Backdrop CMS version 1.12 is here! The Backdrop community is proud to release this most recent version, following our 4-month release cycle. This version of Backdrop includes lots of great new features including:

  • Backdrop core can now self-update.
  • Views grids now use CSS grids.
  • Better use of iconography throughout core.
  • Translatable taxonomy terms.
  • Tags for modules (in addition to packages).
  • A simpler way to provide options for selects, radios, and checkboxes.
  • A contact form block.
  • New APIs for translating config strings.
  • All the fixes from version 1.11.4 which was also released today.

Notes for updating:

  • If you are using the Options Element module, that module will need to be disabled before upgrading.
  • It will be necessary to run the update script (located at /update.php) for this release.
  • This release does not modify files outside the core directory. Updating customized copies of those files is not necessary.
