Enablement Service Pack 2 for UPK 11.1 is Now Available

Enablement Service Pack 2 for Oracle User Productivity Kit 11.1 is now available on Oracle Software Delivery Cloud.

In this ESP you'll find support for critical new platforms: Windows 8, Windows 2012 (server), Internet Explorer 10, Firefox 17 ESR, iOS 6, Office 2013, and Oracle Application Testing Suite 12.2. Not to mention all the new versions of Target Applications that have been added. Have a look at the updated Technical Specifications, Professional Technical Specifications, and Target Applications Technical Specifications for a full list of platform and target application updates.

This ESP also offers an optional updated appearance for your Player bubbles in See It! and Try It! modes and a new mouse click graphic in See It! mode. You can see an example image below and test drive the updated play mode appearance by launching any topic in the UPK Master Documentation Library. For example, try the Start the Developer topic. Steps detailing how to configure these updated elements in your Player Publishing Project or published Player files can be found in the Change Play Mode Appearance section of the UPK Master Documentation Library. (Note: this section is named Customize Windowed See It! Mode in the delivered Content Development.pdf.)

Player New Bubble and Mouse Click Style

The UPK Player on an iPad was introduced in UPK 11.1 ESP1 and has been improved with the release of UPK 11.1 ESP 2. Sound in UPK content is now available when the UPK Player is launched on an iPad, providing a richer experience to your iPad users. In addition, Windowed See It! mode is now supported on iPads, giving you another way to deliver content to your mobile workforce. Speaking of which, the Windowed See It! mode features a completely redesigned navigation bar. The navigation bar includes the elapsed play time, anticipated topic duration, and a slider bar representing the progress through the topic. The slider bar also provides quick navigation through the topic. Once you See It! in action, I'm sure you'll agree it's a huge improvement.

Windowed See It! New Style
