This topic shows the changelog for each new version of XperienCentral and its add ons. The changelogs include a summary of the following:

  • New features that have been added
  • Improvements that have been made
  • Change requests that have been resolved
  • Bugs that have been fixed
  • Changes that have been made to the documentation

The issue numbers are also a link to the full Jira issue.

  • All changes that have been made to a particular version of XperienCentral are always included in the releases listed above it. There are times when a lower-numbered release appears above one with a higher release version number, for example XperienCentral version R29.3 is listed above R30. What this means is that version R30 contains all the changes made in R29.2 (and lower) but it does not contain changes made in version R29.3. The reason for this is that a "patch release" for a previously released version is sometimes created in order to pick up important bug fixes and/or security improvements.
  • See also Upgrade Notes per Version for further actions you may be required to take after upgrading to each version of XperienCentral.
