The password policy rules are available in the Administration > Users & Rights > Registration.

Miscellaneous

  • Live storage of job log: The log of the job is now stored on the filesystem next to the statux.xml in live:

    • very low memory footprint
    • it's possible to see the log even of the status is not yet serialized

For Developers

Live storage of job log


JobStatus#getLog() is now deprecated and replaced by JobStatus#getLogTail() which provide more streamed APIs to navigate in the log.

Miscellaneous

  • Document default locale: Added a script API to set the document default locale

  • Execution context push/pop: Helpers has been adding in ExecutionContextManager to have a better control on the way to push/pop ExecutionContext instances. See Context Module for more details.
