ESB 21.01 Released
ESB 21.01 Released
Pentagull is pleased to start the year with the release of version 21.01 of the ESB platform.
There are performance improvements, continued technology updates and new enhancements.
What's new for End-Users
We’ve replaced the e-mail composer page with a new one written using MVC. This is more responsive than the legacy web forms version and will allow us to easily add more features in future releases. This new version needs to be enabled by system configurators before it can be used, so this is a great release to try it out on a select number of processes. It looks and feels just like its predecessor so there shouldn’t be any nasty surprises for your users.
We’ve introduced an in-memory cache for business rules and shutdown days – this will help to reduce the number of database calls made for frequently accessed objects and ultimately make the product more snappy – particularly in busy environments with many thousands of object templates.
The Self-Service portal has received some accessibility fixes as part of our aim to move from AA to full AAA compliance.
What's new for System Configurators
We’re continuing our migration to MVC and in this release it’s the Form Field editor on sub forms that’s been moved over from web forms to MVC. If you’re designing self-service forms you now have some extra options for list field types: You can render them as radio button lists either horizontally or vertically. Note that for now this is only supported on the self service portal and your lists will still show in the traditional way when viewed in the back office.
What's new for Developers
The API has been updated with a couple of tweaks to method signatures in order to improve consistency across the various elements of the platform.
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.
