October 2022 release highlights

  • Variant child data will be used when available to enhance user experience and improve SEO by showing the content and documents specific to the child variant. If empty, parent content and documents will continue to display.
  • Improved documentation for Hawksearch sorting and pagination.
  • Added fields for Open Graph image and title for Product List and Search Results pages.

Important notes/Breaking changes

Medium to high risk breaking changes:

  • Pagination data moved from GetProductCollection handler chain to RunProductSearch Pipeline. This pagination data is in a new pipe and clients/partners should look at their extensions to ensure that they are not overriding this pipe. If they are overriding this pipe they will need to ensure that they pull the logic from our new pipe (ProcessSearchResponsePagination) into their override.

Low risk breaking changes include:

  • Added threading analyzers. Conversion to async. Non-extensible class; controller route unchanged; interface method name change. Binary breaking.

Partners/Developers: You can view a cumulative list of breaking changes, including Spire breaking changes, at the bottom of this page. (Note the two tabs at the bottom of the spreadsheet: one for cumulative breaking changes, one for Spire breaking changes.)
