We expect to release one more maintenance update this month. It will introduce a few features that are missing in Advanced Search 3.0 – “deep” search and history. History is expected to be displayed in both Search box and Adavanced Search forms.

Another feature of the upcoming maintenance update is enhanced RTF editor. 

Maintenance update will also introduce a new folder structure and naming for JavaScript and CSS files. We are moving things into ~/js and ~/css folders. Old folders ~/touch and ~/scripts will be removed. This is being done in a preparation for the native client generation. This is also the reason why we will replace XML format of data controller files with JSON. This is a big change that will not affect anything in the app. Application will perform internal transformation of JSON files into XML, so no behavior of the apps will be changed. JSON format of data controllers is core of offline feature and is the foundation of the upcoming CoT v9.

We expect the update to go out in a couple of weeks.

It will be followed by release that will bring to life the native apps. Expected release date is the last week of July or early August.
