Functionality: 

Multilevel Authoring (#3783)

The new multilevel authoring allows the ability to manage content using different permissions. Thereby, central marketing can make sure that local subsidiaries are only allowed to change specific, relevant content. The overall design and content, which have been defined in smartPerform, stays identical in all locations.

New configuration UI for Client/Server update process (#5946)

Due to the new multi-level authoring feature, we redesigned the Client/Server dialog. You can now specify different settings for destination and source. Thereby, a system which acts as both a client and a server in a multi-level authoring environment, can provide different destinations for the data.

smartPerform Automatic System Update Notification (#5949)

In case you have a valid support agreement, smartPerform will now constantly look for system updates on our servers. If an update is found, it will prompt a download dialog. Of course, this only happens on systems running in CMS mode.

PDF external link behavior (#5210)

Links to websites in PDF documents can now be displayed directly within smartPerform, when our rotatable PDF viewer is used.

All new rotable Web-Brower (#5895)

We finally did it! We now have a new Web browser, based on Chrome, which can be rotated, meaning it fits much better with smartDesk usage.

Easy Role Selection / Preview for CMS (#6055)

We have integrated a new tool into the CMS mode which allows you to preview the multi-level permission rights for different author . It also gives you the ability to instantly change the audience role for your configured access rights or the active language. Now, it’s much easier to be sure that you are using these features with their intended purpose. For example, it is now much easier to create multi-language setups of smartPerform projects, since you can easily switch between the content visible for each language.

Copy & Paste Fortschrittsanzeige (#4889)

Copying large amounts of content between different smartPerform projects can be time consuming. When you copy files or containers between or within projects, a lovely progress bar will now show you how much time or date is remaining.

Picture reduction  (#5082)

Has your projects grown enormously large? Often, large image files, such as TIFFs, are one of the unnecessary reasons for this to happen. smartPerform now automatically converts and reduces the resolution of these files, keeping your project compact while still making sure that everything looks great on the screen.

Temporary Media Import: Disable „Capture“ Dialog (#5201)

When using the temporary media import logic function, items will now be imported without showing a “capture” dialog for the preview image. Instead, a preview will be shot automatically.

Node Style Templates: Template Embedding (#5237/#5849)

Node styles can come in quite handy when designing multiple or many projects. However, until now, it was quite difficult to give those templates to other users. Now templates can be embedded using the new Content Inspector within your project so that others working on the project can use them as well.

Sketch Node: Allow Different Preview and Background image for sketches (#5457)

The appearance of Sketch Nodes (e.g. used as digital whiteboards) can now be customized the same way as other nodes. This means you can assign a different preview image to make it fit your presentation.

New Project folder Layout (#5491)

smartPerform 2.3 has some major internal changes as well. This means that the way we structure the project folders has changed considerably. A project that has been converted to version 2.3 won’t be readable in earlier versions. There are also no workarounds to get it running again. So please, make sure you have a backup before updating to the new version.

Import Live Video: if the default devices are not available they should be marked red (#5634)
When you move a project that uses, “live video,” nodes to a computer that has different live video devices (or none), the setting will be stored but marked red, so that you can see why there is no image.
Menu Bar: Menu Bar overlays content with Nodepadding set to 0 (#5741)
Did you notice that the, “Menu,” was sometimes overlapping the navigation bar of nodes? This has now been improved by allowing the possibility to change the position of the menu within the configuration (under Plugins).
Add support for showing widgets in screen saver (#5792)
You can now display widgets (e.g. traffic, clock, or weather currently) as a screensaver.
Temporary Media Import: Integrate Setting to activate this option in “Container Properties” (#5818)
We have slightly changed the way the automatic content import, via Container-Sync is configured. If the path should be configured via Logic, the Container first has to be enabled to be available for this in its properties.
Node: set maximum node Size (#5834)
smartDesk: You can now specify a maximum node size. You can specify this in the global configuration under “nodes behavior”. This allows you to make sure that users don’t cover the whole screen for everyone else by zooming a node too big
Kiosk Mode: disable edge feedback for pen movements in form viewer nodes (#5891)
We improved our KIOSK mode configuration. It now also disables the so called “edge feedback” from Windows which led to moving the whole screen when scrolling in websites or Excel documents.
Designer Edition: make designer edition more usable (#5892)
We improved the designer edition of smartPerform by adjusting the size of the watermark for smaller screens. If you click on it, it will fade out for 5 seconds.
Container synchronization: nodes do not use completely the space of attached container  (#5902)
We further improved Container synchronization so that it also works better with attached Containers (in smartDesk).
NavigationBar – independent foreground and background color (#5912)
To achieve an even better match for a CI, it is now possible to set the colors for the navigation bar of a node independent of other color settings.
Real-Time Synchronization: Add easier support for container-sync (#5920)

We improved the functionality of our real-time-synchronization (e.g. remote show via tablet) when using smartPerform projects that use “container-sync”. Such dynamically imported content required a client/server setup, which is now no longer needed (but still recommended, to make sure all systems have the same content).
Content-Display Coverflow: throw “Node Focus” event when Viewer is opened (#5923)
Clicking/tapping on a node within a coverflow (and thereby opening this node) now also throws a “node focus” event which you can use with the Logic Designer to trigger other events.
License Option: Add “number of days after activation” as runtime limitation option (#5950)
Our license server adds a new flexible option: We can now provide licenses that run for a given number of days after activation. After that, the license can be used for another PC again. This can come in handy for rental jobs or for floating licenses.
Content Inspector: Search/Filter functionality for table (#5954)
Our new Content Inspector, while up to now being a tool mainly for support and product specialists, is now available for all. It gives a tabular overview of all the content in a project and allows sorting and filtering and easy (multi-) editing of nodes. Furthermore, it allows the ability to find and delete orphan elements in a project and manage the node templates, e.g. embed some directly in a project.
New Document Node Type (#5957)

