Gadget configuration by using IAC gateway console is no longer supported
Valid from Pega Version 7.2.1
The Internet Application Composer (IAC) gateway was deprecated in Pega Platform™ 7.2.1 and is no longer supported. The IAC was used to embed a Pega Platform application, such as a gadget, on the pages of a web application that was located on your intranet, extranet, or internet site.
After an upgrade to Pega Platform 8.5, the configuration of gadgets through the IAC gateway console is no longer supported.

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.
