Released : 12 April 2017
15.10.0 - New features

15.10.0 - Selected improvements and bug fixes
- Curator rule editing now supports custom structured parameters for most actions.

- Added support for configuring acceptable SSL cipher suites and protocols.
- Web crawler will no longer report 'invalid' protocols like data: and tel:.
- Introduced standardised filters for converting CSV or JSON to XML.
- Fixed overwriting of changed cookie values during form interaction authentication.
- Improved URL drilldown selection within content auditor.
- Introduced profile management interface.
- Introduced a default timeout (50 seconds) for IncludeURL tags, avoiding blocking threads forever in some cases.
- Fixed cases where collection update progress would not be displayed after starting an update.
- Fixed date sorting to work correctly for past and future documents (rather than being based on proximity to current date).
- The query processors (padre-sw) -SF option now accepts regex.
- The version of Jsoup included has been upgraded to 1.10.2.
- Log files are no longer created when collections which do not exist for the current Funnelback installation are requested.
15.10.0 - Upgrade Issues
- Due to the improved password hashing mechanism, HTTP Basic Authentication for APIs is considerably slower than in previous versions. If performance is a concern, API users are advised to switch to token-based authentication.
- The sessions database schema has changed to allow for longer queries. The inbuilt session databases will be automatically upgraded, however if you are using a external database for sessions you will need to run update-session-db.groovy with the appropriate driver and url.
- Due to the new IncludeURL default timeout, IncludeURL calls expected to take longer then 50 seconds should manually set a higher timeout.
15.10.0 - Notice
- Please be aware that 15.10 is the last version of Funnelback which will support running on Windows Server 2008.
