In Detail

This release contains two new features which require attention if you are a theme developer or use a custom storage adapter.

Storage Adapter Changes

Breaking Changes

If you have installed a custom storage adapter, you might not able to start your blog anymore, because with 0.10.0 we require a function set for custom storage adapters (save, exists, delete and serve). We've contacted all publishers to create a new version to support the changes.

The breaking changes to the Storage Adapter API are explained in detail on the wiki page. Swing by our slack channel if you have any questions!

Theme API Changes

AMP now works out of the box with a default template, which can also be overridden by themes. For full details of how to customise this feature, see the AMP theme documentation. Also watch this space for a custom AMP theme tutorial coming very soon!

Theme uploads are now handled inside of Ghost. If you upload a broken theme, we will tell you and provide a very detailed validation error output - this is done with the help of gscan. Theme developers can test out their themes by uploading them and viewing the report on http://gscan.ghost.org.

See the theme API docs for full details of what changed in Ghost 0.10.0. The theme documentation is frequently updated with more details and better examples. Please also use the suggest edits feature if you find something is missing or out of date.

How to Upgrade

All Ghost(Pro) users are being automatically updated and will be running Ghost 0.10.0 shortly. You're welcome :)

For people running Ghost on their own servers, you can download Ghost 0.10.0 and then check out the upgrade documentation over on our support site.

Enjoy!
