Release 21.1

New Features:

Updated Contact Card improvements
Added new Hover contact cards to quickly access key user information - Hover over a user's name in the dock or active conversation and their contact card will show their details.

Contact cards have also been improved with time zones. Users in other time zones will show their time zone and local time.

Disclaimer Audit Logging
Added an audit log entry for the status of disclaimers when a user logs in - Logs if the user has accepted the disclaimer. Provides administrators with a record of their disclaimer deployment, logging if it has been accepted. This applies to the default disclaimer or any discriminating disclaimers that are enabled.

WebSessionLogOnAuditEntry { DisclaimerHash: "1EA600EE793441D49F2BC88D054D468B", IsDisclaimerSigned: True, UserId: "", Description: "logged on", AuditEntryStatus: Success }

A log entry will also be created if disclaimers are disabled, to ensure disclaimer status is clear in any configuration.

Persistent Disclaimers
Administrators can configure a disclaimer to show every time a user reaches MLA. Using the following debug key in the Management Center Advanced tab, an administrator can enforce persistent disclaimers to ensure they are shown each time a user logs in.

debug.web.client.disclaimer.nocache = true

Previously a disclaimer would be accepted and not shown to the same endpoint again, until a change is made to the disclaimer config.

User Presence & Profile Pictures in Search Results
Updated the MindLink dock search results to show a user's presence state. Additionally, results will show the user's profile picture in search results.
