Main packages
This release information lists updated main package versions for the Episerver platform. When a release is built, other dependent packages also may be bumped to new versions, although they contain no publicly visible changes. This is done to avoid dependency errors. When you upgrade, NuGet alerts you to upgrade related packages to the required versions. For Commerce, it is important to ensure that you are running the same version of CMS and Commerce, both in the front-end and back-end applications.

Content_32.svgEpiserver CMS UI

    New feature:

      • CMS-14304: Support for opening action items in a new window
        The new navigation broke PopupMenuItem functionality, as the items no longer opened in a new window.
        In general, window.open should be avoided as it is bad for accessibility and can have performance implications. Instead, you should set target="_blank" for action items in the new navigation to support opening in a new window.
        For this reason, PopupMenuItem should be obsoleted, and the use of UrlMenuItem with the Target property set should be promoted.

      Commerce_32.svgEpiserver Commerce

      New features:

        • COM-9985: Introduce a simple batch-saving API
          A simple batch-saving API is needed to improve performance in case validations, events, and versions are not required.
        • COM-9588: Incremental product exports
          A new feature exports your product feed (catalog) to Episerver Perform incrementally. This scheduled job (Export product feed incrementally) keeps Episerver Personalization up-to-date with product changes without exporting the entire catalog.
        • COM-9704: Change currencies and markets
          On the Customer Service Representative screen, a customer support rep can change the market and/or currency of the cart or order.
        • COM-9236: Allow for using multiple channel tokens
          This feature lets you tag tracking requests with a channel.
          A channel identifies the type of application or device that a site visitor uses. Standard values are "web" and "mobileweb".

      Personalization_32.svgEpiserver Personalization

      New feature:

        • PROF-4744:Visitor Group implementation for filtering segments
          Segments based on tracking events are now available in visitor groups.

      Addons_32.svgEpiserver add-ons

      New feature:

        • MAI-1707: Choose behavior of multiple form submissions in same session
          Previously, multiple form submissions in the same session updated the entity created on the first submission. Now you can change this behavior to create a new entity on every submission, similar to the way the Salesforce, Pardot, and Marketo connectors work.
          Use a drop-down box on the admin settings screen to choose the desired behavior.
