When it is time to renew your DPS license, you will be able to update your account through your reseller or online, and it does not matter how you originally purchased the license. If you bought DPS through a reseller, they will receive a notification that you are up for renewal in order to assist you through the process.
Workflow Enhancements for Designers
The engineering team has made several changes to improve workflow efficiency for your designers:
1) They can update multiple articles at once, instead of needing to update a single article at a time
2) If a folio fails to publish due to server error, the publishing process resumes from the point where it stopped publishing.
3) Folio Builder UI enhancements force designers to select the folio orientation before proceeding. This helps prevent publishing issues down the road.
4) Error messages now point designers to Knowledge Base articles to aid in troubleshooting.
Workflow Enhancement for Enterprise Developers
You can now sign an in-house application with an enterprise mobile provision file that contains an explicit (non-wildcard) application ID. This change lets you manage the application independently from other apps in your organization.
