Release Notes

Sense/Net 6.1 Community Edition

Main new features:

  • major performance optimizations
  • Office 2010 and Basic authentication support
  • new main page and enhanced demo experience
The new 6.1 release is a true milestone in the history of Sense/Net ECMS. In the past few months we mostly concentrated on performance optimizations and implemented low-level features for improved scalability and robustness. We have tested the system in high availability setup under high load by conducting a benchmark during which we imported 100 million files into a single content repository. Apart from the performance boost you will experience with the newest release some long-awaited features are also included like Office 2010 support, Basic authentication support for Office integration and WebDAV and we also bring you a whole new demo experience with our new 6.1 main page.

Performance optimizations and scalability enhancements

Our main goal after the previous release was to optimize the Sense/Net Content Repository so that it earns the right to be called the fastest on Earth among enterprise content repository solutions also keeping an eye on robustness. By the end of our quest we managed to import more than 100 million files into a single content repository with an average of over 300 documents per second, with all documents indexed and searchable right away. The system performed well and error-free during the 4 day heavy-load benchmark session on a high availability setup of 3 top-notch IBM servers. Our results and the benchmark tool are public to allow our users to benchmark their own Sense/Net installations. Besides content repository speed optimizations we also concentrated on overall responsivity enhancements of the ECM system for which reason Sense/Net 6.1 includes advanced warmup features to allow more optimal performance during normal operation and a javascript/css bundling module to significantly reduce page load times.

Office 2010 support

Support for Office 2007 was already included in previous versions of Sense/Net. From now on Sense/Net ECMS also works with Office 2010 meaning you can use Microsoft Office Word/Excel 2010 to edit documents from the content repository. As a bonus, Office integration and WebDAV also work using Basic authentication, so setting up NTLM authentication for opening Office documents is not any more a strict requirement. This way you can invoke the Edit in Microsoft Office action also on sites using Forms authentication. It is worth mentioning that besides Internet Explorer you can also use Chrome and Firefox to open documents.

New main page and enhanced demo experience

For a renewed base system comes a new user interface. Besides many UI fixes we have also redesigned the main page of the default installation. All these changes serve one simple goal: we would like our new users to encounter a demo experience where everyone can easily find those features of Sense/Net ECMS that best suit his/her needs in solving business problems or building enterprise content management systems.
