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-ga21

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

Objects

Allow Objects Users do Upload Files through Documents and Media

From GA19 power users are able to add fields that supports uploading files.

Now costumers are able to select files from the same scope as the object on Documents and Media, allowing them to reuse the files they have already on the Liferay Portal.

https://issues.liferay.com/browse/LPS-146523

Allow Users do Duplicate Views

Allow users who have permission duplicate a entire Custom View from a selected one.
Except for the “Mark as Default” checkbox, that will be unchecked.

https://issues.liferay.com/browse/LPS-146028

Experience Building

Improvements of Page Editor’s fragments styling UX/UI

Allow users to configure fragments styling in a more user-friendly way:

  • Collapsed sections in “Styles” tab, for better organization and more clear UI

  • More intiuitive margins & paddings selection UI

  • For this margins & paddings selection, show the token value along with the token name, to have a better understanding of what is being selected.

CDN

Cache controls for public documents

Now it is possible for admins to configure how they want CDNs to cache documents that have view permissions for Guests.

At instance level it is possible to set whether public documents are cacheable or not, as well as the maximum age and set different mimetypes to be excluded from caching.
