- HTTPS support for the Linx server. Linx now makes use of a self-signed certificate to encrypt data traffic to and from the server. Note that this feature changes the default address of the Linx server from "http://localhost:8022" to "https://localhost:8022". It is also possible to configure the server to make use of a signed certificate (if desired). For more information, please read the following help file.
- Simplified user rights on the server. The existing user rights on the server have been consolidated into 3 new rights: ManageSolutions, ManageServices and RunProcesses. Note that existing rights will be converted automatically to these new rights when you do an upgrade. The following table shows a mapping from the old user rights to the new user rights:
Old Right New Right ProcessRun RunProcesses ProcessStart (None) ProcessStop (None) ServiceStart ManageServices ServiceStop ManageServices SolutionLoad ManageSolutions SolutionUnload ManageSolutions
* All users will be assigned the RunProcesses right when an upgrade is performed.
The next piece of development work (as per the roadmap) will be to convert Linx to run on .NET Framework 4. As always, comments and suggestions are welcome.
