Craft 3.7.38 was released today, with bug fixes and miscellaneous improvements.
We’ve been hard at work on the Craft 4 beta, with two new releases since the last issue. Craft 4.0.0-beta.4 introduced a few exciting new features, including the ability to disable native element sources in element indexes, support for overriding most config settings using environment variables, and more.
Check out the Craft 4 FAQ, and visit craftcms.com/demo to spin up the Europa and Spoke & Chain demos—there’s a new option to use the Craft and Commerce 4 betas.
Commerce 3 had two releases tagged since the last edition, now at 3.4.14.
Commerce 4 just reached beta 2, with a Commerce-4-compatible Stripe 3.0.0-beta.1. We’re working on Commerce 4 compatibility for our first-party payment gateway plugins.
