Just a short post to announce that the "live sandbox" (*) of the Alfresco Content Services REST API Explorer has been upgraded to Alfresco Content Services (ACS) 5.2.2.


This means you can now explore and "try out" in a shared playground (*) the new API features that have been added to Community 201711 (6.0.0-ea) and ACS 5.2.2. These include new Audit and Avatar API's.


For more details on the changes, please refer to:


Alfresco Community Edition 201711 GA Release 


... or you can also diff the API specs (between 5.2.1 & 5.2.2).


If you're just getting started with the Alfresco public APIs and would like more background information or detailed tutorials, then please refer to:


Alfresco public REST APIs 


If you prefer to download &/or trial your own dedicated instance, see Download and Install Alfresco.


It should be noted that if you install Governance Services (GS) then you will also have access to the new GS API Explorer & GS Core REST APIs (part of Records Management Community 2.6.a).





(*) Please be aware that (as always) this is a publicly accessible & shared demo server. Please do not upload private, sensitive or valuable data. The server is not backed-up and may be reset or taken offline without warning.

As promised in our last release post, RM 2.6.c follows hot on the heels of 2.6.b.  RM 2.6.c is compatible with Alfresco Platform 5.2.g and Share 5.2.f.

What's in 2.6.c?

Due to the short period and a focus on enterprise features, there isn't a huge amount that's new in this release. We have had a lot of updates to improve strings in our ten supported localisations.  We have also acted on feedback we received to improve one of our English UI strings (RM-5793).

We have included a few security fixes by updating RM to use the latest release of Aikau.

Our developer documentation has had some attention too, and we've started work on a new format of technical documentation.  We've also formalised our contribution guidelines.

What's coming up next?

As noted above RM 2.6.c has been tested with Alfresco 5.2.x, but we don't know of any compatibility issues with the latest community release of ACS. If you try it and find issues then we'd love to hear about it.  Compatibility with 6.0.x is on our backlog, but we don't expect to address it until RM 3.0.a (nb. our next community release is currently expected to be 2.7.a).

If you have any feedback about 2.6.c, or about what you'd like to see in the next release, then please let us know. You can use the comments below, or feel free to message me or one of the team.
