Summary & Highlights

Welcome to Linchpin Essentials 1.3!

The Linchpin Essentials 1.3 release contains several patches for Linchpin. We introduced some new features, improved some more features and took care of several bugs.

We prepared a short summary of the most important changes, so you can keep track of them. If you want more info about a specific function, use the navigation to jump to this function's release notes.




Let's begin with Linchpin User Profiles. We redesigned the Org Charts.

The Org Charts received a complete overhaul and redesign. Now, the Org Charts are more dynamic - you can zoom in or out, move the view field via drag & drop and collapse or expand individual paths/branches.


The Linchpin Manager API is now called the Linchpin Suite API. Linchpin Manager (as a standalone app) is history now, so we see it as fitting to rename the API, too. 


Finally, we fixed a bug in Space Directory which caused column layouts to break when Internet Explorer 11 was used.









Space Directory

We fixed a bug which broke column layouts in Internet Explorer 11.


Bugfixes

  • The Spaces macro of the Linchpin Space Directory now doesn't break column layouts in Internet Explorer 11 anymore.





User profiles

Linchpin User Profiles received an overhaul for Org Charts. Now, Org Charts are more dynamic, look better and provide more information in one place.

  • We have taken a big step towards better org charts: more interaction, more content, more information in one place. You will love it. 
  • We added support for the Germanic umlaut (ä, ö, ü) in user search.
