Cascade update: version 7.0.7
We will be rolling out version 7.0.7 of Cascade this evening, starting at 5:00pm. Downtime is expected to be an hour. There’s a bunch of new features, including massive speed increases which should help the slowness we have been experiencing.
- Index block caching: The navigation and other ‘automatically generating’ assets in Cascade use ‘Index Blocks’ to accomplish what they need to do. Now this operation will be much quicker, meaning that pages being viewed in Cascade, publishing and other tasks should be anywhere from twice to eight times faster, depending on what Cascade has to do in the backend.
- Type ahead search when linking to assets: Now when you’re trying to link to a page you can do a search for that asset without having to manually browse for it.
- Asset browser is no longer a pop up window: The asset chooser window will no longer get lost behind other windows on your computer, and will work more reliably in older versions of Internet Explorer.
- Unpublishing assets more easily: When moving or renaming an asset, Cascade will now ask if you want to unpublish the asset so what’s on the server isn’t out of sync with what’s in your CMS site.
There are also number of new features that are less forward facing that you can read about here: http://www.hannonhill.com/kb/Release-Notes/7.0/index.html
