What's New in Omeka S
Changes in Version 3.0.0
Switch from Zend Framework to Laminas
The Zend Framework library that underlies much of Omeka S has changed its name going forward to Laminas. This change affects the names of all Zend Framework classes, and so most modules will need to be updated accordingly.
For most modules, the process is simple: just a find-and-replace for
Laminas\ across the module's code. You should find that this
replacement nearly exclusively affects
use statements, leaving your actual
code mostly unchanged. Configuration keys that referenced "Zend" names are
another common place that would be changed.
After making this change, a module will only be compatible with Omeka S 3.0.0
and up, and not any older versions. Accordingly, the
in config/module.ini should be set to
Resource templates store multiple data types per property
Version 3.0.0 adds a feature that allows resource templates to configure a property with multiple data types, letting the user choose between them when adding or editing resources.
This means that the
data_type column and
dataType property for the
ResourceTemplateProperty entity are now arrays instead of simple strings, and
the ResourceTemplatePropertyRepresentation class now has new methods
dataTypeLabels to handle multiple types. The prior "singular"
versions of those methods are still available, but are deprecated: they will
simply return the first data type if multiple are set.
The server-side event
site_settings.form is removed. The normal
form.add_input_filters events work with the site
settings form and were already the preferred option.
A new set of server-side events is added to make it easier for modules to
add elements directly to the new "Advanced" tab for resource forms.
edit is available
on the item, item set, and media forms.
A new client-side event for resource forms triggers whenever a new property
is added to the form.
o:property-added will fire when properties are added
on initial load, by the selection of a template, or when a user explicitly
selects a property to add.
New Gulp tasks
To make it easier to align with the project's code standards, a new Gulp task
test:module:cs checks against the code standards for a module,
joining the existing
test:cs that was used to check the core. Like other
:module tasks, you can run this task from within the module's folder or
explicitly pass a module name with
For both the core and modules, new
fix:module:cs tasks are
also added. Instead of just checking against the code standards, these tasks
make the necessary changes to the codebase to bring it into alignment with
