Updated Word merge support with Microsoft Silverlight plug-in
Valid from Pega Version 7.1.3
Starting in this release, Pega 7 features that integrate with the Word merge capability are now cross-browser. ActiveX controls (which are only compatible with Internet Explorer) have been replaced with Microsoft Silverlight. This plug-in must be downloaded separately from Microsoft because it is not shipped with Pega 7.
Common features that are affected by this change include the Specification form and Case Type landing page.
Prior to using these features, see the release note Word merge support with Microsoft Silverlight plug-in for more information about setting up their client systems.
Service responses in HTTP and REST connectors are no longer modified
Valid from Pega Version 7.1.7
The Pega 7.1.8 release correctly leaves form service responses for HTTP and REST connectors unmodified. Upgrade to this release if you experience a problem in Pega 7.1.7 where service responses for HTTP and REST connectors are modified when the declared type in the Content-Type header is
application/x-www-form-urlencoded. In this case, the responses were modified to a base 64 representation of the bytes in the string. In Pega 7.1.8, responses of type
application/x-www-form-urlencoded are mapped to the property designated on the Connector record.
