Technical release note

Rendition - TaskConversion/document-converter

The following property removed rendition.soffice.use.user.install.path (added in version 4.8.7).

The reason is to prevent user/integrator to disable it, as the main goal of this property is to assign each LibreOffice instance to its own environment in order to have multiple conversions in parallel.

IBM FileNet connector

Unecessary libraries have been removed in the arondor-arender-hmi-filenet-{VERSION}.ear/war

The reason a security measure.
