Release Notes

November 2019 – released Sitecore Experience Platform 9.3.0

This is 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 9.3.0 includes:

  • You can now publish a form from the forms list.
  • To add file upload functionality to your forms, you can now use the File upload forms element.
  • We have introduced Sitecore Blob storage. Sitecore stores media items, such as documents or images, in a Sitecore database by default. Sitecore Blob Storage allows you to store these files in Azure Blob Storage, thereby reducing the hosting costs and improving performance.
  • The performance of the reference data service has been improved.
  • ​You can now use the Sitecore bot detection functionality to verify whether visitor is human. This removed the need for a Captcha element.
  • The performance of the session state providers​ has been improved by optimizing the amount of data that is saved to the session state.
  • The performance of the web tracker has been improved by saving expired sessions to xConnect in batches.
  • ​A new interaction aggregation pipeline that can handle batches of interactions has been added.
  • We have implemented some GDPR improvements to support the right to be forgotten.
  • We have introduced expand options for devices.
  • The Collection database schema has been updated to store a shard key value.
  • ​We have refreshed the HTML templates and improved the template manager experience.
  • The Sitecore Install Assistant now supports the optional installation of Solr and Sitecore Experience Accelerator.​​​
