A new trigger condition has been added to Squiz Matrix to evaluate whether the user who fired the trigger is an LDAP user or not.

When this condition is added, you can specify whether the condition is met if the user IS or IS NOT an LDAP user. This condition will match against any LDAP user types, including Simple Edit LDAP users, Backend LDAP users and regular LDAP users.

NOTICE Links for News Item Summary and Body (#6235)

NOTICE links within Squiz Matrix are created to indicate that something will be affected if the linked asset is deleted, for example, if an asset is the Index or Home Page of your site, or if an asset has been linked within the bodycopy content of another asset.

Previously, however, NOTICE links were not supported for linked assets within the Summary and Body content fields of News Item assets. This could cause potential issues with Safe Trash, which would look for any NOTICE links before deleting trashed items; no warning would be given.

This feature extends the usage of NOTICE links to also include links within News Items Summary and Body.

Multiple Payment Gateways on E-Commerce Checkout and Form Page Set Ups (#6375) 

When creating a new e-commerce system, payment gateways are specified to provide users with a secure system to pay for their items.

Previously, e-commerce systems within Squiz Matrix were restricted to a single payment gateway. This meant that users were not provided with the option to choose the payment method used to complete the payment process.

This feature introduces the ability of specifying multiple payment gateways on e-commerce systems configured within Squiz Matrix. 

As was previously, payment gateways are specified on either the Default Delivery Method or Ecommerce Form Page assets, depending on the e-commerce system that has been created. When specifying the payment methods available on these assets, a More... button will now be available, allowing you to create additional fields to specify multiple payment gateways. 

This feature has been introduced alongside the new PayPal Express Checkout payment option, in order to provide users with both PayPal and regular methods of payment.

New PayPal Express Checkout Payment Gateway (#6376) 

PayPal's Express Checkout payment method enables customers to complete transactions within PayPal, using their own shipping and billing information stored in their account.

This feature introduces the new PayPal Express Checkout Payment Gateway, allowing you to implement PayPal's express payment option within your own e-commerce systems within Squiz Matrix. 

The PayPal Express Checkout Payment Gateway allows you to enter the credentials of the API configured within your PayPal account and set the currency type and button image.

When a customer selects the items they want to purchase and enters the checkout process, they will be redirected to PayPal where they can log in and confirm their payment details; they will then be returned to Matrix where they can confirm this payment, to complete their e-commerce order. 

New SecurePay Direct Post Payment Gateway (#6385) 

Squiz Matrix's existing SecurePay eSec Payment Gateway asset allows users to create a payment solution in conjunction with SecurePay's now defunct eSec payment gateway.

This feature adds a new payment gateway for SecurePay's newer Direct Post payment solution.

The SecurePay Direct Post Payment Gateway allows you to connect with your SecurePay merchant account, configuring the settings of the payment gateway and defining its layout.

This new payment gateway is available to users within Australia and will accept American Express, Diners Club, JCB, MasterCard and VISA cards.
