Known issue: Translation and Feedback service are known to reserve up to 1GB of RAM each currently, we are working on reducing this footprint for a future Cumulative Update, customers not using the Online Editor can in the meantime disable these services if necessary without functional impact of the software.
If you have changed the web.config, for example to enable HTTPS, this will be overwritten by the update. You can make a copy of the current web.config and replace it after the upgrade. We will look at improving this behavior for future updates.
This update includes the following fixes:
New functionality: The Online Editor now displays Term recognition hits from server-based termbases that are used in the project. New functionality: You can now create projects that prevent project file downloads for certain users. There is a new permission called Secure Project File Download. Users assigned this permission are the only ones who can download the project files in SDL Trados GroupShare, SDL Trados Studio and SDL Online Editor. Furthermore, users in the Online Editor are prevented from copying text. This feature enforces customer data confidentiality by restricting data access to authorized personnel only. New functionality: The Online Editor has been updated and now provides a better user experience based on customer feedback. New functionality: Introduced a undo check-out mechanism to allow check-in of files when conversion from Online Editor to SDLXLIFF failed. New functionality: Added the ability to select/de-select all status in Background tasks view
Performance enhancements for SDL Trados GroupShare:
Optimized the performance of TM lookup operations, which provide a ~20% performance increase compared to CU07 and earlier.
Optimized the performance of TM confirm operations when confirming segments.
Significantly overhauled the TM Maintenance search algorithm, which is now significantly faster when not using RegEx. This now also prevents the timeout that caused an "An error occurred when searching the Translation Memory. The TM may contain invalid Translation Units." error. Note: For this fix to apply you also need at least Studio 2019 or a future Studio 2017 CU as it involved changes on both ends.
Opening the settings page in SDL Trados Studio is now significantly faster
SDL Trados GroupShare displays a neater web UI, by hiding dynamically generated libraries
The default timeout for server farms was increased from 30 seconds to 10 minutes to avoid timeout issues with long-running operations.
Updated the online documentation with supported browser information.
