Are you on an earlier version Episerver CMS and don't know if you should upgrade or not? Have a look at the below content and see all the nice features you're missing if you don't.
(Hover over a feature to see in which version it was released.)
Part of another project notification When you have a project (for example 'Project 1') enabled and open a page that has another draft belonging to another project ('Project 2'), you will get a notification: Hopefully, this notification prevents you from creating multiple drafts in different projects by mistake.
Projects in the notification are clickable Projects in the notification are clickable: By clicking a project name, you switch project and the project overview opens. Thanks to this, you can quickly access projects related to the current content.
Version gadget displays project name When the content version belongs to a project, the name of the project is displayed in the Versions gadget: Especially when working with multiple projects, the Versions gadget is very useful to get a good overview of the different versions and which projects they belong to.
In Project Overview, the Show comments icon is changed to the same one used for the Comments pane shown outside of projects.
Notifications in the user interface are now automatically marked as read when the notification window is closed. This improves the notification feature as the notification counter in the bell icon is reset after you open and close the notification window and will only display new notifications after that. Previously, the counter was cleared when you closed the window but the number was displayed again when the page was reloaded, unless you manually marked them as read.
The following improvements have been added to the date/time picker:
The image property now comes with a thumbnail that makes it easier for you to see which image is actually used. You can also drag and drop images from the assets pane or from your computer straight into the image property.
To make content collaboration and communication easier, you can now add and view comments on content items, even if they are not associated with a project. The commenting functionality is accessed via a new commenting pane in the user interface. Toggle the pane with a toolbar button.
In the Select Image dialog box, you can now upload an image (by the context menu or by drag and drop) and then insert it on your page without having to leave the dialog. In this dialog box, you can also move images between folders, copy, and rename images, etc.
Episerver World will occasionally publish RSS notifications on new Episerver features or other useful information. You will get a notification in the user interface (in the bell icon) whenever a new post has been published. Clicking on the notification will take you to an article on World.
The "beta/domUpdated" message introduced in CMS UI 11.2.0 is no longer needed. The On-Page Editing (OPE) overlays are now updated automatically. See John-Philip Johansson's blog post and Editing user interface in the Episerver CMS Developer Guide.
