6.10 release notes

May 31, 2021

This page describes release information relating to all Matrix 6.10 versions including patch releases.


SAML IdP metadata configuration through Admin UI

Configuring SAML-based Single Sign-on (SSO) with Matrix can now be done completely using the Admin UI without making direct file configuration changes on the server.

A new default option for the Authentication source field is available called This SAML Account Manager.

You can input the Metadata XML configuration code from the SAML Identity Provider (IdP) you are integrating with when you select this option.

There are two ways you can do this:

  1. Paste the URL of the Metadata XML file location into the IdP Metadata XML URL field.

    You can also specify a refresh interval on how often Matrix should automatically retrieve and refresh a new version of the Metadata XML from the IdP.

    This option relies on your Matrix instance having server-to-server access to wherever the XML file is hosted.
  2. Copy the full XML code directly into the IdP Metadata XML field.

Read the SAML account manager documentation for more information on how to configure SAML SSO with Matrix.

Minor improvements

The following minor improvements were included in this version of Matrix:

  • The methods Matrix used to load some frontend UI resources were optimized to improve browser rendering speeds.

  • The layout styles for on-screen error messages and notices were improved to be easier to read and consume.

  • The asset name and asset ID in the asset information drop-down were improved to make it easier to copy and paste.

Bug fixes

May 31, 2021

  • Fixed several UI layout issues in the Remaps section on the URLs screen of all asset types.

  • Fixed an intermittent UI layout issue on the Logs screen of all asset types where the log table extended past the max-width area of the main screen.

  • Fixed an issue where the asset tree content menu would sometimes close incorrectly on certain mouse click actions.

  • Fixed an issue that occurred when an applied system default workflow schema was removed from assets, which subsequently caused the asset’s Details screen to not be editable.

  • Fixed a couple of UI layout issues where if the asset name were long enough, it would break the layout of where it appeared.

  • Fixed several issues where the HIPO modal would sometimes not complete the action and would not close.

  • Fixed an issue that caused images embedded in WYSIWYG components to not render on the frontend when the image was set as a decorative image using inline edit mode.

  • Fixed an issue where the WYSIWYG editor would sometimes not display on the frontend when used in asset builders, account managers, and custom editing interfaces.

  • Fixed an issue where morphing a user asset multiple times could sometimes corrupt the asset.
