6.13 release notes

August 10, 2021

This page describes release information relating to all Matrix 6.13 versions including patch releases.


Admin UI performance improvements

Some significant performance improvements for creating assets and loading asset screens have been introduced in this version of Matrix.

The first improvement was made for creating assets through the Admin UI, which is now over 2x faster for most asset types.

Previously, the creation process loaded the details screen of the asset unnecessarily, which caused the creation dialog box’s “created” screen to get delayed until this layout was loaded. Removing this unnecessary load has now significantly improved the speed of creating assets.

The other related improvement was loading asset type picker UI components used on several asset screens, such as asset listings, search pages, custom edit layouts, and paint layouts.

Previously, this component alone took a long time to load server-side due to its extensive list of asset type data to be fetched. This load has now been optimized and utilizes better server-side caching, which improves the load speed of all screens that use this data-heavy component.

Bug fixes

The following bug fixes were resolved in this version of Matrix.

  • Fixed an issue where entering values into the expiry field of a JSON web token asset would sometimes clear the value after save.

  • Fixed an issue on the workflow schema asset details screen where clicking on the Edit this step link would navigate the user to a UI without the toolbar or sidebar

  • Fixed a layout issue where asset pickers would have text overlapping its controls if the asset name was too long.

  • Fixed an issue on the preview screen where clicking Update preview without making any preview changes would cause the preview frame to freeze.

  • Fixed several UI layout issues on trigger actions and conditions.
