Enhancements and known issues resolved
The data model now supports the definition of aliases that can be used to define custom names for model entities and rich library items.
It is now possible for the end user to easily download the SPDRM server/client logs, through the new option "Download Logs" in the Help menu.
Files with multi-extension (e.g. ".ansa.gz") are now handled properly through MIMEtypes.
A new script function "dm.restoreDeletedItems()" has been introduced to restore deleted items that still reside in the pool of deleted objects.
Users Management - Security
Users with "Administrators" role have now full access to all scheduled jobs, including the modification of their settings.
Web Services - API
The list of active sessions returned by the "Get logged in users" web service, will now also include the ANSA/META sessions, in addition to SPDRM Client sessions.
A versioning policy has been introduced for the BETA Apps Launcher application, to ensure its compatibility with the SPDRM Server. The version information can be easily accessed through the web page:
https: <BAL_HOST>:<PORT> /version
The new optional keys "user_script_cache_size" and "user_script_cache_path" are now supported in the client's configuration file, which can be used to define the size and the path of the client-side cache of script files that are associated to script actions.
Known issues resolved
A deleted folder originally attached to a DM item would fail to be restored.
The creation of a DM item through script would fail if the target vault defined in the function arguments was different than the target vault of the current role of the user.
Web Services - API
A subsystem that was initially located in a vault different than the target vault of the current user, would not be saved properly after editing in ANSA.
