Say hi to BlueSpice 3.1!

New functions, an optimized user experience and bugfixes: With BlueSpice 3.1 we have put a lot of effort into our customers’ needs. Read along to see what you can expect.

Good news first: BlueSpice 3.1 is now available with Semantic MediaWiki 3.0. In addition, you will find numerous improvements regarding security and technical issues. But not only “under the hood” a lot has happened. There is substantial improvement in the user interface as well. Let’s take a look:

Redesigned page title area:

  • More space for your editorial work with the optional full screen mode
  • Improvements for visually handicapped users of screen readers

Optimization of the search function

  • Natural search results with base names taking precedence over subpages
  • Autocompletion with multiple infixes (e. g. the search for “blue 3” leads to BlueSpice 3.1)
  • Pages with similar terms can now be found in the flyout “page information”

Expansion and optimization of the VisualEditor

  • Selection in the upload dialog whether a link directs to the file page in the wiki or to the file itself
