Telligent Community 7.5 helps you create a more responsive, engaged community with new social sign-in options, added notification types and distribution methods, and an improved private messaging experience in addition to powerful development APIs and development support for third-party applications.
For users, there are new social sign-in options to simplify login with social features; new notification types and distribution methods that immediately let you know about mentions, ratings/likes, friendships, and comments; and a more intuitive private messaging experience that helps you keep up with your conversations as well as enhance your relationships.
For developers, the bookmark service has recreated as a plugin that both lets you add Telligent bookmarks to your third-party application or bookmark external URLs. The Socket Framework adds real-time Telligent feature functionality for chat and notifications to your third-party application. New APIs have also been added.
