Live never stops at Muhimbi. It has only been 7 days since we announced a new version of the Workflow Power Pack and here we are again with the brand new ‘2.0’ version of our URL Shortener for SharePoint. This version adds support for generating short URLs from workflows, manually specifying short URL names, new languages as well as some other new features and fixes. For full details see the table below.
For those not familiar with the product, the Muhimbi URL Shortener for SharePoint, aka MuSH, can be used to shorten URLs for typical web applications and SharePoint in particular. It integrates tightly with both WSS and MOSS and allows short URLs to be created directly from a list item’s context menu, workflows and web services. For details see the original announcement.
The main changes and improvements are as follows:
|562||New: Allow users to specify their own Short URL.|
|556||New: Allow users to specify if they want the short URL to point to the Document rather than the Display Form.|
|760||New: Allow the URL Shortener to be called from any page using SharePoint’s Personal Action’s menu.|
|561||New: Allow the URL Shortener to be invoked from a SharePoint Designer Workflow.|
|735||Fixed: Make sure that the same Short URL is returned if a long URL has been shortened before.|
|655||New: Add Support for Simplified Chinese in the user interface.|
