Pulling Ahead with dotCMS 3.6.0

At dotCMS, we believe in constantly improving in order to bring you the best possible experience, which is why we’re happy to announce our latest platform upgrade, dotCMS 3.6.0.
If you're running a previous your version of dotCMS, version 3.6.0 offers several compelling reasons to upgrade, including new features that expand the capabilities of multilingual sites, enhanced cache and database performance, and improvements in the performance of the upgrade process itself.
IMPROVED MULTILINGUAL SUPPORT
Version 3.6.0 adds to dotCMS’s array of multilingual features with the addition of full support for multiple language versions of the same files, a new translation workflow action to automate translation tasks against Google’s API, and the addition of Finnish language translation for the dotCMS backend.
NEW H2 CACHE
In a previous dotCMS release, we introduced powerful new caching features, including cache chains, new cache providers such as Redis, and the ability to implement your own custom cache providers. dotCMS 3.6.0 further enhances cache performance and scalability, and introduces a new self-healing H22 cache that significantly improves upon the original H2 cache with improved performance, scalability, configurability, and error handling, and automatic recovery after repeated errors.
dotCMS 3.6.0 also offers streamlined and improved database performance which is especially useful for larger sites. We've also streamlined the dotCMS code base: a number of database tables, libraries, and settings which are no longer used have been removed, reducing the footprint and improving performance.
Finally, dotCMS 3.6.0 offers an upgrade to the ElasticSearch engine, integrated markdown support, and several new features, including the ability to delete unused user accounts.
