Discover's 2.3 feature patch is ready and is now rolling out to users!
The release notes are below in all of their glory and, if you love nerding out, check out our full feature release timeline because we have much to share with you.
Features, Changes, and Enhancements.
Added: Brand new render engine resulting in vastly improved performance:
Display launch and refresh times reduced.
Reduced the transition for displays in a playlist to near zero.
Added: New interactive screen controls so users can play/pause, skip to the next/previous display, maximise/minimise the browser window, or select a display directly from the playlist.
Updated: Display tenants and templates can now be changed after a display has been created thanks to the new render engine.
Added: New “Blink” threshold class animation.
Updated: Threshold Class animations moved from the element editor to the threshold class editor so users can select unique animations based on severity.
Changed: The name of the “Flash” threshold class animation to “Pulse” and refined the animation keyframes to make it more attention grabbing.
Updated: Users can now create threshold classes without colours, applying animations only to elements in the display.
Added: New “By Agent” filter method so users can now select agents during filter creation and queues will be added to the filter automatically based on the agent’s queue assignments.
Changed: The name of the “Explicit Queue” filter method to “By Queue” to compliment the new “By Agent” filter method and make its function clearer to new users.
Removed: Hybrid filtering method as it’s been superseded by the superior “By Agent” and “By Queue” filter methods.
Updated: Data Dictionary Manager and Agent State Editor UI colour presentation to improve accessibility for users suffering colour blindness.
Updated: The navigation and interaction experience throughout the UI to reduce friction for existing users and significantly improve the new user experience.
Updated: All information, warning, error, and toast messages throughout the UI to improve clarity and make administration faster and more intuitive.
Added: New delete interactions to the UI so administrators cannot accidentally delete important assets or delete assets without fully understanding the impact.
Added: Release Notes and version history to the About page so users can see what’s new.
Added: New hide filter functionality to displays using more than one filter, so now users can hide the parts of a display they don’t need.
Added: New buttons to the filter creator and editor so users can now view only selected content, unselected content, or all content as well as clear the contents of a filter with the “Clear Selected” button.
Added: Users can now edit or create new threshold classes directly from the element editor, no more back tracking through the Data Manager.
Added: New “Refresh All Sessions” and “End All Sessions” actions to the Active Sessions form so admin users can perform these actions much faster than before.
Added: The ability to disabled email features and UI references to those features for deployments on secure networks.
Wallboard and Dashboard Templates.
Added: List page labels back into all template using lists.
Added: Two new template designs.
Agent Status and Detail
Queue Status and Detail
Bug Fixes and Optimisations.
Added: New error handling and automatic recovery processes for displays and screens so users can get back up and running quickly if something goes wrong.
Updated: The drag and drop behaviour for creating playlists in the screen editor so it’s now a much more pleasant experience.
Fixed: A bug where the timestamp for the user account lockout was being shown in UTC instead of the server time zone.
Fixed: Message scheduling feature defaulting the start/date time to the date and time the message was originally created which was potentially confusing for users.
Optimised: Error handling and automated recover for live displays and screens where filters, threshold classes, or images are removed.
