Yii team released version 2.1.1 of the Twig extension. Changes are the following:
Htmlhelper in templates. You can find more details in the guide. Without the extension it was not possible to use methods such as
addCssClass()because of Twig limitations.
This version was worked on by new Twig extension maintainer, Anton Gubarev (@amarox). He's using the extension is his projects and volunteered to both polish it to perfection and develop it further.

Finally – with this LUYA release, the new admin UI is available!
It took us almost half a year to develop and integrate the new admin UI. We rewrote all HTML and CSS files on the basis of the Bootstrap 4 framework (which will make it easier for developers to style their own extensions to the LUYA backend). There was also plenty of work involved adapting the AngularJS scripts.
Initially we had planned to release LUYA version 1.0.0 at this time, but the new admin UI brings too many changes, so that we are depending on all LUYA developers to report bugs and missing features. Therefore this is RC4.
What else has been done?
We think that with this release – which encompasses over 700 commits! – we have taken LUYA a big step forward towards the goal of being one of the most versatile and easy-to-use content management systems and web application toolboxes in the Yii and PHP universes.
Let us know about your LUYA projects! We will happily feature them on the luya.io website. For ways to contact us, see below.
If you have any problems or questions regarding the upgrade process, don't hesitate to create an issue on GitHub.
