Library updates and performance tweaks for janusSEAL App for Outlook

A minor patch to janusSEAL App for Outlook - version 3.5.4 - was released on the 16th August 2017.

The patch included:

  • updated version of the jquery javascript library used for client-side functionality
  • making use of Microsoft's Code Delivery Network (CDN) to serve the jquery javascript library and the MicrosoftAjax javascript library - this will result in faster delivery of these libraries to the client browser, and
  • some auditing functions happening in a background process to improve performance

Customers using janusSEAL App for Outlook do not need to re-install the App; these code changes were in place when the code was uploaded.

On Send Classification Dialog fix for janusSEAL App for Outlook

A code update to janusSEAL App for Outlook was uploaded today with some performance enhancements and a fix for Internet Explorer 11 on early versions of Windows 10.

In detail, these changes are:

  • FIX: the approach that was being used for bringing up the On Send Classification Dialog was using a javascript method which was not implemented in some versions of Internet Explorer (11 and 8). To avoid this problem the code was modified to avoid relying on this javascript method.
  • ENHANCEMENT: janusSEAL App for Outlook uses a number of javascript libraries, several of which are available on a Code Delivery Network (CDN) infrastructure provided by Microsoft. The code for janusSEAL App for Outlook has been modified to reference these javascript libraries on the CDN which should lead to some performance improvements.

Customers using janusSEAL App for Outlook do not need to re-install the App; these code changes were in place when the code was uploaded.

Administration patch for janusSEAL App for Outlook

A minor patch to janusSEAL App for Outlook - v3.5.2 - was released yesterday.

This patch was focussed on improved administration functions for janusNET staff, however, a beneficial consequence for customers is that there should be a slight performance boost in the App. A tenant's configuration settings can now be cached in server-side memory for a longer period of time which means better page load times for the App.

Customers do not have to do anything to take advantage of this patch - the improvements are already in place with no need to re-install the manifest.

Improved localisation of janusSEAL App for Outlook

A patch to janusSEAL App for Outlook, version 3.5.1, has been released which provides:

  • improved interface localisation,
  • the ability to install the manifest in Exchange 2016 CU3 and below, and
  • the ability to preview the upgrade for sites that already have an earlier version installed.

 

In more detail, these fixes and enhancements are:

  • Enhancement: improvements to localisation of user interface in Exchange 2016 and Office 365 environments. Unlike Exchange 2013 which only supported culture specific localisation (language + region) janusSEAL App for Outlook has been enhanced to make use of culture neutral localisation (language only) which is supported in Exchange 2016 and Office 365. This means the user interface is more likely to be rendered in the preferred language choice of the user, regardless of region. Behaviour in Exchange 2013 remains the same - the user interface is rendered in the preferred language choice of the user provided janusSEAL App for Outlook has a localisation resource for the user's language and region preference (specific culture).
  • Fix: in introducing support for detecting the on send event in version 3.4.0, the new installation manifest required for defining this feature was not recognised in Exchange 2016 CU3 and below and led to an error on trying to install janusSEAL App for Outlook on such systems. In this patch we now include the ability for system administrators to specify their Exchange environment and the installation manifest is manufactured to be valid for that the environment.
  • Enhancement: some customers had requested the ability to be able to install the newer version of the manifest without needing to remove the current version of janusSEAL App for Outlook from production. In this patch we now include the ability for system administrators to indicate that they want a 'preview' edition of the manifest which can be installed alongside the current version in production.

 

To take advantage of either of the enhancements above, organisations have to re-fetch their installation manifest as is covered in the documentation.

Classification dialog added to janusSEAL App for Outlook

Less than two weeks ago, janusNET released an update (version 3.4.0) to janusSEAL App for Outlook that forced senders to classify messages prior to sending. 

Today janusNET have released an improvement to this feature that makes the process easier for the end-user.  Now, if the user attempts to send a message without classifying it they are shown a classification dialog from which they can easily classify the message and then have it sent:

On Send Dialog

This is similar behaviour to janusSEAL for Outlook - were senders are forced to classify, and if they don't do it prior to sending, they do it in the dialog/pop-up after hitting the Send button.

The envronments that have this feature is available for is constantly being enhanced - customers should refer to the updated installation guide, consult their janusNET Sales Partner, or contact janusNET.
