Upcoming feature enhancements
- An even more secure MindTouch experience
Most MindTouch customers have moved over to a more secure experience for their users. This move has been to require HTTPS connections completely across their sites (the "S" stands for secure). Google recently announced that they are moving towards encouraging a more secure internet and boosting sites that require an HTTPS encryption method. Enhancing your Google presence can drive even more new and existing customers to your brand. We will be sending out more information regarding this switch on Tuesday, February 21, 2017.
- New and improved sitemap.xml
We have updated how we generate our XML sitemaps to better handle large sites (50,000 + pages) and page permissions. XML sitemaps make it easier for search engines to find all the pages on your Mindtouch site quickly. There will be no loss in functionality with this change and we are currently testing on large sites before we release to everyone in the coming weeks.
- Contextual help migration
MindTouch Touchpoint tools were released over the summer. These embeddable building blocks allow for the sharing of MindTouch content across multiple channels. Our contextual help tool was created to replace our older version of contextual help. Over the next few months, we will be converting these old implementations over to the new contextual help tool. We will be working with those of you still using the old version, to ensure a smooth transition over to the new contextual help tool.
Why should I convert to the new contextual help?
- Easier to create, customize, and use
- Allows for the use of anchors links
- Responsive design that works on any device or resolution
We are targeting a support deprecation date for the old contextual help implementation on March 2, 2017. If you have any questions, comments, or concerns please contact MindTouch Support.
- IE 10 deprecation in May 2017
Back in June, we announced the creation of a legacy browser experience that would allow users to view MindTouch content in deprecated browsers. At the time, we decided that Legacy Browser would work for IE 9 and below. Now that some time has passed and we have analyzed how MindTouch users view content in Internet Explorer, we would like to add IE 10 to that list in accordance with Microsoft's own End of Support announcement earlier this year.
