Version 6.3 Release Notes

Release Date: March 21, 2014

Features / Enhancements

Range Filtering

Range Filters - This is a new kind of Classification that can be used for filtering data records based on the information stored in Data sites. Administrators can create Range Filters with attributes that define minimum and maximum values, which can be used to filter data where a column contains values "between X and Y", "less than X", or "greater than Y".  Examples of possible filters: Find all products with a price between $10 and $20;  Find all events between June 1 and June 30;  Find all employees with less than one year of employment; Find all documents with a size greater than 100k; etc. 

In addition, a new system-defined Range Filter, "Date Ranges", provides filter attributes for commonly understood date-based ranges, like "Today", "Tomorrow", and "Next Month". 


Data List Filter Builder

Filter Builder - Along with the new Range Filters is a new way to configure filters (Keywords, Tags, Lookups, and now Ranges) in the Data List block in the Titan workstation. Filter Builder gives administrators more control of the order of the filters and their headings.


SEO Properties Import/Export

Using the import/export functionality built for Data Sites, we've extended Titan to support import/export of the standard SEO Properties for all pages, files, data records. This data can easily be downloaded using the new SEO Properties Browse View, edited in a spreadsheet (most commonly), and uploaded through the Content Upload utility.  This feature allows administrators to make bulk updates to SEO properties for all Titan managed content types. 


Multiple Friendly URLs for a Single Page

URL Aliases - Authors and Editors may now manage more than one URL for a page, file, or data record. When pages are requested using an Alias URL, Titan resolves to the current Page URL using a 301 redirect. Previously, multiple URLs were allowed for Titan conent, but there was no easy way to manage them.  This feature can be used to support for legacy URLs after an upgrade or conversion, suppo


Other Enhancements

Data Editor Public Forms - Data Editor forms can now be used on public sites. This makes it possible to implement basic HTML forms that feed into a Data Site.

Public Display Caching for Lists - The Filter block and Data List block can be configured to cache the default public view of their content to improve site performance when presenting static lists.

Character Counters - We added character counters to the Page Name, Page Title, Metatag Description, Long Teaser and Short Teaser fields on the Properties tab. This is helpful for optimizing names and descriptions for search engines.


API Enhancements

These enhancements are targeted at developers who work with Titan.

"Please wait ... " Message - Filter blocks and Data List blocks now present a message while making asynchronous requests for results.

Hide the Version Delete Button - Administrators can modify system configuration XML to hide the version delete button for users of the reduced workstation interface.
