SOLU BS update: Version 4.6.2

Version 4.6.2 reinvigorates Solu internals and clears out some crud to make it feel fresh again! A lot of new features focus on expanding extensions and optional functionality such as commenting and shop, but we haven't forgotten most common daily use cases either. Plenty of work has gone into little usability updates and making the admin UI more consistant.

During the past two years there has been quite a bit of disparity between SOLU versions in use and this update is meant to be a unifying update bringing all the installations up to date. These are the general changes since version 4.3.1, which was the last common version.

Navigation and manual upkeep updates

Page content edit

Updated views starts with the Welcome page as the recently modified pages now show whether the page in question has been published or not. Page content components have been updated to show more metadata, headings show the corresponding HTML tag, data cards show visibility status and possible CustomID. Added Gallery items provide a link to gallery and a separate download link.

Data content edit

Data card editing view benefits from similar updates. Linked data cards can be sorted alphabetically. Manipulation of Linked data cards is simple, you can view them in separate window and apply mass operations to them such as deleting all of them at once. The selection of mass operations has expanded, now you can add/remove from groups and profiles, switch visibility and delete selected data cards.

Dependency updates

This version of Solu targets .NET Framework 4.6.2 where it gets its version number. This is to make sure that Solu doesn't depend on any outdated or unsupported components. We've also updated all external libraries to their current version. Some old dependencies have been removed and the functionality replaced with newer practises. All this should provide faster and more secure experience. However it should be noted that for example replacing the Flash -based multiupload in the Gallery with a HTML5 based solution requires a newer browser for full support.
