We’ve just released an update to the Collaborate’s 2.0 package series, named 2.0-Preview-15. The package has two notable changes - it removes the “checking for changes” blocking dialog and also introduces a manual rescan button as the only mechanism for pulling in newly modified files. The full release notes can be found here. Given this change in experience, the 2.0-preview-15 package will live alongside the existing 1.2.16 package as an option. Here’s how you can decide which to use: 1.2.16 is a good option for smaller projects or teams who do not mind the “Checking for Changes” blocking dialog box. The service will continue to automatically pull in newly modified files without additional action needed. 2.0-Preview-15 is a good option for larger projects or teams who found the “Checking for Changes” blocking dialog to be highly irritating. The service will no longer automatically pull in newly modified files. Instead, you will need to trigger a scan for potential changes via the “rescan” button. The rescan will not present a blocking dialog. As we mention in the “The First Steps to a New Collaborate” blog post, 2.0-Preview-15 marks the end of the “old Collaborate” era. Both packages will be put into sustainment mode with a high bar for fixes. Moving forward, we will start fresh with a creating a new and highly improved Collaborate that is stable, feature rich and will work great with large projects and teams.
