PSPDFKit for Web 2021.1 is here with the all-new Collaboration Permissions feature for Server-backed setups. It also includes improved responsiveness of document operations on Standalone.
The new Collaboration Permissions feature provides fine-grained control over permissions in a Server-backed setup. With Collaboration Permissions, you can:
Restrict a user from deleting an annotation but allow them to edit it and vice versa
Hide annotations, comments, and form fields from specific users
Define who is allowed to fill out form fields
Define who is allowed to reply to a particular comment thread
Create private notes not visible to anyone else
What makes Collaboration Permissions even better is that these permissions are defined in the JSON Web Token (JWT) and enforced on the server side. This provides a stronger security model than what can be implemented with client-side callbacks.
This release also includes numerous bug fixes and minor improvements. For a complete list of changes, see the PSPDFKit for Web 2021.1 and PSPDFKit Server 2021.1 changelogs, as well as the migration guides for PSPDFKit for Web 2021.1 and PSPDFKit Server 2021.1.
