The update applies to Episerver projects version 7.5 and higher, and contains finalized work items included in the latest iteration.

Episerver supports all platform updates and strongly recommends that you keep ongoing projects up-to-date. You can install the updates from the Episerver NuGet feed.

Main packages
This release information lists updated main package versions for the Episerver platform. When a release is built, other dependent packages also may be bumped to new versions, although they contain no publicly visible changes. This is done to avoid dependency errors. When you upgrade, NuGet alerts you to upgrade related packages to the required versions. For Commerce, it is important to ensure that you are running the same version of CMS and Commerce, both in the front-end and back-end applications.

New features:

    • MAI-1600: Salesforce: SOAP API replaced by REST API to communicate with Salesforce objects
    • MAI-1611: Salesforce: Option to submit form data asynchronously has been added
      A checkbox has been added to the admin settings screen to allow for asynchronous submission of form data to Salesforce.
      If this option is enabled, data submission is a "fire and forget" operation. That is, the entityId is not received and stored in the mai cookie. Therefore, auto-fill and personalization based on Salesforce fields will not work.
