Version 6.1.1

Because getting it right the first time is overrated. If I get this one wrong again then I'll bless you with a 6.1.n 🥇

  • Fixed some performance issues discovered with Import-Function 9d695c6. I don't know how @AdamNaj does it, but when there is a problem he brings out the big guns. See more details about the performance improvements experienced with testing SXA in issue #1189.
  • Fixed issue with the packages containing a test patch and missing the ones that really matter. Clearly didn't check this because if I had then you would still be installing 6.1.

Version 6.1 - Use 6.1.1 instead!

Primarily a release of bug fixes. One of the most annoying issues was the ISE console would not retain the messages during script execution. 👎

Version 6.0

This release is kind of a big deal.

Note: In this you will find that Sitecore PowerShell Extensions assemblies and configurations were renamed to contain "Spe"; the former name has been retired and removed from everywhere in code.

This release (also for v5.1) has a single package for Sitecore 8.x - 9.x and the VersionSpecific dll is an embedded resource. Only install this version if using Sitecore 8 or 9. The installation works best on clean instances, but you can still upgrade with minimal effort. There is a poststep which attempts to remove the old files no longer needed.

Summary of important changes

Breaking Changes

  • All configuration files and libraries (including namespaces) have been renamed. #1109

Major new Features

  • Find-Item now supports the use of custom types similar to SearchResultItem and selecting custom properties. Thank you @peplau for your help with this. #1120 and #1123
  • Integration Points can now use the root level library (i.e. Reports, Context Menu) to apply rules for Show/Enable rather than having to apply to each script.

All improvements

  • There is now a tool for transferring security from a user/role to a role in the toolbox. #1139
  • Find-Item can now check for GreaterThan and LessThan conditions. #1128
  • Added the command Remove-Layout to remove layouts from an item. #1111
  • Added the command Switch-Rendering to switch a rendering from one to another. Some features are still missing or need further review. #1110
  • Organized security related scripts into a separate module. Now they are hidden from Content Authors. #1139

All Fixes

  • The Quick download package tool did not use the proper name. #1116
  • You could not assign $null to an item field. #1117
  • Fixed an old issue where Set-ItemTemplate would fail on broken items. #1138
  • Fixed #1137 where the ISE gallery buttons would not open properly.
  • Found issue where an icon for the ISE tooltip was missing.
  • Found an issue where the field editor was referencing an API no longer available (9.2+).

Known Issues

Integration Points

  • The PageEditor script button integration is disabled by default. This is due to an API change. See #1136 .

Packaging

  • #1143: Fixed. The "Script Library" node is set to overwrite which will wipe out all of your scripts!.
  • #1143: Fixed. The security role "sitecore\PowerShell Extensions Remoting" is missing from the package.
  • The scwdp package has an issue where a script called text.js is missing. If you install with the regular module package the file exists. I suspect something is wrong with the Azure Toolkit library used to generate the package. This can be discovered by opening the ISE and you'll see the 404 in the browser console.
