Release 19.5

New Features#

Reclaimation of custom aliases in MindLink Anywhere:
Users can assign themselves a group alias in MLA. This alias is unique for each group and persists across sessions. This means that a user can claim an alias forever, and this alias will be unavailable to other users even if the user leaves the company or is otherwise disabled for access.

Keyboard Navigation in MindLink Anywhere
Improved keyboard navigation in MLA further so that full arrow-key traversal of the dock and message history area is possible. This has been coupled with improved screen-reader support so that quick navigation of the app via keyboard and screen reader is functional and easy.

Improved Look & Feel in MindLink Anywhere
Improvements to the MLA UX to bring it up-to-date and consistent across the app. Simplified the colour scheme to ensure that the colour palette is accessible.

Custom disclaimer in MindLink Anywhere
Added the ability to set a custom disclaimer upon entering the app. This supports the use case of an external "cloud" chat service.

Custom Header/Footer banners in MindLink Anywhere
Added the ability to inject custom header and footer banners in MLA. The banners will display pages at external URLs, so that the entire contents can be customised. This supports the use case of an external "cloud" chat service.

Customisable URLs in MindLink Anywhere
Added the ability to redirect the home page to a custom URL, and to specify a custom "help" URL. This supports the use case of an external "cloud" chat service.
