Preview: Release Notes SiteVision 8

SiteVision 8 introduces Cache API for Webapps/RESTApps and more developer-centric logging and monitoring. The release also includes several improvements and bug fixes.

Infrastructure

Upgrades

  • [SV-31285] Tomcat is upgraded to 8.5.59
  • [SV-30902] Coretto is upgraded to 8.265.01.1

Other

  • [SV-30545] All logging via the API (LogUtil and new console.log) will be written to a daily separate file (app.log)

Admin UI

Improvements

  • [SV-30545] App log - a new live log available via /admin/applog. This view requires the "developer" permission and it will contain all logging that is performed via the API (i.e. via LogUtil and new server-side Javascript console.log)
