Full speed ahead, ExpressionEngine 3.1.2 is out the door! This is the second patch release for 3.1, and contains a couple dozen bug fixes. Some of the issues squashed:
- Fixed a bug where relationship parsing could result in conditional errors.
- Accessing some files should no longer wrongly accuse you of attempting to access files outside of a directory.
- PHP 5.3 didn’t like something the Pages module was doing and complained loudly.
- Deleting a field group didn’t delete its fields. Weak
Our no-risk upgrade sale was so popular, now that 3.1 has launched with a bevy of great add-ons, we’re bringing it back! That means that ExpressionEngine 3 upgrades are
$149 , and upgrading additional sites for your v2 license are $99 each.
How is it no-risk? When you upgrade to v3, you still have access to the latest release of v2, so you can take your time migrating while benefitting from today’s savings. New purchases of version 3 include similar access.

Only two days after 3.1.0 was released, we’re releasing 3.1.1. We found a few bugs that we couldn’t let stand and squashed them as fast as possible. It’s releases like this that make us really thankful for 3.0’s much-improved updater.
In particular, there were a few PHP errors thrown when creating template groups when saving templates as files, when sometimes submitting a contact form, and when some add-ons would save particular models. With these bugs, you can expect our test coverage to
ExpressionEngine 3.1.0 has been released and it’s full of great new features, performance improvements, and over 35 bug fixes. Here are the high notes:

- As of 3.1.0 we now support PHP 7.0 and MySQL 5.7. Feel free to upgrade to the latest and greatest version of PHP and reap the rewards!

We’ve been working with third-party developers in our Developer Preview Program for the upcoming version 3.1.0, and we wanted to share some details with you ahead of its release. Our main goal for 3.1.0 is to add hooks that replace some old ones from v2. Third parties need these hooks for some of the great add-ons you’ve been waiting for v3 compatibility. So when we release 3.1.0, you can expect to see many of your favorite add-ons released around the same time.
But we didn’t want third
The ExpressionEngine user guide is now at a new home. There you can find documentation for all major versions of ExpressionEngine, including legacy and retired versions.
If you target the specific versions in your links, they will remain good regardless of future releases. So your links to

Ho ho ho! I got so many letters from you asking for a maintenance release of ExpressionEngine 2.10 and since you’ve been good little boys and girls I asked the fine folks at EllisLab to make your Christmas wish come true! I’m told this maintenance release fixes a number of bugs, changes the password maximum length to 72 characters, improves New Relic transaction reporting, and added a notification to the File fieldtype when its file does not exist. There is a full changelog available.
We wanted to get out one more release before the holidays, so here’s a small release with 16 bug fixes and 8 other additions. In particular, relationships had quite a few fixes logged and should behave itself after searching.
We have a few small additions this time around as well. As fans of Markdown we’re happy that comments can now use any formatter you have installed, including ExpressionEngine’s native Markdown formatter.
We’ve also changed how we’re reporting New Relic transactions.
ExpressionEngine 3.0.5 is now available for download. We fixed 24 bugs in this release with a continued focus on files. Using two file fields in one publish page should work as you’d expect. File fields with restricted directories now retain that restriction as expected while browsing and modifying the limit and view. The uninstallable File module is now installed.
Developers will be interested to know that the
cp_css_end hook has been fixed so it will be used and no longer cause PHP errors.
ExpressionEngine 3.0.4 is now available for download. You’ll find 30+ fixes this release, covering a wide swath of the code. File uploads now work for non-superadmins with proper permissions, the file picker now works when you have only a single upload directory, and we patched an intermittent issue with file synchronization. There were some important fixes to member management as well, especially if you have a large number of members. You can also approve pending members now, so it was
