v4.7.8 release

Release date: May 31, 2023

v4.7.8 has six bug fixes, nine improvements, and three new features.

Significant new features

  • The Shelf now includes only those content types that can be added to the current asset in the content edit form. For example, if a content edit form has a single field for a list of videos, the editor can configure The Shelf to include only videos.
  • The Content Types widget has a new search control for listing editorial content types. Editors can use this listing to see the assets based on an editorial content type.
  • Added support for Lit decorators in TypeScript.

Significant improvements

  • Improved display of an image's Colors widget.
  • The Java Server Page number.jsp was deleted following a previous migration to the NumberFormInput class.
  • Deleted the deprecated Java Server Page metric.jsp.
  • The Java Server Page region.jsp was migrated to the RegionFormInput class.
  • The Java Server Page permissions.jsp was migrated to the PermissionsFormInput class.
  • The Java Server Page login.jsp was migrated to the Login class.
  • The Java Server Page reset-password.jsp was migrated to the ResetPasswordPage class.
  • Deleted the deprecated Java Server Page sharePreview.jsp.
  • Implemented Google Analytics 4 for reporting at the site, search, and asset levels.

Significant defects addressed

  • Corrected an issue that prevented the preview pane's height from being set correctly.
  • Corrected an issue that disabled scrolling in the preview pane after updating text in the associated content edit form.
  • Corrected an issue that caused images with height greater than width to overflow their containers in the content edit form (but were resized correctly after publishing).
  • Corrected an issue that caused a static persistent query mapping to throw an error when creating a new API endpoint.
  • Corrected an issue that added extraneous whitespace characters in templates defining a prefix with the tag HBSfield.
  • Corrected an issue that caused unit tests involving WebRequest objects to fail.
