    v46 v47  
    1212* Server-side HTML generation with Thymeleaf templates (#365). 
    1313* 3rd-party components are updated, most notably Neo4j 1.2 -> 1.8 (#350). 
     14* A different storage aproach for the Access Control information brings back the performance known from pre-4.0.12 (#344). 
    1415 
    1516New Features: 
     
    1718 
    1819GUI Improvements: 
     20* Cluster move: Moving an association moves the visually connected subnetwork (#327). 
    1921* More informative page panel: topics which are already visible on the canvas are displayed with an disabled icon. This provides a useful hint when revealing topics (#308). 
    2022* Differentiated gestures for revealing topics via the page panel: a) clicking the topic's icon reveals it, b) clicking the topic's label reveals ''and'' focuses it (#387). 
    21 * When the user changes an association's type the form is updated immediately. New fields are displayed on the spot. The user must no longer leave and re-enter the form (#347). 
     23* Page panel: associations are grouped by type, using the association type names as group headers (#256). 
     24* When the user changes an association's type the form is updated immediately. The user must no longer leave and re-enter the form (#347). 
     25* Once association is created Edit mode is entered automatically (#314). 
    2226 
    2327Improvements: 
     28* A different storage aproach for the Access Control information brings back the performance known from DM 4.0.11 and before (#344). 
    2429* Better support for virtual host environments: the new config property `dm4.host.url` allows the admin to specify the installation's public URL. This is relevant for plugin's which make use of `DeepaMehtaUtils.isDeepaMehtaURL()` or the Files API's `getRepositoryPath()` [a9ffcf77]. 
     30* Data model: Meta Types are applicable as child types in association definitions (#363). 
    2531 
    2632Bug Fixes: 
     33* Handle transitive plugin service dependencies (#351). 
     34* Redeploy the Core while active HTTP sessions exist (#299). 
    2735* Edit meta type view configuration via REST API (#378). 
    2836 
    2937Plugin Development Framework: 
    30 * A plugin consumes services by annotation. The ''consumedServiceInterfaces'' setting in `plugin.properties` is no longer required (#367). 
    31 * A plugin's provided service is automatically picked up by the Core. The ''providedServiceInterface'' setting in `plugin.properties` is no longer required (#368). 
     38* A plugin consumes services by annotation. The ''consumedServiceInterfaces'' config property is no longer required (#367). 
     39* A plugin's provided service is automatically picked up by the Core. The ''providedServiceInterface'' config property is no longer required (#368). 
    3240* Flexible REST resources registration: a plugin which provides no Root Resource can still provide JAX-RS provider classes [2b464811]. 
     41* Client-side load mechanism for auxiliary scripts: scripts located in `script/helper/` are loaded synchronously ''before'' the plugin is loaded (#372). 
     42* The "association" part of a RelatedTopic is serialized (#266). 
     43* Refactored internal object fetch/store code (#340). 
    3344* 3 new core events: `PreUpdateAssociation`, `PostUpdateAssociation`, `IntroduceAssociationType` [654d9c7b][3645932c]. 
    34 * Data model: Meta Types are applicable as child types in association definitions (#363). 
    35 * Client-side load mechanism for auxiliary scripts: scripts located in `script/helper/` are loaded synchronously ''before'' the plugin is loaded (#372). 
     45* New client-side event `option_topics` allows filtering selection lists (comboboxes and checkbox lists) (#345).
