Release notes

Please see my blog post at http://www.angrydonuts.com for some discussion of the new features across the Panels 3 Suite.

Please be absolutely certain that you upgrade CTools and Panels at the same time!!!!!

  • Deprecated the callback-based 'defaults' in favor of the identical 'process' (plugin system). Consequently, moved the content_type plugin over to use 'process' instead of the 'defaults' callback.
  • Added a ctools.api.php file and began documenting some of our api/hooks there.
  • Changed all hook_ctools_plugin_directory() implementations to use the more informative variable naming scheme.
