The result list now also displays the configuration ID of Web Dynpro component /UI2/ADAPTATION_PAGE. Translators need to provide this configuration ID in transaction SE63 to translate the text of custom tiles, catalogs, or group titles.For more information, see Checking Launchpad Content and Translating Tiles, Catalogs, and Groups in the Customizing Layer.
The launchpad is now one of the default applications available in the UI theme designer when customizing a theme.
For more information about the UI theme designer, seeUI Theme Designer.
Locked groups are now displayed at the top of the launchpad, above the My Home group. You cannot move locked groups.
For more information, see Personalizing the Home Page.
The cache buster for SAP Fiori apps has been enhanced as follows:
The system can now generate specific cache buster tokens for single SAP Fiori apps.
As a result, the browser only reloads those applications that have been updated on the server.
Cache invalidation can be done automatically.
You no longer need to run a program manually after a software update. Instead, you must schedule the program Calculation of SAPUI5 Application Index for SAPUI5 Repositories (/UI5/APP_INDEX_CALCULATE) to run at regular intervals. This program calculates the SAPUI5 application index based on the current content of the SAPUI5 repositories. The SAP Fiori launchpad uses the SAPUI5 application index to identify which applications have been updated.
When users save an app as a tile, the tile preview is now updated as the user enters the details.For more information, see Saving an SAP Fiori App as a Tile.
APIs are provided to enable adding items to the User Preferences dialog box, adding a title to the shell header, and enabling the data loss protection mechanism.
