27 Mar 2018 This update adds one call to the Scripting API and a fix to the RSS Venue
- RF-71 Remove XML escaping from RSS Venue CDATA’ed entities. Going all the way back to at least the 4.5.5 release and enhancement RF-9, the description and content:encoded entities have been both XML escaped and wrapped in CDATA. This is wrong and does cause problems for software that depends on it being done correctly (yes, there are work-arounds, but that is the ‘two wrongs making a right’). This releases removes the XML escaping for these CDATA sections of the feed created by the RSS Venue. This *should* not create any problems, because even if a work-around was employed, unescaping an unescaped entity causes no issue.
If you don’t know what any of that means … you almost certainly do not need to know.
- RF-68 OpenGraph script utility. To support internal requirements, we now have a script utility to load OpenGraph data for a provided URL. This is likely not perfect, but has been tested enough for our own internal use with client processes, that I’m confident it can be of some use to the rest of the ResultFlow community. See the documentation and ask for clarification and help in Slack if required. Moving forward, we will probably load OG data at the Feed level so this scripting is no longer required, but that’s a “forward looking statement.” 🙂
