November 2017 Releases

Planned feature enhancements

Editor: Paste button
On November 30th, we’ll be updating our editor with under the hood performance optimizations. As part of our efforts to increase efficiency, the “paste” button will be removed. Previously, the paste button would prompt a dialog which requested that the user paste content using the paste key command. After the update, users can simply use the paste keystroke, or right- or control-click directly in the page.

Planned deprecations

Legacy Comments: MT4 & TCS
Our legacy comments feature, used in MT4 and TCS, is scheduled to be removed on February 8, 2018. If your MindTouch site currently uses legacy comments, contact us.

Feature enhancements

MindTouch Performance: Removal of moment.js library will launch November 9, 2017
All dependencies on the JavaScript library "Moment" will be removed as of November 9, 2017. Removal of the moment.js library will decrease page load times. If any custom JavaScript on your site was dependent on moment.js, your support contact has been notified with steps on how to update those dependencies.

Site Structure: Prevention of inadvertent new page creation
Currently, pro members who attempt to follow a link to a page that no longer exists will trigger the creation of a new page. Sites can now be configured to prevent this, and instead, deliver an error, "Page could not be found," with links to related articles.

Site Structure: Deletion of page children
Currently, pro members who attempt to delete a page have the option of leaving that page's children in place, which results in structure errors. Sites can now be configured to prevent this, and instead, warn the user that a specific number of child pages and files will be deleted.
