Various bug fixes to previous releases are included in this latest ActiveControl 9.10 release.
A list of these fixes can be found in the 9.00 Cumulative Patch release notes via the Basis Technologies Support Portal; this list essentially details all of the more important Priority 1 and Priority 2 fixes delivered as fixes to customers since ActiveControl 9.00 – and by extension – also included in ActiveControl 9.10. The change notes for Priority 3 and 4 fixes delivered as part of ActiveControl 9.10 can also be viewed via the Support Portal.
Other Related Information
During the ActiveControl 9.10 development cycle, Basis Technologies engaged an external vendor to perform a penetration test on the new ActiveControl User Interface. Such external penetration testing is undertaken on an annual basis by Basis Technologies to maximise the security of our products. Key recommendations from this latest penetration testing exercise have been factored into ActiveControl 9.10.
Code Vulnerability Analyzer
As part of our internal development processes, Basis Technologies make use of SAP CVA (Code Vulnerability Analyser) on the ABAP code used within ActiveControl. Again, the output recommendations of this CVA analysis has been factored into ActiveControl 9.10 where applicable.
Automated Regression Testing
As part of ActiveControl 9.10 (and previous ActiveControl 9.00 release), the Basis Technologies QA testing team have delivered a project to implement automated regression testing for all key functionalities within ActiveControl. This automated regression testing is a significant step change for Basis Technologies, as it allows us both to reduce the time-window for regression testing at the end of each ActiveControl release (which in turn may help us to potentially deliver more frequent releases of ActiveControl in the future), and also enables us to introduce more extensive regression testing as part of our ongoing Cumulative Patch releases. We expect this automated testing to have positive impacts for new and existing customers in the future, in terms of increased stability of the product.
