New Features and Enhancements
New visual design Blue Crystal for the Web Client User Interface
SAP Blue Crystal is the new visual design theme, introduced by SAP Fiori, which succeeds the older Corbu design. It is based on the same interaction design and UI controls as Corbu, but uses different colors. This new visual design offers a modern and fresh look.
SAP Blue Crystal can also be used to integrate existing user interfaces into SAP Fiori scenarios. It thus aims to reduce visual disruption between the different technologies. it harmonizes the coloring and design of different controls, but does not resemble Fiori’s user interaction, navigation and the like.
See blog post New WEBCUIF Standard Theme: Blue Crystal.

Direct URL for Saved Search
A new button “Open Saved Search with a persistent URL” has been added to the Central Search Launcher. When the user clicks on this button, the selected Saved Search will be launched in a new window (or tab depending on the user’s browser settings) with a stable URL.

Recent Items filtered on object type
This feature allows users to quickly filter out their recent activity without having to go through the whole list. Also, the limits on how many recent items that are stored has increased, allowing each object type to have its own limit.
For example, before this feature, if the total Recent Items limit was 5 items, the 6th item is deleted. Now, there will be 5 of each type that is stored in the backend. This way, when the filter is applied, the last 5 of that object type are displayed.
