The world stands still, and yet - or perhaps because of it - a lot has happened in the Contao environment.
Every year, the Contao Core development team meets twice for a short code sprint of three days.
What lasts long, finally gets better.
Contao version 4.9.0 is available. The release contains new features such as a crawler, a SERP widget, dynamic favicon.ico and robots.txt files, image lazy loading, backup codes and trusted devices for the 2-factor authentication, access control for content elements and form fields, a new front end preview, a universal table picker and a lot more.
It was an eventful year for Contao in all respects, and we quietly bid it farewell.
