New Features and Enhancements
Timeout Warning Popup and Countdown Clock
Thanks to the Timeout Warning Popup, the user will get notified a few minutes before the back end system timeout and will have the option to keep his session alive. This can be quite useful for a user who is working on the same page for a long time (e.g. entering text). An optional count down clock can also be displayed in the Application Frame header.
