I've pushed into the master branch of Reason a new "site access denied" module that lets users with privileges add themselves as a site editor (or pose as a site editor) to get quick editing access.
If you are a user with the "administrator" role, you can now go from a page you want to edit on the front end to an editing interface in a couple clicks, without a visit to the Master Admin site.

We just made a small change to update_entity() (and by extension, reason_update_entity()). You can now pass a last_modified value in the update array, and the last_modified date of the entity will be set to that value. Previously update_entity ignored any last_modified value passed, always setting it to mysql NOW(). This change will not effect most code, but there is a specific case where things will change -- read the full post for details.

The Reason page_types.php defined a global variables called _reason_deprecated_page_types. The contents were a mixed bag of page_type and module names. The code that used this variable (content_managers/minisite_page.php and scripts/view_page_types.php) treated…
