2 to enforce those policies.
  • Hibernate: Before 8.2, Jahia exposed its Hibernate library. Starting with Jahia 8.2, Hibernate will no longer be exposed, and using it directly won’t be possible. If you need to connect to databases, we recommend using your own JDBC driver and SQL or embed your own framework. In future versions of Jahia, we’ll either provide a library fully compatible with OSGi or document how to use your own. If this is an issue for you, you can contact our support team, which works closely with our product team.
  • The following modules have been moved out of the default build, moved to the Jahia store, and are not supported by Jahia anymore:
    • SDL generator - Note: Adding SDL files to your modules is still fully supported.
    • tabularList
    • grid
    • default-skins
  • The Skins module has been removed from the default build. It is still supported by Jahia and there is no plan to stop supporting this module.
  • Finally, portlets, which have been deprecated with Jahia 8.0.0, have now fully been removed from Jahia. 

The following modules were updated between Jahia 8.1.7.1 and Jahia 8.2.0.1
