Sense/Net 6.3 Community Edition
Sense/Net 6.3 is a major release with a plethora of new features. After Sense/Net 6.3 Beta Community Edition we are pleased to publish the final, stable version. Please review the changes and new features since Sense/Net 6.2 and give a feedback on our forum
Main new features
- Security improvements
- Microsoft Office 2013 support
- Query builder
- LINQ to Sense/Net
- OData REST API improvements
- Document Viewer and generating preview images (only in the Enterprise edition due to 3rd party licensing limitations)
- Settings infrastructure
We designed the default settings in Sense/Net 6.3 to be very secure. You can decide to open up parts of your site for certain groups of users (even to visitors), but by default only administrators have access to critical information.
In Sense/Net ECM one of the most powerful features is Content Query
. To prevent users from being able to inject malicious queries into the system, we introduce prepared queries in this release, which are safe to use.
Document Viewer and generating preview images
Open and view virtually any kind of document in a browser, without having to download them and open a client application (e.g. Microsoft Word). Due to third party licensing limitations, document conversion is only available in Sense/Net Enterprise. The standalone Document Viewer module however, is included in Sense/Net Community.
Microsoft Office 2013 support
Previous versions of Sense/Net already supported Office 2010; now you can open documents (for example Word or Excel files) from the portal (or using WebDAV) and edit them directly using Microsoft Office 2013
Tired of writing content queries manually? We just made that easier by providing a way for users and portal builders to create powerful queries with a few clicks.
LINQ to Sense/Net Content Repository
In this release we are introducing LINQ to Sense/Net to give developers and portal builders the well-known intuitive tools for querying content from Sense/Net Content Repository.
OData REST API improvements
The OData REST API lets you talk to the Sense/Net Content Repository using standard tools like Kendo UI's popular components or custom AJAX solutions. In the previous release we introduced a basic OData functionality and expand, select and filter system query options. In this new version we added support for the remaining OData system query options. We have also created Sense/Net ECM specific custom actions and functions for collaboration and more sophisticated permission handling.
With this release we have full support for OData v3.0 with JSON verbose response format.
In previous versions you had to put every setting and configuration value to the web.config. From now on Sense/Net ECM provides a Settings infrastructure that lets you manage your global and local (e.g. workspace level) settings in the Content Repository. This eliminates the need for system restarts when changing settings and makes your web.config file smaller and more readable.
