Previously, Squiz Matrix did not send cacheable headers for SSL encrypted requests.

This feature addresses this issue by adding new settings to the Cache Manager's Send Cacheable Header screen, allowing you to specify the protocol when cacheable headers will be sent (HTTP, HTTPS or both). Additional options allow you to configure the cache-control level for both HTTP and HTTPS protocols.

WYSIWYG Insert Link Tool: Direct Links to Asset External Target URLs

The WYSIWYG's Insert Link tool allows you to insert a hyperlink to an external site or an internal asset. Previously, however, this tool, when creating links to Link and Redirect Page assets, would create a link directly to that asset (e.g. "./?a=123").

This features introduces new functionality that allows you to link directly to the target URLs of Link and Redirect Page assets.

A new Asset Type field has been added to the Insert Link tool. This field allows you to specify whether the link is to a Link or Redirect Page asset or, if not, any other asset.

When a user selects ether the Link Asset or Redirect Page Asset options, only assets of those types will be able to be selected in the Select Asset field. Once an asset is selected, and a global keyword replacement will be automatically printed in the Link field, linking directly to the target URL of the asset, as follows:

  • %globals_asset_attribute_link_url:123%
  • %globals_asset_attribute_redirect_url:123%  

This feature has been added to aid editors and simply the process of linking to external urls on Matrix assets.
