Spress 2.2.0-rc is out. Help us to test

Hello community. Last Monday 16th of January I released the first RC of Spress 2.2.0 (I think this will be the only RC). We need help for testing the new features. This version comes with a few new features such as a package manager, support for themes or the migration of Symfony components from 2.7 to 3.2. This migration could throw some excetions due to the deprecations introduced in Symfony Yaml component since version 2.8. In the coming days I'm going to update the documentation according to the new features. Additionaly, I'm going to review the themes of Spress add-ons organization on Github.

How to get the latest version of Spresso theme?

With the new package manager creating a new site based on a pre-existing theme is very easy. You just perform the following command:

$ spress new:site mysite spress/spress-theme-spresso:2.1.*-dev

Notice that -dev sufix indicates the stability of the theme. At this moment only dev stability for 2.1 is available. If Spresso theme releases a new version, to update your site to the latest version is a very easy task thanks to the newly added update:plugin command:

$ cd your-site/
$ spress update:plugin

More details about package versioning on Composer web.

Fixing the error "A colon cannot be used in an unquoted mapping value"

This error appears as a consecuence of migrations of Symfony Yaml component to 3.2. In this version certain characters such as : cannot be used in a unquoted value. To fix this problem you just surround the string literal with quotes.

How to get this version?

To get this release directly:

$ curl -LOS https://github.com/spress/Spress/releases/download/v2.2.0-rc/spress.phar
