TERMINALFOUR: 8.2.16

Date Released:
06 December 2018

General

This release focused mainly on resolving issues for Workflow, Packages and Form Builder. 

Under the ongoing Performance theme, we reduced the HTML generated for the site structure (RDSM-27335). This has had some good results:

  1. For a single collapsed section the HTML size has been reduced by 52%
  2. For a full Site Structure with 720 Sections the HTML size has been reduced by 49%

 

The following bugs were impacting many clients and priority was given to resolve them:
