Traction TeamPage 6.0 Feature Highlights
Updated Styles for the Proteus Skin - Cleaner, crisper, less cluttered appearance. Icon and font rendering updates improve performance as well as style.
New Forms - TeamPage's Web based forms for creating and editing articles, tasks, and other TeamPage objects use a new forms framework. The new forms look cleaner, crisper and simpler. Developers can make their own forms that use standard features like naming, moderation, parent/child relationships, related project, related milestone and more. Forms support saving and loading template articles, making it to define and use templates for common tasks, meeting agendas, and other activities.
Updated and Improved Rich Text Editing - TeamPage uses the TinyMCE open source rich text editor, donating contributions back to the main project. TeamPage 6.0 incorporated the latest TinyMCE fixes and improvements, making rich text editing more reliable, easier to use, and visually attractive.
Jetty Web Server - TeamPage now includes the Jetty web server, which offers many advantages, including: server-tracked sessions, with the associated ability for administrators to expire any or all active sessions; tunable throttling to combat DDoS attacks; better resource management for handling incoming connection requests; and forward-looking compatibility with protocols such as SPDY and WebSocket to make it easier to keep TeamPage up to date with future innovations that affect the world of web based applications.
Smaller Memory Footprint - The amount of memory that TeamPage uses to provide access to the settings and properties associated with users, spaces, the journal, and the server has been greatly reduced without sacrificing performance. This can be a big benefit for TeamPage deployments of all sizes.
Updated Setup Interface - The Personal, Space and Server Setup pages have been redesigned and reorganized to make it easy to configure and maintain TeamPage defaults and options. The TeamPage unified search box at the top of every Setup page makes it simple to jump quickly to the right page by typing part of the name of a page or option and choosing from a list relevant Setup Pages that use that term.
Security Improvements - TeamPage 6.0 has been updated to use the latest industry standard procedures and cryptographic algorithms for password security, including the PBKDF2 standard (i.e., IETF RFC 2898). TeamPage now also keeps track of information about recent authentication attempts for each user account. Administrators can access this information for any user at any time, and each user can always access this information for their own account. Security conscious administrators have the option to require that each user review a summary of the previous successful and failed attempts to authenticate with their user name.
Improved PDF export - A new HTML to PDF export framework incorporates many improvements and fixes, particularly for robust cleanup and handling of messy or invalid HTML copied from external sources.
Improved invitations - Inviting someone to TeamPage automatically subscribes them to receive notifications for the spaces to which they have been invited.
IE7 Compatibility Mode - The Proteus skin now supports Microsoft IE 8 and newer browsers running with IE7 Compatibility Mode enabled.
Updated internationalization - Particularly for the Japanese locale.

Traction Software updates TeamPage for all Cloud hosted customers, and provides update installers for customers who choose to deploy TeamPage on their own systems. Updates with major improvements are typically released on a semi-annual to quarterly basis, with minor improvements and bug fixes on a quarterly to monthly basis depending on the urgency of any associated bug fix.
Traction® TeamPage 5.2 introduced capabilities to make it simple to track actions, show activity, watch status, and follow discussions embedded in the flow of collaborative work. TeamPage 5.2's new activity dashboards show actions, status and work in context using a format that's easy to read and reduces information overload. Activity dashboards allow people dive into and watch activity associated with projects or milestones they want to focus on, while also seeing, searching, exploring and connecting with others across a broad range of actions organized by business context as well as person. TeamPage 5.2 also introduced drag-and-drop file upload and image insertion for Web browsers supporting the new HTML 5 standard.
