Janusseal Documents App 1.7.2 released

A patch of Janusseal Documents App has been released with the following enhancements:

  • Static components of Janusseal Documents App like javascript files and style sheets are now pre-compressed to save the server back-end server from compressing these streams as the content is delivered to the Outlook client (a small performance improvement).

  • As part of implementing the pre-compressed components mentioned above, it was realised that a better compression algorithm than gzip, called brotli (that is now supported by most browsers/web engines and Word or Excel on desktops), could be used for these components. So where possible, the back-end server is now delivering brotli compressed assets which are around 20% smaller than their gzip counterparts. If the client does not support the brotli algorithm then we serve the gzip compressed versions instead, as is currently done.

  • A tool was used to analyse some aspects of the javascript files that are part of Janusseal Documents App and it was found that a major element of one of the javascript files was unnecessarily included; this element has been removed to save file size which means less to download at the client; this combined with the enhancement above leads to a significant file size reduction. 

Janusseal Documents App is the Office web add-in from Janusnet for enhancing Word and Excel (Windows, Mac and online/web version) with security classification capability; it is not Janusseal Documents which is the Office COM add-in for enhancing the Windows version of Word, Excel and PowerPoint with such capability.
