Fonto Document History 7.10.0 (March 27th, 2020)

This release of Fonto Document History introduces some new functionality as well as a number of fixes.

Fonto Document History has one important change this release. We now only save the document that is going to be opened in Document History when invoking the operation to open Document History. Previous releases saved all documents.If you want to restore this behaviour, please wrap the operation to go to Document History in a custom one and add save-all-documents-and-wait before it.

New functionality

  • We added an API (go-to-history-for-document) in Fonto Editor to open Document History for a specific document. This can be used instead of the default API to open the focused document.
  • We now restore the scroll position correct when switching back to Fonto Editor when coming from Document History.
  • We now show multiple year transitions in the revision selector if multiple years passed since the last revision.

Resolved issues

  • Document History now only saves the document that is opened in Document History. See the warning note on the top of these release notes.
  • Fonto Document History did not always show an error message in case the CMS couldn't be reached. We now always do.
  • We now always show an error message if the client is offline. Previously this would result in an endless spinner.
  • Document History would previously issue GET /document requests for ALL documents that were not loaded in Fonto Editor. This has now been resolved.
  • The context menu of Document History did not always open when you would expect it. This has now been resolved.
  • When selecting text in Document History, the selection would sometimes jump to an unexpected location. This has now been resolved.
