2.11.1-funcrel

Note

Replaces 2.11.0-funcrel which was withdrawn due to an error when importing application data into a fresh installation of CAST Imaging (upgraded installations were unaffected). 2.11.1-funcrel contains the same fixes and updates as 2.11.0-funcrel (listed below), in addition to a fix for the error introduced in 2.11.0-funcrel.

Feature Improvements

SummaryDetails
UI - Transaction and Data Call Graph scopes - Removal of virtual input and output nodesThe "virtual" input and output nodes displayed at object level in the Transaction and Data Call Graph scopes have been removed. These virtual items sometimes caused confusion as they were considered as real input or output nodes. See https://doc.castsoftware.com/display/IMAGING/User+Guide+-+Data+Call+Graph+scope#UserGuideDataCallGraphscope-trans_startCallgraphstartandendpoints(input/output) and https://doc.castsoftware.com/display/IMAGING/User+Guide+-+Transaction+scope#UserGuideTransactionscope-trans_startTransactionstartandendpoints(input/output).
UI - Truncated names for classes with long namesWhen a class name is more than 60 characters long, the name will now be truncated to 60 characters and ellipses (...) will be added to indicate the name has been truncated. The following pattern will be used for the class names: 10characters + ellipses + 49characters.
UI - Custom Scope - Undo removed objectsWhen using the Custom scope (results of a global object search), it is now possible to use the Undo/Redo options in the bottom left corner of the view, specifically to re-instate an object that has been removed. See https://doc.castsoftware.com/display/IMAGING/User+Guide+-+Custom+scope#UserGuideCustomscope-Removingobjectsfromacustomscope.
Admin - Preferences - Preferred Graph LayoutThe Preferred Graph Layout option is now applied to the standard Custom scope and the Custom scope available in the App to App Dependencies scope (in addition to the Application scope as in previous releases). See https://doc.castsoftware.com/display/IMAGING/Configuring+display+preferences#Configuringdisplaypreferences-Preferredgraphlayout.
UI - Preferences - Advanced Search ConfigurationsThe "Object Search filter" settings have been renamed to "Advanced Search Configurations". In addition, these settings are now also valid for the new Transactions and Data Call Graph scope filter result search mechanism: see https://doc.castsoftware.com/display/IMAGING/Configuring+display+preferences#Configuringdisplaypreferences-AdvancedSearchConfigurations.
UI - Transaction and Data Call Graph scopes - Search filter optionsTwo options previously available in the filter settings (Case Sensitivity and Position) have been removed and have now been added to a new "search" mechanism available for the results of a filtering action. See https://doc.castsoftware.com/display/IMAGING/User+Guide+-+Transaction+scope#UserGuideTransactionscope-Filteringthelistofavailabletransactions and https://doc.castsoftware.com/display/IMAGING/User+Guide+-+Data+Call+Graph+scope#UserGuideDataCallGraphscope-Filteringthelistofavailabledatacallgraphs.
UI - View legendChanges have been made to the "Legend" in the main view: 1) Three separate tabs are now displayed by default: "Objects", "Properties" and "Source Code", 2) The Legend panel can be hidden and re-displayed, and can be resized to a custom width, 3) Objects are now displayed in two separate groups: Objects and External Objects (new in this release) to make it easier to distinguish between objects that are considered external to the application scope. 4) The Select All/Unselect All options have been renamed as Hide All/Show All. See https://doc.castsoftware.com/display/IMAGING/User+Guide+-+GUI+-+Menus+and+Icons#UserGuideGUIMenusandIcons-Legend.
UI - Saved view - Node coloursIn previous releases, when a view was saved the node colours were not retained. Now, the colours of the nodes are saved with the view and when the view is loaded later the nodes retain the same colours.
UI - Insert feature (Text and Rectangle) - ImprovementsThe Insert feature (Text and Rectangle) has been been improved for a better user experience: 1) the resizing and dragging of the boxes has been improved, 2) Users can now choose a rectangle with three different border colors. See https://doc.castsoftware.com/display/IMAGING/User+Guide+-+Working+with+inserts+or+comments.
UI - Layout options - Sequential and ForceAdditional configuration options have been made available for the Sequential and Force layout options in the Investigate panel. These options allow changes to be made to the way in which each layout option functions. See https://doc.castsoftware.com/display/IMAGING/User+Guide+-+GUI+-+Investigate+panel#UserGuideGUIInvestigatepanel-layoutLayoutoptions.
UI - Drill down behaviour when no child nodes existWhen an attempt is made to drill down on an item which has no child nodes, a message will be displayed stating that there are no child nodes and the action will be prevented. In previous releases, drill down was actioned even if the item contained no child nodes.
UI - Saved Views dropdownWhen a view is saved, the view is saved with the username (who creates it) and the timestamp (the date and time when the view was created). Whenever the saved view is updated (either by the same user or another user) it is saved with username (who updates it) and the timestamp (the date and time when the view was updated). See: https://doc.castsoftware.com/display/IMAGING/User+Guide+-+Saving+and+accessing+saved+views#UserGuideSavingandaccessingsavedviews-AccessingaSavedview
Technical - Source Code Viewer configurationFor CAST Imaging deployments on Docker, additional commands "--updatesourcecodeconfig" and "--addextrahost" have been added to the docker-compose. These commands enable you to configure the source code viewer for Docker deployments without having to manually edit the application.properties file. See https://doc.castsoftware.com/display/IMAGING/Configure+the+source+code+viewer.
UI - Object search option on drill downWhen drilling down into a node that contains a large number of objects exceeding the "Node Limit" value set in the Preferences, a popup dialog box is displayed indicating that the resulting view may take a long time to display. This popup now contains a button called "Search Objects" which allows users to search for and then display specific objects from the resulting group of objects. See https://doc.castsoftware.com/display/IMAGING/Configuring+display+preferences#Configuringdisplaypreferences-Notifyobjectscount.
UI - Transaction and Data Call Graph scopes - Object level drill downWhen drilling down on an object (at Object level) to view its sub objects, and when all sub-objects of the selected object are displayed, a popup message is now shown to explain this: "You are currently viewing all the sub-objects in the application for the selected object".
Technical - Backend - Report download improvementsImprovements have been implemented in the report generation feature (see https://doc.castsoftware.com/display/IMAGING/User+Guide+-+Reports): 1) reports are now generated in a batch of 100,000 records to improve performance. 2) for XLSX reports, if there are more than 1 million records, then a new sheet will be created in the same Excel file. 3) For JSON file reports, if there are more than 100,000 records, then the JSON report will not be structured. 4) CSV report behaviour remains unchanged.
Technical - Improvements to caching in ngnixPrevious releases were sometimes affected by a cache issue where after upgrade to a new release of CAST Imaging, the release number in the splash page was incorrect. This issue has now been fixed for new installations. For those upgrading to 2.11 (or above) and still facing the issue, it can be resolved by editing the nginx.conf file as described in https://doc.castsoftware.com/display/IMAGING/Manual+action+to+resolve+cache+issue.
Technical - Amazon Web Services & .NET external library classificationCAST Imaging now automatically classifies AWS (Amazon Web Services) and .NET external libraries (such as "System.x") in the main view.
