So what’s in it for the editor?
Hold your hat! Well none…
No, not if you’re going from late version of 9 to 10, only some changes happens under the hood.
The major versioning system is more a technical thing rather than a market communication event type of thing. The up versioning from 9 to 10 is pointing out that there are incompatible API changes that are needed for the developers to address.
New tech stuff with CMS 10 that might be of interest for editors:
Pages that expired, is not redirecting to login page, it’s handled like a 404 Not Found. Great!
All dates are saved in UTC (Coordinated Universal Time) in the database. Good for those who publish site pages in a multinational context.
Well, not so much more, even if there are more than 50 changes.
