ExpressionEngine 3.0.2 Released

Hot on the heels of 3.0.1 we bring you 3.0.2! We fixed a over 20 bugs1. Notably, we had some relationship tag issues, and after some couple’s counseling and a few trust falls things are much better; adding a site in the Site Manager works flawlessly; categories cannot be their own parents; our custom field settings pages had a case of amnesia we are happy to report has cleared up, and it now remembers everything you tell it. We’ve also updated our docs here and there, removing a few embarrasing

Version 2 End of Life

With the launch of ExpressionEngine 3, version 2 is now a legacy product. By legacy, we mean that it is not actively developed as a separate product, but not yet retired.
