Added the new feature update on translated assets in two scenarios:

Publish if source is not Published.
- Keep all from source translation.
- Merge source translation and target.
Asset Log view can be accessed from the Connector Settings cog.
Translate Blocks in xhtmlstring:
- Blocks within xhtmlstring previously had to be manually added to a Translation Project. Now they will be automatically included similar to standard Blocks.
Translate button link within xhtmlstring:
- Block type Button Link with text is supported for translation now.
Issues Fixed in This Release
|1||Connector now exports out the latest version of an asset rather than the latest published version.|
|2||Connector overwrites references rather than adding to existing references after translation.|
- You can now send a heartbeat message to the Clay Tablet Platform that enables it to monitor the health of the Connector. You configure this in the Translation heartbeat job page, which you open from the Scheduled Jobs section of the Admin tab.
- You can now customize the links displayed in the Link column in the Lionbridge Connector Dashboard. You configure this by specifying a non-default domain in the Asset Link text box in the Other settings tab, which you open from the Settings context menu item in the Lionbridge Connector gadget.
Recommendation: Configure this if in the Admin tab, on the Manage Websites page, the URL configured for the public website (front-end URL) is different than the domain of the environment (back-end URL). This may cause the Dashboard to display errors when loading, or prevent links from being displayed.
Issues Fixed in This Release
|3||Scrolling the list of projects in the Lionbridge Connector gadget has been optimized, and it now uses fewer client resources.|
|4||The translation background jobs have been optimized in the DXC environment.|
|5||Previously, the Connector could not retrieve blocks referenced on a page. This issue has been resolved. The Connector can now retrieve blocks that are referenced on a page in a Content Area or ContentReference fields.|
