Nexus Portal 4.0 has been available to new users for a couple of months and was recently made available to existing users to upgrade their Nexus sites. Nexus 4.0 does require a new license key which is explained in step 3 of the upgrade instructions. Here is the list of the key new features:
LDAP Support: End users can now use the same profile to log in to Nexus as they do to log in to other LDAP supported resources. Site administrators of organizations who use LDAP no longer need to manage separate LDAP and Nexus profiles.
Improved Cross Browser Support: The end user interface of Nexus has been supported in Internet Explorer, Firefox and Chrome for a while. In Nexus 4.0 the site administration interface is also supported.
Password Expiry Warning and Updating: Users now have the ability to change their IBM i user profile passwords from the Nexus login screen. Nexus administrators can control the number of days in advance to start displaying the password expiration warning message.
Improved Password Encryption: Password security is improved with better encryption handling. You can now also set the encryption seed for generating Nexus passwords.
Improved Installation Process: You can now specify a new library name during the installation which makes it easier to have multiple Nexus installations.
As part of our ongoing development strategy and planning efforts here at BCD we are scheduling future internal IBM i system upgrades. This will affect the minimum OS/400 release level supported by BCD products. Our product line currently requires a minimum OS/400 release level of V5R3. As of January 1, 2012 V5R4 will be the minimum OS/400 release level supported by most BCD products and updates released after that date.
As our products continue to evolve and new products are introduced it is generally our intention to keep in step with IBM OS/400 release levels, while also giving our clients enough time to plan for this change. This allows us to develop using current technology and to make this technology available to you in our product family.
