    • DARA Updates - The manual/bulk dismissal of recommendations will be improved; you will be able to configure which roles are relevant for which DARA recommendations; a visual indication on DARA actions will display the number of open recommendations in the header.

    Resource Management

    • New Parameter for MD Import - The MD import will include a new parameter that controls whether local extensions will be added to records.
    • Management of Community Zone Sets - In continuation to recent developments relating to the management of Community Zone sets, the January release will include the possibility to export a Community Zone set. In addition, API's will support working with Community Zone sets.
