PointFire 365 v1.1 release
Posted by Martin Laplante on 11 January 2017 03:06 PM

This is an update release for PointFire 365 for SharePoint Online, part of Office 365. 

This release corrects a number of issues in the previous release, and adds new functionality.  It also has dramatically faster performance when redirecting pages.

New functionality includes:

  • License key applies to the entire site collection, not just one site
  • Added more license categories
  • Allow filtering of list view webparts and search webparts on pages other than the default list/library view page
  • “Manage Variations” functionality, similar to on-premise version
  • Redirection now runs much faster or pre-emptively, by caching some site page information in your browser.

Bug fixes include:

  • Error due to "_spPageContextInfo.pageListId" undefined.
  • jquery undefined error.
  • Other dependencies on jQuery loading
  • Errors in console for some page types that do not have an associated list
  • Improved behaviour in case of license expiry
  • Better detection of the current version of PointFire
  • Improvements to localization
  • Better behaviour when user reloads a filtered page after the language or the filtering preference has changed
  • Webpart menu better detects when a webpart is being edited
  • Resolved issues when showing the display language of a webpart
  • On activation, some languages were being added whether the user specified them or not
  • Sometimes “Unfiltered” had no effect when PointFire was recently installed or subsites had changed.
  • Many small fixes and improvements

Known issues:

  • Certain PointFire pages will not be localized correctly if PointFire is actived with one set of languages and later activated with a different set of languages. A workaround is available.
  • Multilingual webpart settings ribbon icon dialog will repeat "Filter Query" if it is called several times on the same page.
  • Display this webpart in..., the checkmark in the menu is sometimes not reliable. Use the multilingual webpart settings ribbon icon dialog instead.

PointFire makes SharePoint truly multilingual and lets your users collaborate in their language.  Two different users going to the same page on the same site will each see it almost entirely in their language, both UI and content, without using Variations.  And when used in combination with PointFire 2016, the hybrid cloud is here!

To get your copy, go to http://community.icefire.ca/index.php?/Knowledgebase/List/Index/1/pointfire-installation-packages and log in or create an account.

The fully-featured trial version can be downloaded for free and can be used for development and testing, with some pre-sale support.

We thank everyone in many countries who provided feedback during the beta testing program or after installing version 1.0 for their valuable input.

PointFire 365 v1.1 reproduces the most important functionality of PointFire 2016 in the cloud.  Some additional features will be added in PointFire 365 v2.0, in a few weeks.

PointFire 365 v1.0.2.0 Update Release
Posted by Martin Laplante on 24 October 2016 05:47 PM

This is an update release for PointFire 365 for SharePoint Online, part of Office 365.

This release corrects some issues in the privious release with intermittent errors when some Javascript libraries are slow to load.  It also clarifies some confusing errors that occur when the license expires and some functionality is disabled, and makes license expiry behaviour more consistent.  It corrects some inconsistencies in messages and button labels.  In addition it eliminates a console error message (not visible to the user) that was registered on some pages that do not require any action from PointFire.

Deploying PointFire 2013

It is recommended that you run the installation on the server where Central Administration is located, that "Microsoft SharePoint Foundation Web Application" is started on all application and all web servers before installingans that in Central Administration -> System Settings -> Manage services on server -> Microsoft SharePoint Foundation Web Application is started. Once PointFire 2013 is installed on the target server you can deploy the feature by running the PFConfiguration tool:

Once PointFire 2013 is installed on the target server you can deploy the feature by running the PFConfiguration tool:

                Start ->PointFire 2013 ->PFConfig

Note: If you experience issues running the configuration tool from the shortcut, you can navigate to the PointFire directory and run PFConfig or one of the installation scripts directly.

                C:\Program Files\IceFire\PointFire2013

  • PFConfig.exe – PointFire Deployment Manager
  • InstallPointFire.ps1 - to install PointFire using PowerShell.
  • UpgradePointFire.ps1 - Upgrade PointFire using PowerShell.
  • RemovePointFire.ps1 - To retract the solution using PowerShell

Note: Deploying using the scripts requires additional configuration steps. Please see the install guide for detailed information.

Updating PointFire 2013

If you are updating an existing PointFire 2013 deployment, launch the PointFire Deployment Manager and follow through the upgrade process, or retract then re-deploy PointFire, or navigate to the installation directory to run the upgrade script.

Note: If configuration keys in the web.config files have been edited manually after PFConfig initially set them, using PFConfig to update the PointFire may erase or overwrite some of those keys.  For safety, note the values of the keys currently in web.config prior to updating.
