Add versioning to files
This is a legacy module for Silverstripe CMS 3.
File versioning is built-in with Silverstripe CMS 4. There is currently no migration path from this module. Current file versions are handled by Silverstripe CMS’s built-in upgrade tooling. Both past file metadata versions (in
FileVersion table) and content versions (in
assets/_versions) are retained, but they’re no longer accessible via the CMS UI. If required, those versions can be retrieved by a developer.
Read the Keeping archived assets documentation article to configure your Silverstripe CMS 4 project to preserved archived files.

Translations of the natural language strings are managed through a third party translation interface, transifex.com. Newly added strings will be periodically uploaded there for translation, and any new translations will be merged back to the project source code.
