Brightspot Releases

v4.5.16 release

Release date: May 31, 2023

v4.5.16 had 11 bug fixes, one new feature, and 8 improvements.

Significant new feature

  • Deployed a MarkedText TypeScript library. Developers can use this library to pass and parse marks in text sent between Brightspot and GraphQL.

Significant improvements

  • The module picker now has a search field for quickly finding a specific module or style.
  • Improved the Compare To Live feature, presenting a cleaner, more rich-text-focused comparison between revisions.
  • For editorial content types, introduced permissions on widget tabs and fields intended for developers.
  • Improved accessibility in the CMS.
  • Implemented Google Analytics 4 for reporting at the site, search, and asset levels.
  • Improved visual comparison of two revisions by suppressing HTML tags.
  • Enhancements now appear in the comparison of two revisions. For example, if Revision A has an image, and Revision B modified that image, the different images appear in the comparison.

Significant defects addressed

  • Fixed scrolling in the Add widget for adding a module.
  • Corrected an issue in which, if a workstream has some assets that are published and others that are skipped, clicking Skip continued past the last asset, displayed a blank content edit form, and displayed an incorrect sequence number.
  • Corrected an issue that prevented the preview pane's height from being set correctly.
  • Corrected an issue causing incorrect display of editorial content types. For example, an editorial content type ECT1 had a cluster, row, or tab, and any one of them had an embedded Boolean field. Subsequently, an editorial content type ECT2 had a cluster, row, or tab, and any one of them had an embedded text field. Opening the content edit form for ECT1 showed an embedded text field instead of an embedded Boolean field.
  • Corrected an issue that disabled scrolling in the preview pane after updating text in the associated content edit form.
  • Corrected an issue that allowed editors to circumvent permissions on the Module content type.
  • Corrected an issue that caused The Shelf to display native-size images instead of their thumbnails.
  • Corrected an issue that prevented new fields from being included in custom content forms. In particular, the Hidden Items widget in Edit Content Form did not include the new field, so admins could not add it to existing content forms. For example, a developer added a new field Eyebrow to the standard content type Article. Admins had no way of adding Eyebrow to custom content forms based on Article.
  • Corrected an issue that caused the preview pane to scroll to the top after making a change in the associated content edit form.
  • Corrected an issue that caused long delays in rendering The Shelf for a given asset.
  • Corrected an issue that caused unit tests involving WebRequest objects to fail.
