    Backward Compatibility Notes

    • ⚑️ The Concrete\Core\Express\Form\Validator\Routine\RoutineInterface class and all classes that implement it has changed. The validate method now takes a nullable third parameter for the Concrete\Core\Entity\Express\Entry object that may or may not exist. This replaces the request type attribute. The request type can now be inferred - if the entry does not exist, we assume this to be an ADD operation. If the entry exists within the validate method, you are running an UPDATE operation.
    • Block::duplicate() has changed its secondary parameter from $isCopiedWhenPropagated to $controllerMethodToTryAndRun. This lets us choose duplicate_master or the new duplicate_clipboard in certain situations. It is very unlikely that this should impact any custom code you have written as this is pretty deep in the Concrete internals.
    • If you have customized the Document Library view template, please ensure that your <form> tag has a valid input button with the name ”search”. This is checked in the controller in order to ensure searching is actually occurring. If you want to search by advanced file attributes, you’ll need this to be in place or else the Document Library controller will not check for attribute searching.

    • Simplify c5:exec return code (thanks mlocati)
    • πŸ›  Fixed: Task scheduling command is incorrect on dashboard page and in documentation, needs more detail
    • πŸ— Concrete\Core\Http\ResponseFactory used to take $session as its first constructor dependency, even though that was not used. This caused problems in the event response factory was used prior to sessions being available or being configured for database sessions that were not yet installed. This parameter has been removed. If you use the $app->make() method of building this class, you should not be affected.

    • Concrete now runs on PHP 8.
    • πŸ“¦ Tools have been completely removed, including from blocks and packages. Their functionality has been more securely and flexibly available with the routing and controller systems for many years now. (thanks mlocati!)
    • Completely rebuilt new queue system, built on Symfony Messenger.
    • Completely new command/message system, built on Symfony Messenger.
    • ⚑️ Many core components updated to their latest version, including Laravel and Symfony components.
    • βž• Add overridable collection handle generator (thanks hissy)
    • Removing old process.php script for backend requests.
    • Introducing a new command bus pattern. Developers can use to encapsulate their commands, reusing them with one or two lines in multiple places.

    • πŸ‘ Router adds support for single action controllers with __invoke (thanks shahroq)
    • πŸ‘ Allow Form helper to handle new HTML input types (thanks JohnTheFish)
    • https://github.com/concrete5/concrete5/pull/9479 (thanks jeffPaetkau)
    • Blacklist/whitelist terminology renamed throughout the core.

    Backward Compatibility Notes

    • πŸ“š If you use Core::make(), $app->make() or anything similar in your packages, and provide arguments to these classes at the same time, recent updates to the Laravel Container class may break some older code. Please see this tutorial for more information: https://documentation.concretecms.org/tutorials/add-developers-get-your-add-ons-ready-concrete-cms-90
    • Beginning in version 8, we added the ability to override core elements from within your themes. For example, if the core requires an element via View::element(β€˜conversations/add_post’; the core looks for this add-on in concrete/elements/conversations/add_post.php. However, if the currently active theme provides this element in themes/my_theme/elements/concrete/conversations/add_post.php, it will be used instead. We are changing this to remove the concrete/ directory from the elements directory within your theme. That means in order to override any core element from within your theme, you only need to make it available at the same path within the elements/ directory of your theme.
    • πŸ‘€ If you register custom help for specific pages in your package, make sure to do so from within your package’s on_start method rather than from within the Dashboard page. Our new help panel requires this. See https://github.com/concrete5/concrete5/issues/9869#issuecomment-927136592 for more information.
    • Console command c5:blacklist:clear has been renamed c5:denylist:clear
    • If you work with Concrete cookies directly in your server configurations, be aware that they have been renamed. The default session cookie has been changed from CONCRETE5 to CONCRETE; the default is-logged-in cookie has been changed from CONCRETE5_LOGIN to CONCRETE_LOGIN.

Discoverer: Adrian Tiron from FORTBRIDGE (https://www.fortbridge.co.uk/ ) Please note that Cloud IAAS provider mis-configurations are not Concrete CMS vulnerabilities.
