Dear Sitefinity CMS customers and partners! We are excited to announce the release of Sitefinity CMS 13.3. Below you will find the details about what is included in this release.
Reinvented Shared Content UI
This release delivers new UI for the Shared Content module with feature parity. You now get the familiar benefits of the New UI when using the Shared Content module:
A new UI module to manage scheduled / background tasks
A new page in the administrative backend was added. It allows administrators to manage all scheduled tasks. They can filter and search for specific tasks, check the task status, retry failed tasks, resume and stop tasks. Other improvements include:
Advanced site access management with site-specific users and site-specific settings
Provider reuse Sitefinity CMS now implements virtual providers that enable you to efficiently share and manage data sources for each content type. These virtual providers are loaded only when used for the first time and not during system startup, which improves system load times and dramatically reduces configuration entries of providers.This feature introduces new APIs, but the creation and use of providers should remain unchanged for users.
New translation connector for Lionbridge translation service
Due to API changes, the current Lionbridge Freeway and Clay Tablet translation connectors will be deprecated by the end of 2021. To continue using the services, you must configure the new Lionbridge translation connector.
Change owner command available in AdminApp
