Release 24.1

New Features:

Search All Joined Groups - Result Paging and Search Efficiency

Multiple improvements have been made to history searching across all joined groups. The search results support paging, ensuring users can effectively browse results beyond the initial result limit. Paging ensures searching history across all groups has a limited performance impact on the MindLink environment, while allowing further searching of older results with subsequent pages.

To complement paging, the efficiency of histoyr searching has been improved to deliver results more effectively.

Certificate Authentication (CBAC)

MindLink Anywhere supports a new authentication mechanism - Certificate Authentication - allowing a user to be authenticated via a client certificate. The client certificate's subject is used as the claim for validating against an Active Directory object (via LDAP).

More details, including configuration, can be found in the Certificate authentication page.

OIDC - Configurable iFrame or popup authentication

Initial support for OIDC in 23.7 required users to redirect from the MLA Authentication page to their OIDC authority. Release 24.1 provides more flexibility to administrators, offering a configurable 'Prefered signin mode' with 'Redirect' or 'Popup' available.

Note: Pop-up mode will fall back to Redirect if popups are disabled on the browser.

New MLA Themes

The Dark and Light themes in MLA have updated, serving a brand-aligned pallet of colors aligned with the old theme.
