Announcing WebApp 2.1.0 RC 1

September 11, 2015 by Bob Huisman   Comments (0)

After a couple of weeks beta testing we are happy to announce the first release candidate for WebApp 2.1.0. Thank you all for the feedback we received. We have been able to resolve most of these issues reported by you and can even announce some new features!

What’s new since the beta release?

Aside from quite some fixes based on the feedback the beta released we also managed to squeeze in some features that might interest you!

Server side spellchecking

Not every browser has support for automatic spell-checking, or it might have been disabled by the user. The new TinyMCE spellchecker module has been packaged as a WebApp plugin, with separate language packs for each language. We will initially publish language packs for English, German, French and Spanish.

Power paste

We’ve improved the support for retaining formatting when pasting content from another application (such as Word, PDF and webpages). From WebApp 2.1.0 RC1 the power paste plugin is included in the release packages. This plugin takes care of a clean import of content from other applications, while retaining as much formatting as possible, including, but not limited to fonts, sizes, colors, tables and images.

Signature templating from user directory

A lot of organizations keep their user directory up to date with all the latest user details. This new version of WebApp can use the information in your user directory to generate a signature for the user on the fly. Details and a list of variables can be found in our documentation.

Advanced search improvements

The beta release already provided you with the new and improved Advanced Search, leveraging the features introduced with search-plus in ZCP 7.2. The user interface in WebApp has further improved and Advanced Search is now enabled for all contexts, you can sort your search results for up to 500 results and the previews have improved.

And more…

  • Warning when navigating away
  • Configurable pre- and suffixes for contacts
  • Improved support for inline images

By the way, did you see the list of new features that was already introduced with the release of the beta package?
