What’s new Permalink to "What’s new"

This patch release has several important fixes and changes:

  • HTTP Session Clustering with Hazelcast has been removed (#6944). JHipster now has far better Spring Cache abstraction support, which is a much better solution for everyone. This also lowers the maintenance burden for the core team, for an option which was very rarely used.
  • E-mails can now be used as usernames (#6923), as it prevented both Keycloak and Okta to work properly. So you can now login both with your username or your e-mail address - but as your username can also be an e-mail address, we understand this can be confusing, and are currently considering if we should remove the usernames completely, and only use e-mail addresses to login.
  • workbox-webpack-plugin was causing the front-end build to fail, and is corrected with #6950
  • The prod profile now works correctly with microservices, see #6947
  • It looks like Oracle changed its JDBC driver names, and this is corrected in #6952
  • Support for “includes()” functions with Internet Explorer has been added in #6953
