ExpressionEngine 2.9 Released

The changes were enough that EllisLab bumped the version a full point release. ExpressionEngine 2.9, available today, includes an overhaul of the conditionals parser.

Conditionals are parsed better, simple vs. advanced conditional is now a thing of the past, and there are some nice new operators; you can do simple math and more robust comparisons.

A few other nuggets:

  • The hidden template indicator is now an underscore instead of a period.
  • A software license page in the control panel
  • Better Markdown support using Markdown Extra (yay Markdown!)
  • EE requires PHP 5.3.10 now

Read their blog post for all of the changes and, if you’re into that kind of thing, I’d also recommend perusing the changelog.
