Previously, when a user was logged out of Squiz Matrix because their IP changed and SQ_CONF_ALLOW_IP_CHANGE was set to true, neither an error or a system.security.* message would be sent. This meant that the only way to figure out why users were intermittently losing their session was to have prior knowledge of this setting.

This feature had been added so that Matrix will log logouts due to IP changing in the system logs. For example:

[2011-05-23 15:11:23][12:Root User][1024:mysource notice][ ] [system.security.logout.ip_change - remote_addr:;sessionid:;] (User Automatically Logged Out) - User "Root User" was logged out since their IP address changed from to   

A-Z Listing: Defining the Layout of Individual Letters on the Navigation List  

On a multiple page A-Z asset listing, the  navigation character list displays links to the different alphabetised pages on the listing. This feature adds the ability to format the individual letters on this list.

This feature utilises the asset listing's existing Page Link and Current Link formats, which were not previously used on an A-Z asset listing.

On an A-Z listing, the Page Link Format will now define the layout of each individual letter on the linked character list, while the Current Page Format will define the layout of letters that contain no results.

These formats use the existing and keyword replacements. For example, you could format the letters on the list so that letters with results will be in bold, while letters with no results will be struck out.

The feature gives users greater control over the layout of their A-Z listings, in line with the options available on a regular asset listing.
