Bug fixes

  • [ENV-51] Cards & cardholder: A new collection of container classes that may be used for building grids that adapt to the available space, and stretches to align both horizontally and vertically.
  • [APP-699] Modal alerts: Modal dialog with Alert styling.
  • [ENV-49] Modal inner/outer scroll: Modal dialogs may now be configured to scroll outside as before or inside the dialog body.
  • [ENV-77] Icon buttons: Icons in buttons have been updated so icons no longer stretch the size of the button. Icons will have a fixed size relative to the selected button size. Buttons with visually hidden text showing only an icon will have equal width and height.
  • [ENV-62] Connected border-radiuses: The general setting for border-radius will control all border-radiuses. Setting it to zero will remove border radius for all components.
  • [ENV-64] Toasts: A new component that may be used for messages of less importance that require no action from the user.

Bug fixes

  • [SV-32007] Explicit indexing support for tag metadata. Multiple tags metadata should be indexed as individual values, as other multi-valued metadata are. The tagName for each value will be indexed. Previously tag metadata values were implicitly indexed as if it was generic text metadata. Typically this would result in a single-valued, comma-separated String of "display names", i.e tagTitle values (Note! to use new behaviour for already indexed pages requires manual re-index of affected pages. Typically via a full reindex of site)
