The console has been overhauled:
An auto aging stub feature has been added:
All stub activity can now be acted upon based on criteria, and best of all for my practical purposes, archive auto creations! Auto archive creations based on thresholds are essential for keeping maintenance windows small, especially when journaling. It allows admins to essentially have 'save points' where data ceases to change, and thus, remains more stable in the isolated environment. Maintenance need only be run against the deltas!
Another benefit to upgrading is the new web-based search features. As the product continues to evolve toward a hybrid product, more options open up to users as to if they want full reliance on stubs, searching, or both.
The listed upgrades combined with other admin and user bound benefits make this a great release, and a product worth watching when comparing to other technologies.
