Bundles and other download options

Dependency Management

For development using the Liferay Platform, update Liferay Workspace to use the  latest dependencies, by adding the following line to the build.gradle file:

dependencies {
	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-ga46

When using an IDE such as Eclipse or IntelliJ all apis are immediately available in autocomplete for immediate use.

Features

Commerce

Account Management User Permission

Previously, to restrict which Accounts the Sales Agent had access to, you had to link Accounts to Organizations and then allow the role to manage the organization. Now, instead of setting up this organization structure you can link users to the account directly. Users can be linked at a channel level meaning that they can only access orders coming from those channels.

This new feature works with or without the Organization structure. This means you can give a user access to all accounts in an organization and other accounts directly that are not linked to the organization.

Objects

Allow users to add terms in notification settings

Users now can use variables from the object entry context to configure the recipient, CC, and so on.
