Documentum 7.2 Released

As expected, EMC released Documentum Content Server v7.2 (along with all of the other core stack components that accompany the Content Server).  Here is EMC’s announcement.

Here are a few highlights I have gleaned from the release notes so far:

  • Content Server
    • Lots of crypto changes, improvements, and enhancements:
      • Support for Lockbox.  This adds secure key and password storage features available in D2 v4.2.
      • Longer encryption keys and stronger crypto algorithms for generating AEK and DBK.
      • Support for RSA Key Manager (RKM).
      • Stronger SSL encryption supported.
    • WORM and ViPR storage support.
    • A new Upgrade and Migration Guide that appears to be very comprehensive (Of course, time will tell).
    • New OS/DB certifications detailed in the ESRG.
  • xPlore v1.5
    • Support for cross-repository searches in query-based subscriptions.
    • CPS linguistic analysis library upgraded to provide more/better extraction and analytics.
    • Improved index rebuilds.
  • Federated Search adapter for InfoArchive
  • REST Services
    • Supports full-text searches with facets using simple search language and URI parameters.
    • The JSON representation for Type resource has changed (i.e., improved).  A “compatibility mode” is provided.
    • Supports the batching of RESTful Web service operations into one request.
  • xMS v1.2 and xCP v2.2
  • DA v7.2 supports .pem certificate chains to configure LDAP properties
  • ADTS
    • Supports Microsoft Office 2013 file formats, including Microsoft Project
    • Supports PDF split

Overall, 30 new features and 2,700 bugs squashed!  See the Release Notes for full details.

The locations for some of these downloads is not always obvious.  It looks like most of the v7.2 updates are listed as “DCTM”.  You can find most of what you need under the DCTM Platform heading; others you will have to search for.

I have been implementing Documentum solutions since 1997. In 2005, I published a book about developing Documentum solutions for the Documentum Desktop Client (ISBN 0595339689). In 2010, I began this blog as a record of interesting and (hopefully) helpful bits of information related to Documentum, and as a creative outlet.
