We have no Orchard Podcast this week but don't worry, we can serve with information about new releases. Did I use
On Orchard 1.x
Orchard 1.10.3 pre-release
The 1.10.3 version of Orchard 1.x is now in the pre-release state. It means this version needs some more testing, before going to production. The documentation and the release notes will arrive soon too!
On Orchard Core
Added documentation for meta tags
Meta tags are available to use in Orchard Core for a while and now you can find documentation in ReadTheDocs about how to use them in Liquid and Razor.
A simple meta tag
The shape_cache liquid tag
By using the shape_cache liquid tag, you can set the caching parameters of a shape. Let's say you would like to cache a shape, that has an ID my-shape for 5 minutes. In the screen below, you could see how to do that using liquid.
Orchard Core Beta 3
If you head to the GitHub repository of Orchard Core and filter the issues with the beta3 milestone, you will see that there aren't any issues left. Now the community can look into testing and shipping the new release of the CMS. Hope the Beta 3 release will come soon!
The community always try to use the newest version of the ASP.NET Core. For now, the version of the Microsoft.AspNetCore.All package has been updated from 2.2.1. to 2.2.2.
