BroadleafCommerce 5.1.8-GA

Released on November 29, 2017

This is the 8th patch release for Broadleaf Framework 5.1.x.

Noteworthy Changes

"Incognito" mode for the Jobs/Events module

This mode is controlled via standard Spring properties, or system properties, and allows a developer workstation to launch against a shared development database in a more isolated way, but without forcing the developer to maintain a local Jobs/Events database. This mode also addresses some of the resiliency and cache invalidation issues noted previously.
