ITS is happy to announce the immediate availability of UT Drupal Kit 2.20.0, the latest maintenance release for our University distribution of the Drupal web content management system. This release includes a Drupal core update, several contrib module updates, and a bugfix for print behavior of tables. Additionally, the Media Vimeo module is now enabled by default.
DRUPAL CORE UPDATE
The 2.20 release incorporates the most recent release of Drupal Core, bringing it up to the latest version (7.68).
The 2.20 release includes updates to the following contrib modules:
- Administration Views (version 7.x-1.7 – release notes)
- Field Collection (version 7.x-1.1 – release notes)
- File Entity (version 7.x-2.27 – release notes)
- Link (version 7.x-1.7 – release notes)
- Media (version 7.x-2.24 – release notes)
- Media Vimeo (version 7.x-2.1 – release notes)
- Media YouTube (version 7.x-3.9 – release notes)
- Nodequeue (version 7.x-2.2 – release notes)
- Role Delegation (version 7.x-1.2 – release notes)
BUG FIX FOR RESPONSIVE TABLES
The UTexas Tablesaw Filter, which is responsible for dynamically generating responsive table displays via the Filament Group’s Tablesaw Library, was converting tables to a responsive display when webpages were being printed. To fix this issue, Tablesaw responsive behavior is now excluded from print stylesheets so that tables will print using the default “desktop” styling.
MEDIA VIMEO ENABLED BY DEFAULT
The Media Vimeo contrib module has been included with the UT Drupal Kit since the initial 2.0 release, but was not enabled by default. The 2.20 release includes an update hook to enable the Media Vimeo module on existing sites, and it will also be enabled by default on all new installations.
This module allows video sources from the Vimeo streaming service to be used in Media Library objects. This functionality was already provided for YouTube by the Media YouTube module.
