eZ Publish Platform 5.2 is a STS (Short term supported) release towards 5.3 LTS (Long term supported) which enhances several aspects of the 5.x kernel for usability and extensibility, in addition to additional performance improvements on top of what 5.1 deliveredThe main topic of 5.2 has been to improved a lot in terms of building websites, DemoBundle should now serve as an better good example.

5.2 is on a direct path to 5.3LTS

Even if you plan to launch on 5.3 LTS, no worries, we plan to add richer composer support in the next couple of months providing you a more streamlined update process allowing you to start using 5.2 right now.

...

Have you ever been missing a way to extend the provided content controller? Had needs to do custom cache logic and been missing the good old cache_ttl = 0 hack?
5.2 brings with it a powerful way to use the existing override system to, instead of overriding just a template, override the whole controller. This allows you to extend the built-in controller and for instance get full access to tune the cache headers for a specific content type that has different use than normal content, or just enrich the final template.

API Signals listenable, also via Symfony event system

...

This release resolves a limitation with persistence caching introduced in 5.1, a new caching service "ezpublish.cache_pool" takes a siteaccess group setting "cache_pool" into consideration for selecting cache service, and hence can be configured with multi repository setups in mind. In addition you can now safely reuse this cache pool as the persistence cache is prefixed within "spi" cache key and will not clear your data if you reuse it.

...

  • Updated documentation on reusing the cache service
  • Updated documentation on configuring multi repository setup
  • Original pull-request
  • Support for more than 30 languages

    With 64-bits servers now being common, this release takes advantage of that if present and provides support for up to 62 languages on 64-bits environments and 30 languages on 32-bits platforms. This feature is supported across both Symfony stack and legacy stack, and is accomplished by increasing the size of the integer field used for language bit masks. Improved storage engines still has the possibility to provide even more languages on pure Symfony stack in the future.
