The permissions system in Oqtane is an essential core service as it manages access control within the framework. As part of the the initial creation of Oqtane, certain administrative functions were identified as requiring more privileges and were therefore made available only to users in the Administrators role. Although this approach works well for many installations, there are scenarios in larger organizations where a more fine-grained approach is required for delegated administration. The Oqtane 3.3.0 re
The 3.3.0 release is primarily focused on flexibility, as the permissions system has been enhanced to support a new type of API permissions that provide developers with additional opportunities to create sophisticated modern web applications. This release also includes performance optimizations, enhancements to file management, and numerous user experience improvements including the addition of a new AutoComplete component.
Oqtane has always contained a SyncManager on the server which has traditionally only been used to synchronize specific server-side events with client-side state. In Oqtane 3.2.1 this capability has now been included using the standard .NET EventHandler capability in conjunction with the SyncManager to raise SyncEvents (which inherit from the standard .NET EventArgs).
The 3.2.1 release is primarily focused on stabilization. This includes performance improvements to the client startup logic for Blazor Hybrid and Blazor WebAssembly, improvements to base url handling and static resources for component resusability in .NET MAUI, support for Roles as part of OpenID Connect integrations, as well as a new capability to capture server-side events in your custom code.
Blazor applications utilize a client/server architecture. This means that in the majority of Blazor hosting models, a client application is deployed to a specific client device or process which interacts with the server using standard HTTP requests. One of the biggest challenges in most client/server models is how to ensure the client stays updated with the latest fixes and improvements. Obviously the more automated and seamless this process can be from an end user perspective, the more successful it will b
The 3.1.4 release is primarily focused on stabilization. This includes a variety of performance optimizations, user experience improvements, and localization enhancements. Based on the fact that performance is one of overarching goals for the framework, we conducted some load testing and optimized the most frequently executed methods both from a client and server workload perspective.
Microservices have exploded in popularity in the past decade, with many organizations attempting to use this architectural approach to avoid the limitations of large, monolithic systems. While much has been written about using this approach to decompose the backend of enterprise software applications, many companies continue to struggle with how to manage the frontend.
