In Detail

This release contains a lot of under-the-hood changes on both the client and the server. On the client side, we've gotten rid of our casper.js test suite in favour of using Ember acceptance tests and begun some serious refactoring to continue our efforts improving and extending the admin panel. Meanwhile on the server there has been refactoring work in the models, middleware, frontend controller & theme handling as well as significant new features added to the API ready for public access.

Public API Access

The first phase of API access is now available as a Beta feature - meaning it lives behind a checkbox in labs. With this feature enabled, you get access to both the {{#get}} helper, and the ability to query the API via ajax from your theme.

For detailed information on the Public API Beta, please check out the developer guide.

Theme API Changes

For those who've been waiting for the {{#get}} helper, this release is your first chance to start playing with it. For the time being, it is a Beta feature as we feel it's important to collect feedback before finalising how it works. Check out the full get helper documentation.

Along side this, for the first time in 0.7.2 Ghost is providing a JavaScript function in the theme API in the form of ghost.url.api(). This function allows you to easily build URLs for ajax requests without having to pay attention to urls, protocols or client credentials. Check out the full api url builder documentation.

See the theme API docs for full details of what changed in Ghost 0.7.2. The theme documentation is frequently updated with more details and better examples. Please also use the suggest edits feature if you see something that is missing.

How to Upgrade

All Ghost(Pro) users are being automatically updated and will be running Ghost 0.7.2 shortly. You're welcome :)

For people running Ghost on their own servers, you can download Ghost 0.7.2 and then check out the upgrade documentation over on our support site.

Note: Having a correctly configured url in config.js is now a hard requirement. If you get the error Access Denied from url whilst trying to login, please see the configuration documentation.
