Below some of my preferred features from what's new:

  • Activity plus : activities rebuild in collaboration with ISW has raised up his functionality and now will be a must have ! It will be also possible to upgrade Activities plus to ISW Kudos boards with a serial number . This component it's now part of the component pack without the addiction of new requirements.

  • Connections sidebar: it's a component that permit to integrate Connections easily into other sites
  • New  self service invitation system for external users
  • File ownership trafer: now it's possible to trasfer the ownership also from File app (one by one),  or wsadmin for bulk transfer
  • .... and many more  !
