This release includes a variety of new features and improvements to make your authoring, collaborating, and reviewing experience more efficient, accurate, and productive than ever before.

Choose Whether or Not to Display Content Completion on Enter

An option has been added in the General tab of the Administration page called Show content completion list when pressing Enter. If you deselect this option, the content completion list will not be displayed when the user presses the Enter key. The user still has the possibility to see the content completion list by pressing CTRL+Enter. This is useful for non-technical users that want the behavior of the Enter key to be similar to that of a standard word processor.

Accepting or Rejecting Tracked Changes is Now Easier

It is now easier (and faster) to accept or reject tracked changes since the actions are now directly available in the Review panel, rather than being accessed from a menu drop-down button.

Allow Access to Git Repositories Without Requiring Credentials

A master account can be configured for the Git connector so that users don't have to login to edit documents. All operations will be recorded as being made by the user of that master account.

Option to Send Pull Requests to Git Repositories Even if You Already have Commit Access

When committing to a Git repository and you have commit access, you now have the option to create a pull request. In the past, only users without commit access had this option.

Framework Extensions Can Reuse the Base JS Code

Now you can add JavaScript files to a framework extension without copying the ones in the base framework.

JavaScript API to Set Client-Side Options

The workspace.setOption() and workspace.getOption() API can be used to set or access client-side options.

Option to Disable Auto Validation

You now have the ability to disable the automatic validation. You can implement this setting either by using an API or through the application's options.xml file.

Option to Disable the Tooltip at the Cursor Position

You can now set an option through an API to disable the tooltip popup that is normally displayed at the cursor position in various instances.
