Version 4.1.8

Released: April 23, 2022

Status: End of life



Update Django from version 2.2.24 to 2.2.28.


Updated the subject and body fields of the document email workflow action to be optional.

The WorkflowAction added an official way to migrate old workflow actions. This this method to migrate existing EmailAction workflow actions. This removes the need to a subclass and avoids a double entry in the workflow state action selection dropdown.

Several patches were backported for the partial navigation code used to implement the single page app behavior. The URL provided for redirection after POST actions is now processed and cleaned up instead of being used as-is. Dead code and repeated logic was unified along with some JavaScript ES6 updates.

The custom status code used for AJAX redirection is now configurable via the APPEARANCE_AJAX_REDIRECTION_CODE settings. The default value of the setting is 278 to retain backward compatibility.

The search model reference used for the search view and API are now unified and well defined using new SEARCH_MODEL_NAME_KWARG constant.

The search model attribute to be passed to the search view and API is the primary key (pk) and not the name.


The default Sentry client traces_sample_rate was reduced from 0.25 to 0.05.


Improvement to the new document link condition logic we backported from the 4.2 branch. These changes ensure that the new document and file links access work like their respective views. The links will be active only when the access is granted for the source as well as the document/document type.
