Dynamicweb release 8.7.1 is now ready for download.
A minor service release, Dynamicweb 8.7.1 offers additional improvements to usability for you and your customers, a new international payment provider for websites and mobile apps, and more than 30 bug fixes.
Stripe has been added as a new payment provider for both websites and mobile apps, allowing you to accept payment from anyone, anywhere – or at least from the US, Canada, UK, Australia and most European countries including Denmark, Norway and Sweden. Stripe is fully integrated with recurring orders and saved cards functionality introduced in 8.7.0. Working with product variants has become easier, with a new interface for adding and managing product groups and options. Shipping methods now has a field for adding an icon, which can then be rendered in the frontend for an immediate visual representation of the shipping provider. And anonymous carts can now be merged with existing saved carts on login. Finally, the Quickpay payment window has been updated to match their API changes, and recurring orders has seen extensive improvement, and is now based on an order template.
The item field type ’user field’ now allows you to add user groups, rather than just individual users, making it possible for you to work with users in items in an easier, dynamic manner. The Extranet module now supports password recovery based on user name. The item publisher now supports using secondary sorting criteria, giving you tighter control over item content published. When using a @Translate tag or the Translate method in Razor, and the provided key does not exist in the translation file, the key is now added to the XML file - with the specified default value if specified (Only new translations method).The keys are added to the translations.xml in the designs folder when the frontend pages are loaded. And Forms-for-Editors has been made even more user-friendly, with the option to create receipts with a rich-text editor rather than a receipt template.
The ever-popular News V2 module now supports social media publishing directly from the backend, making it easier for your editors to publish to multiple platforms – sharing your content to all your social media networks.
The new indexing engine now supports grouping variants in a query, and the query publisher can now output the Lucene score in addition to the query result.