When using smartPerform as a user interface for meeting-room environments (converse!) or as a sales tool on a Laptop, it may be useful to access programs and documents which smartPerform does not support directly. While it is possible to start an external application from within smartPerform, it is now possible to define a “custom document” node type. Thereby, one can specify which non-supported file types smartPerform can be imported. These will be automatically linked to the appropriate external application. This means that the whole meeting or presentation can be managed from within smartPerform.
Only allow Client/Server Updates when both use the same version  (#6044)

smartPerform now checks in a Client/Server setup, if the content from a Server has been created with the same smartPerform version. If not, an update will not be performed. Therefore, we make sure that changes in smartPerform functionality can only be deployed to clients, even when those are updates to a new version.

Logic Designer: 

Optimization and Usability (#5383)

We redesigned our Logic Designer so that it allows much easier management of logic elements. New tabs allow you to have a much clearer overview of even the most complex logic. Groups and labels also help to tidy things up. A new documentation option allows you to make it easier for others to understand your logic configuration. Several further usability enhancements are in place – go check them out. Up next: make it beautiful 😉

“Close Node” as Input (#5555)

This new input element allows using an event when a node is closed.
Load Background Media – “reset” input pin (#5598)
The Logic element “load background media” now has a reset input pin so that it is easier to get back to the background you have set in the configuration.
New Input for “Shell Execute” Command (#5677)
The “shell execute” command can now receive the command as an input, e.g.  via network or from an XML file.
New command item to switch to or close external application(s) (#5959)
This logic element give you the ability to close specified external applications or to switch to such applications. Thereby, smartPerform can be much easier connected with other specified applications, e.g. a digital signage tool.

Functionality: 

Multi-sided Sketch (#5198)

Our sketches grow with your ideas. From now on, you can create multiple pages in a sketch and easily create a new page in order to continue with the development of your idea.

Document Progress Display (#5522)

When a progress bar is being utilized on a document with your mouse or finger, for example, by scrubbing through a video, the number of minutes is displayed. In PPT, PDF, Excel, etc., the page number is displayed. Thus, the user can have a better understanding of where they are in a document or, where they are proceeding to.

Client-Server Update (#5234)

So far, the synchronization of clients was automatically carried out in the presentation mode of smartPerform. From now on it is possible to choose between an automatic or manual sync with query when the application starts. Especially useful as a sales tool, when unintentional updates right before a presentation are not desired.

Quicker Startup (#5631)

From now on, in even less time than before, have smartPerform up, running, waiting to be used. smartPerform starts up significantly faster.

3D-Coverflow (#5605/#5577)

The size ratio the 3D-Coverflow uses has been changed from 4:3 to 16:9. Performance has also been enhanced, making it faster, allowing computers with older technology more ease with the 3D-Coverflow.

Memory (#5874)

Memory is now available with the purchase of any license.

Traffic Widget: Update (#5686/#5685)

To easily get to the start of the traffic reports, there are now two possibilities:

[if! supportLists] · [endif] Double-click on the widget and you’re right back at the beginning.

[if! supportLists] · [endif] After a certain, definable time, the widget will automatically jump back to the beginning.

With 2.2.2, filter by specific streets. For example:

A8 —>  Highway A8

A* —> all Highways

A, B#, B## —> all highways, all federal highways with a digit or two digits.

PDF Viewer (#5537)

It will be possible within the 64-bit PDF viewer to zoom by a two finger zoom gesture and by using the keyboard hotkeys, STRG with “+” and or “–”.

PDF Double-Tap to Default State (#5372)

Zooming deep into PDFs can be very useful – getting back to the original state however, sometimes difficult. With PDF Double-Tap, get back to the selected default zoom level at any time by tapping twice. Less annoyance, more fun.

Toggle Button (#5382)

Our new UI element “toggle-button“, can acquire two trigger functions at the same time. When triggered, have the toggle button perform one function, while releasing the toggle-button, the released state of the toggle-button will have a different function. In addition, graphics can be separately set for both triggered and non-triggered toggle-button states.

Snap Targets (#4611)

To make a project even more intuitive, snap target positions can now be set based on pixels. (Based on current screen and resolution).

Logic Designer: 

Sketch Building Block (#5666)

To make a project even more intuitive, snap target positions can now be set based on pixels. (Based on current screen and resolution).

delete all sketches

delete all annotations

override the predefined save-location for sketches

Sketches can be used much more dynamically, especially in the context of our XML and TCP / UDP ports.

Switch Project Update (#5621)

When switching between different smartPerform projects, choose whether a project will be displayed at it’s default home state, or at it’s most recently, displayed state. Advantage: You can switch between multiple projects without losing focus.

Home (#5554)

Home(Logic Design Variable) has been added as a new input. This allows targeted commands(for example) to be ran as soon as you go back to the home screen.
