Important Notes for Dynamicweb 8.8.0.x

  • Payment\Authorize.Net

    Type: Technical
    Title: New transaction URLs (after June 2016 all transaction URLs will connect to Authorize.Net through Akamai)
    Feature details: If you do not use a firewall or do not connect directly via an IP address, then you can disregard this section. Using Akamai technology, Authorize.Net's IP addresses will become dynamic rather than static. If your website or payment solution uses a firewall that has whitelisted Authorize.Net's IP address or connects to Authorize.Net directly via an IP address, you will need to make additional changes. Firewall Considerations — If your solution uses a firewall to filter outbound connections, make sure that the firewall is set to permit outbound traffic to flow to the Akamai cloud by configuring your outbound firewall to "ANY." If you do not update your firewall ahead of June 2016, you will be unable to process transactions after Phase Two is implemented. IP Address Considerations — If your solution connects to Authorize.Net directly via an IP address, you will need to update it to connect by domain name. Continuing to connect directly via an IP address is strongly discouraged as merchants will not receive the benefits of routing through Akamai, and could suffer a loss of service if transactions are re-routed among our various data centers.
    Release: 8.8.0.0
  • Access (db)

    Type: Technical
    Title: Support for Access database is being phased out
    Feature details: Support for Access database is being phased out. We strongly recommend upgrading to SQL before upgrading to Dynamicweb 8.8.1.
    Release: 8.8.0.0
  • Items

    Type: Upgrade
    Title: Item List field is depricated (Item relation list is extended instead)
    Feature details: Item lists are deprecated in DW88. Created Item list fields are still available but it is not possible to create new fields of type "Item list". You need to use fields of type "Item relation list" instead. In the parameters for "Item relation list" field you are eble to select "Inline" in order to get the same functionality as the deprecated item list field.
