ESB 22.07 Released

Pentagull is pleased to announce the release of version 22.07 of the ESB platform. This release continues the recent trend of incremental improvements to reliability and usability as well as a fundamental design change.

What’s new for 22.07?

The new self service form renderer is now available, which includes several upgrades as it’s faster and more responsive. In addition to this, the new renderer also entails improved accessibility on the forms with a better contrast, an example being the new colour palette which enables the hyperlinks to be more visible.

What's new for System Configurators?

The upgrade features a new appearance and refreshed design with a new colour palette for the back-office system, helping improve accessibility. The 22.07 release also enables the ability to move easily with a more responsive design. This will be particularly useful for users on mobile phones or tablets as the improved design will better support devices with varying screen sizes. Another addition is the “date sent” column in the email log viewer.

We are horrified by what’s going on in Ukraine, as I'm sure you are. Particularly cutting are the scenes showing young children and families fleeing a war zone or worse. At least 3 million people have fled their homes to escape conflict in Ukraine. Leaving behind jobs, belongings and loved ones, they now face an uncertain future. This morning we made a donation to the Disasters Emergency Committee.
