ESB 20.01 Released

Pentagull is pleased to announce the immediate availability of version 20.01 of the ESB platform. This release primarily focuses on new features and enhancements to existing features. We are continuing our migration from ASP.NET web forms to MVC, and this release makes significant progress in this area.

What's new for End-Users

The name of the Documents tab that appears when viewing an item can now be customised. This is particularly useful when the default name does not make sense given a particular context.

If an item has been created via the self-service portal and it has documents attached to it, these will now show up amongst the form fields in the same place that the File Upload fields were placed on the self-service forms. This means that you no longer have to go to the Documents tab to access links to the associated documents.

What's new for System Configurators

There are numerous improvements to the System Configuration module, and the entire Manage Users module has been migrated to MVC. While the look and feel remains similar, we have taken the opportunity to clean up the overall appearance and functionality of the module.

What's new for Developers

There are a number of minor changes to various API methods to further enhance the capabilities of the core API – please see the release notes for full details.

Further Reading

A complete set of changes can be found in the Technical Release Notes available via the ESB Agile Discussion Forum. If you are a Pentagull customer you will receive this release in accordance with your agreed release schedules. Should you have any questions about this release, please contact your account manager or reach out to us at hello@pentagull.co.uk.
