For development using the Liferay Platform, update Liferay
Workspace to use the latest dependencies, by adding the following
line to the build.gradle file:
compileOnly group: "com.liferay.portal", name: "release.portal.api"
All portal dependencies are now defined with a single
declaration. When using an IDE such as Eclipse or IntelliJ all apis
are immediately available in autocomplete for immediate use.
By setting a product info key property it will be possible to
update all dependencies to a new version by updating the
liferay.workspace.product property in the liferay
workspace projects gradle.property file:
liferay.workspace.product = portal-7.4-ga38
When using an IDE such as Eclipse or IntelliJ all apis are
immediately available in autocomplete for immediate use.
Now power users add validations in System Objects through Groovy
Scripts and Expression Builder, same as custom Objects.
Now it is possible to set a default expiration term for web
content when creating web content structures.
configurations were only available at the system level. With this
epic, we have added these configurations to instance settings so that:
segmentation can be
enabled/disabled per instance
caching for anonymous users and
interest terms can be defined per instance
LXC customers will be able to
configure segmentation - as they do not have access to system
Additionally we have added a
series of alerts to notify users, in context, when segmentation is
disabled. These alerts can be found in segments, experiences,
personalized variations and the simulation panel.
While multiple instances in a system have been a long standing
feature in Liferay DXP, they often had to be treated as twins because
they had to all leverage the same portal.properties. Now each instance
can have their own portal.properties so they can configure their own
mail servers, or time out settings.
All documentation for Liferay Portal and Liferay Commerce can now
be found on our documentation site: learn.liferay.com. For more information
on upgrading to Liferay Portal 7.4 GA38 see refer to the Upgrade Overview.
