The PrimeKey SignServer team is pleased to announce the release of SignServer 5.2.0.
New and Improved Client Web
Since the SignServer Demo Web is not used exclusively for demonstration purposes but is also widely utilized in production, the former Demo Web has now been renamed Client Web.
We have also improved the new Client Web forms for submitting signature requests and updated the interface.
Administration Interface Changes
The SignServer Administration Web (AdminWeb) interface is now available in SignServer Community edition as well as in SignServer Enterprise.
The Administration Web was first introduced in SignServer Enterprise version 4.1, providing a web interface for SignServer implementing all functionality available in the Java desktop application SignServer Administration GUI.
The former SignServer Administration GUI is as of this release deprecated in Signserver Enterprise and removed in the Community edition.
For more information on SignServer's web interface, see Administration Web.
Algorithm Drop-down Lists
We have added AdminWeb drop-down lists allowing you to choose among available options when specifying the key algorithm and key length/curve when generating keys or certificate signing requests.
You are thus no longer required to type the name of the algorithm or key specification manually but can choose to do so if another option than the ones listed is desired.
