Content approval email notifications were previously sent instantly. Now, they are grouped into summaries and sent at regular intervals instead. The intervals are controled by the Notification Dispatcher scheduled job. You can configure notifications to be sent instantly, see Configuring email notifications for content approvals.

You can use this feature to create a customer satisfaction survey that displays additional questions depending on how a visitor answers. So, if a visitor answers "Food" to the question "What's your favorite thing about the Coffee House?", an additional question is displayed, "Which food do you like in particular?". That question is not displayed if the visitor picks any of the other options for the first question. To set up a survey like this, see Creating a customer satisfaction survey in the Episerver User Guide.
You can now search inside a select column in the form submissions.
When a form is deleted (and removed from Trash as well), a scheduled job deletes all form submissions related to the form.
A scheduled job checks for partially filled-in form data and deletes it after a specified number of days after the visitor submitted the data. The default time is 30 days.
When you deleted submitted form data, any related uploaded files are also deleted.
When a visitor submits a Salesforce/Pardot/Marketo/MS Dynamics form multiple times, you can now either update the visitor's existing information, or you can create a new entity (lead, contact, and so on).
