13th May 2015

Preview of Platform UI Alpha2 during editing an image

  • Install
  • Requirements (currently same as eZ Publish Platform 5.4)
  • Upgrading: As this is a alpha release, there is no upgrade instructions yet, this is planned for Beta during the Summer.

  • Download: See, or see Install for how to install via composer.

The second alpha release of eZ Platform,15.03, builds upon the 15.01 March release adding additional support for editing- and browsing-capabilities. It also contains several underlying improvements and fixes developed for 5.3.5 and 5.4.2, that has also been released recently.

Next release is planned to be released beginning of June, and will preview several additional features currently not exposed yet.


Besides lots of smaller improvements and fixes found bellow, and mentioned above for the 5.x sub release, the main visual changes are: 

Platform UI Bundle with Universal Discovery Widget


One important feature in eZ Publish, and also now eZ Platform, is being able to browse for content you want to select. In eZ Platform we call this Universal Discovery Widget, and in this release you can see more or less the completion of first part of this with possibility to select by browsing the tree (location structure): EZP-23893 - UDW : Basic tree Closed

This is used for Relation, Relation List and Section assignment selection so far, and before July release we hope to complete this part with inclusion of EZP-24067 - Sub items widget QA

Future tentatively planned ways to browse for content includes:
