2015 Release Notes release-notes

Release notes and updates for 2015.

Version 1.5.3 section-7c09ba2832bd4644a1ccc3aa83abe66a

November, 2015

The Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) prohibits online collection of personal information from children under 13 years old without verifiable parental consent. Customers concerned about COPPA can add an optional variable to their Experience Cloud ID service code that prevents it from setting cookies in the third-party domain of a browser. See COPPA Support in the Experience Cloud Identity Service. For version 1.5.3 or greater.

Version 1.5.2 section-e3c73e47539942a89b02d33061128148

September, 2015

  • Fixed a bug in the Safari browser that prevented synchronization services from functioning when users blocked third-party cookies. (AAM-20764)
  • Calls to the ID service now include the version ID in the d_visid_ver= parameter. The returned ID helps internal teams with troubleshooting and support issues. (AAM-20824)

Version 1.5.1 section-f4309d7917964a748fee4bdb45bffa44

August, 2015

  • Fixed a bug to prevent the ID service from requesting an iframe if there’s no data to synchronize or fire. (AAM-20164)

  • Fixed a bug that prevented the ID service from properly setting a multi-part, top-level domain cookie. For example, if you have a domain like my_company.co.uk, under some circumstances, the ID service would set a cookie in co.uk only. (AN-104683)

    This only affected a few clients that met all of the following criteria:

    • Using the ID service.

    • Enabled a grace periodor are using first-party cookies and users block third-party cookies.

    • Have pages with multi-part, top-level domains.

Version 1.3.5 section-eed4567f058f446d9a819e4682621aed

February, 2015

Fixed the handling of timeout on requests for AAM Blob and Location Hint. Now, on a timeout, the system will correctly leave those fields blank for the current page and make all callbacks. The timeout is treated as an error condition, so it will try again on the next page. (AN-94473, AN-94474)
