Hudu 2.0.7: Our Biggest Release Ever

Hudu 2.0.7 is finally rolling off the shelves. We are super excited to share it. It is by far our biggest release yet, with changes encompassing and changing multiple aspects of the Hudu architecture.

Enhancements to Processes

We heard you. While our Processes feature was extremely powerful, it was just too complicated. With 2.0.7, we have massively simplified and improved the architecture. Now, each company has Process Templates to utilize, and assets have Processes associated with them that are based on those Templates.

New Text Editor

For a documentation product, our old text editor was just not up to our quality standards. So, we improved it. Now, you can add tables, images, code blocks, and more. We also added a Full Screen option so you can focus on your writing.

SAML Login

With Hudu 2.0.7, you can now enable Single Sign On through SAML. We have created help desk articles for setting up common providers with Hudu. You can enable SAML login in the Admin area.

Search

Our old search was OK. In terms of search, it got the job done. However, at Hudu, we don’t just stop with OK. The new Hudu search has a brand new interface, faster results, and the ability to search all fields within your documentation. Finding documentation has never been easier!

Improvements to Relating

Now, Hudu supports three types of relating fields with the ability to add multiple relations in forms via the Link To Multiple Assets Field. We also renovated the way Related Items work. They are now displayed right above your documentation for easier viewing and navigation.
