It's beginning to look a lot like Craft 3

It’s almost time. Craft 3 RC1 is scheduled for release on December 5, 2017. If that was on your wish list, you're in luck. (If you’re wondering what RC1 actually means, see Software release life cycle later in the issue.)

CLL #53 is filled with Craft CMS goodies, including fresh details on the Plugin store, loads of plugins, and plenty of dev tips. Find something you like? Give the author a shout out on Twitter or a star on Github.

Notices in Craft 3 plugins

For a plugin, in Craft 2 a user notice was initiated like this:

craft()->userSession->setNotice(Craft::t('My notice here.'));

In Craft 3 it is:

Craft::$app->getSession()->setNotice(Craft::t('pluginHandle', 'My notice here.'));
