ctools 7.x-1.6-rc1

Release notes

This release of cTools includes most of the RTBC issues from the 7.x release. There is a mix of new features and bug fixes.

Because of the amount of RTBC issues, we're doing a RC1 release first to make sure there are no regressions. While all the patches passed tests and a smoke test, there could be issues and we want to make sure everything is stable before rolling a 1.6 release.

After a 2 to 3 week test, we will roll a full 1.6 release. If you want to help out, ping japerry in irc.freenode.net #drupal-panels or #drupal-contribute!

Release notes

With this release of CTools, we are very close to a real, stable release.


  • Numerous incomplete updates from D6 to D7 on various content types. Many of these have been very hard to spot on code reviews.
  • #1142812: Make sure export.inc is loaded during #ajax operations.
  • #1118570: In Views, sometimes modals would hide because of missing -wrapper ids.
  • #1201904: Allow picking the delta in relationships that can contain multiple values.
  • #1012722: Fix node add form context to really actually work.
  • #1193886: node edit form often only has "Form goes here" due to bad recursion prevention code.
  • #1206230: Really allow exposed form in block. Requires matching commit from Views to work, but should no longer break anything.
  • #870938 Update "php" setting to PHP module for ability to import Views.
  • #1191566 by dereine: Use contextual link instead of tab for "edit panel".

Full list of changes since 7.x-1.0-beta1:

  • #1224340: Allow multiple jump menu to same destination.

Release notes

Numerous bug fixes, and some new stuff to help facilitate Views integration. Proper entity integration. Panels node form now supports entity fields, making node forms much nicer than they were in D6.

If you update CTools and are running Panels, please be sure to update Panels at the same time.

Release notes

Lots of bug fixes from alpha1.

Noteworthy known broken issues:
taxonomy page does NOT WORK.
node add/edit form overrides do NOT WORK.
Entity support was added and not very well tested, so there are probably rough edges there.

Release notes

This is the first alpha release of the Chaos Tool Suite for Drupal 7.

The bulk of this porting work was done at a sprint sponsored by Chapter Three, iO1, and Commerce Guys at the Commerce Guys facility in San Francisco, California, in September. Because we did not complete our agenda during the sprint, we continued to work as best we could for the next few weeks in a git repository.

For module developers relying on Chaos Tools for their modules, please read the UPGRADE.txt file to see what changes need to be made to get your code working with CTools. This is in addition to any changes requires by Drupal core, which are extensive.

While this release has completed the porting of all major functionality, many minor bits of functionality have not been ported. This list includes, but is not limited to the following items:

  • Most content types have not been tested. In particular, content types and contexts related to CCK and taxonomy or anything else that has been superceded by the new field API almost certainly will be broken.
  • The option to disable Drupal regions when displaying a page does not yet work.
  • Block content types are miscategorized. We have not yet updated the categorization of blocks.
Official release from tag: 

ctools 6.x-1.7

Release notes

Please see my blog post at http://www.angrydonuts.com for some discussion of the new features across the Panels 3 Suite.

Please be absolutely certain that you upgrade CTools and Panels at the same time!!!!!

  • Deprecated the callback-based 'defaults' in favor of the identical 'process' (plugin system). Consequently, moved the content_type plugin over to use 'process' instead of the 'defaults' callback.
  • Added a ctools.api.php file and began documenting some of our api/hooks there.
  • Changed all hook_ctools_plugin_directory() implementations to use the more informative variable naming scheme.
  • #817612 by elstudio: Fix validation error that was making it impossible to add 'Existing node' content_types.
  • #787644 by Amitaibu and merlinofchaos: Introduce export-ui and auto-submit. See API.txt for more.
  • Update the plugin system documentation, and clean up plugin system logic.
  • #827498: Allow the 'custom' content type to be re-usable and exportable.
  • #827370 by dereine: Allow the new auto-submit.js to allow a single class that causes every element in the form to auto-submit.
