Posted on Posted in blog, Frontpage, news, product

Today we are pleased to announce the release of Inmanta Service Orchestrator, version 4.4.0.

In this article, we highlight some of the notable features since release 4.3.0, more specifically the changes to the Web Console. The full changelog of the Inmanta Service Orchestrator release is available in our documentation (access to commercial documentation requires free registration) with all improvements, new features, and bug fixes.

This release is the final major update in the 4.x (ISO 4) line. In the upcoming days, we will release the new 5.x (ISO 5) line.

Changes to the Web Console

Release 4.4.0 completes the transition from the old UI (Dashboard) to the new one (Web Console). The Web Console now includes all capabilities of the old Dashboard, besides other significant improvements and bug fixes. Therefore, the new Web Console eliminates the need to switch between the two GUIs to retrieve your intended piece of information. The old Dashboard remains availble for now.

Environments overview

On the landing page, you are now presented with the environment section, allowing you to add, delete, and modify environments.
