Set parser preferences

Rollbase now has an improved built-in DOCX and PDF parser. You can set parser preferences at global level and choose between built-in and Aspose (if installed). By default, the built-in parser is used. You can make Aspose parser as the default option for DOC, PDF, and DOCX by modifying IsAsposeDocParserEnabled, IsAsposePDFParserEnabled, and IsAsposeDocxParserEnabled shared properties respectively. At tenant level, the master administrator can now set parser preferences by overriding the default global preference. See Working with customer records for more information.

Rollbase also supports a metered plan, provided you have valid Aspose license keys. Rollbase will no longer support .doc and .rtf templates. However, the support for existing templates will continue. 

SAML/ADFS - Support for SHA-256 as a request signature method Algorithm

Rollbase now lets you select a signature method algorithm (global and per tenant level) to be used to sign the request being sent to the IDP. You can select RSA-SHA1 or RSA-SHA256. The default value is RSA-SHA1. See Configuring SAML/ADFS authentication for all tenants, Configuring SAML/ADFS authentication for a tenant, and setAuthentication for more information.

Locking enhancements for OpenEdge and SQL Server

With the enhanced OpenEdge and SQL Server databases locking mechanism, background select count queries no longer require locks at database/table levels to fetch results.
