Our news

Stay up to date on all Tecnoteca initiatives and the developments of CMDBuild, CMDBuild READY2USE and openMAINT.

The new 2.4.3 release includes the following new features:

Introduction of versioning mechanism for the document content, (activity commissioned by the Staffordshire & Shropshire Health Informatics Service of the British Health Service)

The new feature provides the possibility of document versioning, through the CMIS interface already supported by CMDBuild, when it is uploaded or updated an attachment to a data card or to a process.

It is then possible to::

  • Update a document already uploaded;
  • Specify whether the new version of the uploading document should be numbered as "minor version" (1.1, 1.2, etc.) or as a "major version" (1.0, 2.0, etc.);
  • Display in the Attachment TAB of CMDBuild a new icon which will open a pop-up window, where it will appear the list of the already uploaded versions of that document;
  • Check in the pop-up window, for each version of the document, the creation, last modification and end of dates, the author, the version, the name and the file description.

Print GIS map

The CMDBuild GIS capabilities have been improved with the possibility to print the map currently displayed, with all available controls (polygonal, symbols, scale, thematism legend, etc.).

The print sizes can be customized by the user by changing a special configuration file.

The map printing is performed by using a special GeoServer plugin, tool already integrated in CMDBuild.

The functionality uses the online tool Nomitatim, available as on-line service.

Improvements in the User Interface

  1. Possibility to specify the attributes to display in the createModifyCard widget
    The createModifyCard widget (CMDBuild Workflow Manual 2.4 ENG, page 36) allows in the workflow step to view or edit a data card specified in the flow design
    The new feature allows to configure in the flow design also the list of the attributes of the card to manage the widget located in a given step of the workflow
  2. Paging the user list in the Administration Module
    The user list in the Administration Module is now paged, with search possibilities.
    This new is particularly useful when the technical users authorized to access the standard CMDBuild interface are particularly numerous.

Improvements in system authentication and logout

  1. A configuration parameter has been introduced to specify whether the CMDBuild access account should be considered "case sensitive" (differentiated according to the upper / lower case) or not.
    This is particularly useful when the authentication is delegated to external tools (such as Microsoft Active Directory) and CMDBuild should adapt to their operation mode.
  2. Possibility to specify a redirect URL at the logout.
    A configuration parameter has been introduced to specify an URL to "redirect" the browser at the logout.
    This is especially useful if the authentication is delegated to external instruments based on the Header Authentication and you want to avoid an immediate automatic re-login.
