ESB 21.04 Released

Pentagull is delighted to announce the release of version 21.04 of the ESB platform. This release includes a range of incremental improvements in the areas of system configuration. There are also a number of technology improvements including use of updated Jquery and Bootstrap libraries and some security hardening.

What's new for End-Users?

If you have self-service forms that require users to log into their account before completing them, you can now display a custom message on the login page explaining why the user needs to authenticate before continuing.

What's new for System Configurators?

We’ve introduced a new type of sub forms known as In-line. When you add an in-line sub form, the fields will appear as if they were normal form fields, and you can refer to them as if they were regular form fields from your business rules. But if you make any changes to the sub form such as adding, deleting or renaming fields, these changes will automatically take effect across all the object templates where the sub form is used. Think of inline sub forms as like a template that you can re-use across many object templates.

The Manage Users module has received a couple of enhancements: You can now export the recent activity list to a CSV file, and you can now re-send any previously sent e-mail messages – great for users who’ve accidentally deleted an email.

What's new for Developers?

The gov.uk notify component has been updated to the latest v4.x release. There have also been updates to query and bootstrap, but these should all be backwards compatible and shouldn’t require any manual intervention. We’ve hardened our security by no longer emitting the ASP.NET MVC version number on both the self-service and core web applications. This shouldn’t have any negative impact but has the advantage of providing one less piece of information to potential attackers.

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.
