BloomReach Experience Manager V13.0.1 Release Notes

March 20th, 2019

The new maintenance release 13.0.1 is available for general use for our customers and partners. This release includes bug fixes and improvements in core, enterprise and plugin artifacts.

The new versions of these module artifacts have been made available earlier and are now bundled up in this maintenance release. If your project uses such newer artifact versions via project pom overrides, please remove them before starting the upgrade procedure.

We encourage all projects to remain on the regular maintenance release. Using a tagged artifact that is not yet part of a maintenance release should only be done if there is a specific reason and only after testing in your specific project setup.

Known issues

  • We have found an issue with the enterprise-licensed Replication Add-on of Bloomreach Experience Manager, which makes it work less reliably in versions 13.0 and 13.1 than it used to in previous versions. While we are working on fixing this issue, we recommend users of this add-on not to upgrade to version 13 yet. We expect to have this issue fixed in version 13.2.
