FORMCYCLE 5.0.18

Version 5.0.18 (Release at 05.12.2018)

System changes

  • ATTENTION: Due to licensing and organizational reasons, database drivers will no longer be delivered. These must now be installed separately manually. (see 5.0.13)

Feature/Changes

Bug-Fixes

  • When exporting XML in the mailbox, a optional selected XSL template is now correctly applied again
  • When uploading and running SQL scripts in the management interface of database connections, the uploaded file is now treated as UTF-8 encoded. Here before the platform coding was used.

  • When activating another form version, the URLs for the designer and the preview in the form menu are now updated immediately after saving.

Version 4.4.2 (HOTFIX 4 vom 31.08.2016)

Systemänderung

  • Achtung: Um eine höhere W3C-Konformität zu erreichen wurde bei Formularen der Lademechanismus von JavaScript-Ressourcen angepasst. Diese werden nun (falls verfügbar) im HTML-Header eingebunden. Hieraus ergeben sich ggf. nötige Anpassungen bezüglich der Ausführung/Registrierung Kunden-spezifischer JavaScript-Funktionalitäten. Diese sollten nun vorzugsweise innerhalb eines $(document).ready()-Statements ausgeführt werden.
  • Durch den Wechsel der LDAP-Bibliothek ist es ggf. nötig bei den NTLM-LDAP-Daten die Domain beim Benutzernamen anzugeben (z.B.: @xima.de)
  • Eine Aktualisierung des Frontend-Servers in zwingend notwendig (wegen Inkompatibilität der Schnittstelle)Menüänderung:
  • FORMCYCLE > System > NTLM geändert in FORMCYCLE > System > Einmalanmeldung
  • Rechteerweiterung: Berechtigungen FORMCYCLE > Systemeinstellungen > Einmalanmeldung Kerberos
