# 🚀 Chevereto v4.0.6 released

Patch release 4.0.6 fixes a lot of bugs, introduces PHP 8.2 support and provides great new features for Chevereto V4 that will extend the use-scope for your installations.

Review Chevereto v4.0.6 release notes for a quick summary.

# Semantics

Chevereto v4.0.6 introduces support for custom content semantics, which enables to configure the terms used for all content labels including images, albums, categories and more.

Semantics listing

For example, if you want to offer goods with Chevereto you could change "Album" to "Product", "Categories" to "Brands" and "Users" to "Clients". If you are using Chevereto for managing media assets you could change "Images" to "Samples" or "Photos". There's no limits, you define the context.

Semantics settings

With semantics you can now bend Chevereto to wrap your content and context the exact way you want, providing a more engaging experience for your users.

# Call-to-action buttons

Chevereto v4.0.6 introduces customizable call-to-action (CTA) buttons for albums, which enables to create extra buttons that will be shown at the album view and when viewing images belonging-to.

# Added support for RTL languages

There are great news for Arabic, Hebrew, Persian and all the right-to-left languages as Chevereto v4.0.6 greatly improves the user experience for these. User interface now looks the way it should be for users of these languages.


All margins, borders, padding and alignments have been revisited, the entire user interface is now RTL compatible in a degree never seen before.

# New profile display

User profile display has been improved and now the user avatar shows on center of the viewport. What we are seeking with this is to give top priority for the user at its profile page.
