🎨 Content Manager Customization
The Content Manager is probably one of your favorite plugin. Its purpose is to make content edition as easy as possible.
With ease must come customization.
The current version was generating the interface according to your Content Types structure. That makes the usage really confortable through a simple promise: define your Content Types and you will get an auto-generated interface to manage content.
With automation comes limitations. The farther you were going, the higher were the chances to get an interface misaligned with your expectations. For example: the displayed fields in the list view were not the ones you wanted, or the items were not in the expected order in the edit view.
Good news, with this new version you can take back control.
A brand new section has been added in the Content Manager. Thanks to it you can select items and reorder them. You can even select which fields must be searchable.
Same thing in edit view: displaying, hiding and ordering fields has never been easier!
🔐 Security improvements
Last but not least, the Users & Permissions also got its improvements.
Registering users is good. Validating their email address is better.
Security must be a primary concern when it comes to API.
Thanks to the new email confirmation feature, users need to validate their email address to be considered as authenticated.
Block malicious users
Even after email validation, users can become malicious. From now one you can block them from your Strapi dashboard and they won't be able to make any threatening action.
