Sorting page and block types not working.

Due to a previous bug, block types were sorting alphabetically, regardless of the order that a developer has specified. This has been fixed with CMS-16067.

(CMS-16067) - Product: Episerver User Interface v 11.30.0

Put back the Globe.

To the chagrin of seasoned Episerver developers and editors, Episerver had removed a former feature that allowed users to open the current page in a new tab or window. With this update, the globe has returned!

(CMS-14949) — Product: Episerver User Interface v 11.30.0

Update TinyMCE to 4.9.11.

Episerver’s UI has been updated to reflect changes in the most recent V4 version of the rich-text editor TinyMCE.

(CMS-16314) — Product: Episerver TinyMCE v 2.13.0

Re-enable feature IL generated content models.

A bug in a previous update was causing problems with Search & Navigation (formerly Episerver Find). This update fixes this bug.

(CMS-16388) — Product: Episerver Core v. 11.19.0

Additional dynamic proxy types as a result of CMS-15856 are impacting search.

An error in Episerver Find was causing non-real items to be indexed within search, which had the potential to affect the license level of participating Find users. They have adjusted this so that fewer items are indexed.

(FIND-8423) — Product: Episerver Find v. 13.2.9

Reduce workload of promotion engine by improving cache usage / Improve promotion engine performance.

Two features have been updated within Episerver Commerce — specifically with the promotion engine — to increase performance through optimization and more aggressive caching.
