Summary: This is our first dedicated bug stomp. No new features here, we’re just fixing the little things you find most annoying or aggravating because we probably do too.
Just a few weeks ago, we launched task management as a part of our summer release. On September 9, we squashed some bugs. There are over 100 updates and fixes included in this dedicated bug stomp, and many were reported by you, our customers. We'll be following up to close out these open discussion threads, but here's a quick look at some of the highlights of last night's release.
Inline preview: The document preview functionality now supports additional file types. Not only can you upload basic Open XML formats for Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint, but now XML files that contain macros are also supported (i.e. .pptm, .docm, .xlsm). We have added a plain text preview of some web developer friendly file types as well (.html, .htm, .md, .js and .css), and we're working on adding more. Let us know if there's a file type that you'd like us to support.
WYSIWYG editor: We upgraded our installation of TinyMCE (the WYSIWYG editor inside our platform) to speed up page load times. The editor appears on every page, so now you'll find page load times are a little bit snappier throughout, particularly on mobile or locations with slower internet connections.
We also fixed an iOS specific bug that prevented copying and pasting links on a mobile device. So go get that cool new iPhone 6. And if you embed content, we use scrollbars judiciously, so they're removed on video, but appear on iFrames if the widget height is not set to support the full view.
Video preview: On the theme of upgrades, we updated our video conversion software to support the latest codex. Now, you'll find even the latest and greatest video formats will preview inside your Igloo. And when you embed video, the URL will support HTTPS by default (now an Igloo standard for all).
Wikis: Wikis now display information about the original author of a post and the individual who provided the last update. This appears in the metadata area, alongside the number of views, comments, followers, as well as the version history. This applies to documents, too.
Microblogs: We cleaned up thefunctionality, so that you could more easily reference someone in your comment or status update.
Polls: More people can create them. If you have full access to a page, you can set up a poll in your Igloo. Administrator access is no longer required.
But wait, there's more ….The fixes were not just aimed at users, but administrators too.
Membership Management: The membership management role (add members) can now take advantage of bulk actions, like uploading or exporting member lists. We also made a number of fixes. Upon upload, you can add members to the administrator group, and when you export a member list, it outlines the spaces those members belong to as well as their primary and secondary email addresses. We also made a quick fix to accommodate importing birthdays in alternate formats (day/month vs. month/day).
Site Manager: If you want to create a page in your department that aggregates all calendars in one area, you can. An error message no longer occurs when you attempt to drag an app under a page, which makes managing a more complex department or project space just a little bit easier.
There's a lot here. But if you have questions about a bug that you've submitted or how we will prioritize future bug stomps, let us know in the comments below.
