ESB 20.10 Released

Pentagull is pleased to announce the immediate availability of version 20.10 of the ESB platform. The focus of the 20.10 release is on stability and fixes, however we’ve still found time to add some great new features.

What's new for End-Users

We’ve added the ability for the Self-Service portal to integrate with third party authentication providers that use the SAML2 or OAuth2 protocol. This means you can offer single sign-on to major providers like Google and Facebook.

What's new for System Configurators

You can now add your own system-wide regular expressions for use in your form fields. This means you only need to define your expression in one place, and using it is simply a case of selecting it from a list. If you need to update your expression at a later date, any form fields that use it will automatically be updated with the revised version.

What's new for Developers

The Infrastructure DLL has been updated to a version that includes overloads for the core database helper functions that don’t require the SqlConnection object to be passed by reference.

The Jquery plug-in has been updated to v3.5.1.

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 schedule. Should you have any questions about this release, please contact your account manager, or reach out to us at hello@pentagull.co.uk.
