Bloomreach Experience Manager V12.6.9 Release Notes

February 25, 2020

The new maintenance release 12.6.9 is available for general use for our customers and partners. This release includes bug fixes and improvements in core, enterprise and plugin artifacts.

The new versions of these module artifacts have been made available earlier and are now bundled up in this maintenance release. If your project uses such newer artifact versions via project pom overrides, please remove them before starting the upgrade procedure.

We encourage all projects to remain on the regular maintenance release. Using a tagged artifact that is not yet part of a maintenance release should only be done if there is a specific reason and only after testing in your specific project setup.

Update considerations

Remove Login Page Captcha Configuration

The captcha has been removed from the login page. Therefore, if your implementation project configured any of the following two configuration properties at the node /hippo:configuration/hippo:frontend/login/login/loginPage, they should be removed to prevent errors being logged during bootstrap after updating or upgrading to this release.

  • use.captcha
  • show.captcha.after.how.many.times

Update Customized Login Page

If your implementation project contains any login page customizations, those may need to be updated.

As of this release, he SimpleLoginPlugin has been removed. The DefaultLoginPlugin, which extended SimpleLoginPlugin prior to 12.6.9, now extends LoginPlugin directly. If your implementation project extended SimpleLoginPlugin, it should be updated to extend DefaultPlugin instead.

(Relevance) Add GeoLite2/GeoIP2 Database

As of this release, the GeoLite2 database is no longer distributed with the Relevance module. In earlier releases, it was pulled in through a transitive Maven dependency, this is no longer the case. Therefore, implementation projects using Relevance must manually add the database by following the instructions in Add the GeoIP2/GeoLite2 Database to a Project.
