Release Notes

Feb 2021 – released Sitecore Experience Platform 10.1.0

This a feature release. Sitecore recommends that you upgrade to this release if it includes features that meet the specific needs of your organization. This release contains significant new feature functionality, and we encourage you to evaluate it.

Highlights

Sitecore Experience Platform 10.1.0 includes:

  • ​You can now use the content hierarchy to assign a behavior profile to multiple items.
  • ​​You can now use content tags to assign a behavior profile to multiple items.​
  • The Collection database now supports scalable reads.
  • You can now use the new ​Data Purge CLI tool to remove unwanted contact data from the Experience Database​.
  • Sitecore Fast Query has been deprecated.
  • Email Experience Manager - ​​​​​Mutli-Language Management - Marketers can now create HTML emails in any language, regardless of the context language. You can also activate Email campaigns without the need for an English language variant regardless of the language being used.
  • Email Experience Manager - ​We have introduced a configurable retry mechanism that allows users to configure how many times they would like the system to retry if an error or failure occurs when you send out a campaign.
  • Email Experience Manager - ​You can now use the following new email templates:​
    • Two Column
    • 2 Column 1 CTA
    • 3 Column Long
    • 3 Column Short
  • The upgrade process has been simplified and streamlined. You can upgrade from Sitecore XP 8.1.0 or later directly to Sitecore XP 10.1.0 in one straightforward procedure.
    The Upgrade Guide has been updated and simplified to reflect these changes.
  • Experience Analytics - ​The Reporting and CM server roles have been combined to run on the same server role, thereby reducing hosting costs for containers, PaaS and On-Prem solutions.
  • SXA and Horizon​
    You can now create:
    • Extensions in the Selection Details area.
    • Extensions that edit the properties of a selected rendering.
    • Extensions that can initialize the parameters of a rendering or perform additional actions when a rendering is added to a page
  • ​The majority of the Microsoft/System libraries that we use in Sitecore XP have been updated.​
  • The IAsyncEnumerable<T> and IAsyncEnumerator<T> interfaces as well as the AsyncEnumerator class from the System.InteractiveAsync assembly have been replaced with their respective counterparts from the Microsoft.Bcl.AsyncInterfaces library. We have therefore updated the signature of every method that receives or returns an object of these types and every class that implements these interfaces.
    To minimize the amount of changes required in the customer’s code, we have implemented a set of extensions in the Sitecore.Async.Extensions.Legacy assembly. This is a temporary assembly and will be removed in the next version of Sitecore.
  • ​The new Async Redis Session State Provider and the updated Stack Exchange Redis Driver give us a faster and more stable tracker.
  • Sitecore.UpdateApp 1.1.0 - This is the ​initial release​​​​ ​of the Sitecore.UpdateApp tool.

Breaking changes

Context Description Customer ticket ID (or other) TFS no.
Marketing Foundation In the Sitecore.Processing.Tasks.Abstractions assembly, the Sitecore.Processing.Tasks.Abstractions.ITaskDataProvider interface has been extended with the new Task<IProcessingTaskData> RefreshTaskStatus(Guid) method. 438624
Marketing Foundation In the Sitecore.Processing.Tasks.Abstractions assembly, the Sitecore.Processing.Tasks.Abstractions.ITaskDataProvider interface has been extended with the new Task< 442392
Marketing Foundation ​XConnect contact data extraction has been extended to return contacts that do not interact with the brand for a specific amount of time. XConnect CollectionRoutes has been updated to accept the nullable cutoffDate parameter in the GetCreateContactCursorUri. This parameter accepts the nullable date-time value for contact data extraction filtering. 412111
Marketing Foundation ​​​​In xConnect, we have introduced the Scalable Reads feature to support read operations from secondary instances of the xDB collection database to unload the primary database. The ReadPreference parameter can be specified for most of the read operations including data extraction. The IRepository and IDataProvider interfaces have been extended with create cursor and split cursor methods that accept the new InteractionCursorOptions, ContactCursorOptions, InteractionCursorSplitOptions, and ContactCursorSplitOptions operations with the ReadPreference parameter. 405346
Miscellaneous ​​​​​Items are now stored as resource data and are no longer stored in the database. 441838
Miscellaneous The IAsyncEnumerable<T> and IAsyncEnumerator<T> interfaces as well as the AsyncEnumerator class from the System.InteractiveAsync assembly have been replaced with their respective counterparts from the Microsoft.Bcl.AsyncInterfaces library. We have therefore updated the signature of every method that receives or returns an object of these types and every class that implements these interfaces.
To minimize the amount of changes required in the customer’s code, we have implemented a set of extensions in the Sitecore.Async.Extensions.Legacy assembly. This is a temporary assembly and will be removed in the next version of Sitecore.
