  • Support for PDF/A in .NET
    • To use, edit pdfreport.ini and add one of these lines: 
      • ComplianceLevel= pdf_a1b

April 3rd, build 170864

  • Java: Tomcat 10.1 and Servlet 6 support added
  • Import design: Support for shadows in Web
  • Nuget is supported as a Modules Server type. As of now, the Nuget repository manager is recommended for storing modules, because it automatically handles dependencies. If you have on Nuget a Module A that depends on B, that depends on C, then, when you install A on a KB, it automatically brings B and C. This simplifies module management and usage enormously.
  • Cosmos DB support in Java too
  • Unanimo: Dark mode in Native Mobile

  • RTL
    • Support for RTL in Unanimo, and improvements in the generators related to RTL support
    • Now in Unanimo and Web Panels, you don't need to use SetTheme() + SetLanguage(); just with SetLanguage() it is enough because Unanimo (and every Design System with Base CSS = none) automatically chooses the minimum bootstrap CSS that is required for RTL or LTR. The web generators generate the HTML dir attribute to indicate rtl or ltr
  • Deploy sources feature in .NET available for targets 'local' and 'Microsoft Azure serverless (backend services)' through new property Packate Type with values Binaries, Sources.
