Other Highlights

  • TeamPage now has a pluggable API for customizing existing support for standard email protocols, or adding support for protocols beyond the usual standards (IMAP, POP3 and MBOX for message stores and SMTP for message transport).
  • Administrators can now review some statistics about existing user private drafts, including how many there are and how many owners they belong to. Administrators can also delete private drafts that are older than a certain number of years.
  • When a Work in Progress form is cancelled or closed, TeamPage now presents a clearer confirmation dialog using choice buttons labelled 'Close and Keep this Work in Progress' or 'Discard this Work in Progress'.
  • Configuration and environmental problems that were previously handled within the TeamPage core security manager are now handled by a layer over the core security manager to improve reporting and handling of non-security related conditions.
  • Fixed a bug that caused words that are very common to be added to TeamPage's fulltext index, taking up unnecessary space on disk or possibly in memory.
  • Added another line of defense against cross-site request forgery attacks in TeamPage's handling of requests for certain file manipulation operations
  • Fixed a bug that could cause TeamPage's startup to be substantially slowed down when using a custom user directory configuration that connects to an external service such as a Microsoft Active Directory server
  • Fixed a bug that could cause prevent users from sharing, tagging, commenting on or tasking certain external web pages using TeamPage's Social Enterprise Web bookmarklet (and other widgets) due to incorrect handling of certain kinds of relative URLs used in those pages' Open Graph metadata properties.
  • Fixed a bug that could prevent TeamPage from replacing inline references to automatically downloaded images with a reference to the attached image if the URL contained certain characters.
  • The EntryField SDK class and its API's have been substantially revised to add improved access to EntryField values and properties.
  • The release includes many other bug fixes and improvements. See TeamPage Change Log for a detailed list of changes from this and subsequent point releases.
