The previous version of HACP EE (1.9) supported only underline cursor, but from version 1.10 onwards, HACP EE supports Block, Underline, Crosshair and Blinking cursors.
Confirm on Exit:
Control Status bar from HOD session Properties:
Unlike previous versions of HACP EE, where the Status Bar was editable for all Users by default, from version 1.10 onwards, the Administrator can control the Status Bar for clients by setting a global value for the Control Status Bar. The Admin can use isStatusBarEditableByAdmin and enableStatusBarForAll parameters in the web.properties file to set the global value. Valid values for these parameters are True/False.

An Embedded server is provided as part of the deployable application, which provides all functionalities of HACP EE including a standalone server. The advantage is that it is not necessary to pre-install a web server in the deployment environment.
Auto-Update of JS and CSS Files:
With the Auto-Update feature added in HACP EE 1.10, Users need not manually change the context root or clear the browser history after every build deployment, in order to run the application. When a new build is deployed, the application automatically updates the client-side java script files and CSS files.
Reduced Download content size:
The JSON data in HACP EE client has all the field attributes, because of which the download content size is huge. HACP EE version 1.10 allows Users to reduce the download size & screen traversal time, thereby also resulting in improved performance, by removing the false attributes from JSON array.
To enhance the User experience, several UI changes have been included in HACP Extended Edition (HACP EE) v1.10 that makes it more responsive and user-friendly. Below are some of the UX updates:
From version 1.10 onwards, Users without credentials and configured page, can connect to sessions and use the product as a trial version, by using the Quick-Connect feature in HACP EE.
