  2. Connect AWS with Server Role
    For those utilizing AWS S3 to store media files, eBuilderCMS 3.1.90 brings the convenience of connecting without the need for access keys and secrets. By using Server Role, you can seamlessly integrate with AWS S3, enhancing both security and simplicity.

  3. Enhanced Cookie Security
    eBuilderCMS now safeguards against cookie replay attacks. When a user logs out, the cookie is promptly removed from the server, preventing unauthorized logins via the same cookie.

  4.  Integrated ASP.Net Logging
    Previously, eBuilderCMS depended on operating system logs for framework-related errors. With this release, a new setting enables ASP.Net logs to be included in the eBuilder Logs. This comprehensive logging approach covers both error and critical entries, streamlining troubleshooting and monitoring.

Performance Enhancements

  1. Optimized Routing Algorithm
    eBuilderCMS has overhauled its routing algorithm, resulting in a remarkable 70% reduction in database query execution for moderate websites. This optimization enhances overall website responsiveness.

  2. Distributed Caching for Configuration and Custom Settings
    To further reduce database queries, eBuilderCMS introduces distributed caching for Configuration and Custom Settings. This enhancement is estimated to reduce 5% of total database queries, significantly boosting website rendering speed.

  3. Output Cache for Improved Scalability
    A new feature, the Output Cache, temporarily stores generated output in the InMemory Cache. This smart caching strategy alleviates the database load even during traffic spikes, allowing for more concurrent requests and improved website performance.

  4. Efficient Record ID Retrieval
    Developers will appreciate the ability to retrieve the highest row ID from a table. This feature empowers them to calculate the next record ID without the need to retrieve all records from the table, streamlining database interactions.
