The first release in the 4.x series includes enhancements to the platform aimed at increasing usability, efficiency, and all around improved user experience. A major enhancement in 4.0 is the single page app layout that allows for a consistent menu on all pages. The seamless experience provides is an improved experience from past versions that required users to migrate between sections to complete tasks. This new improvement will be especially welcomed by content editors.
Users will notice new notifications at the top of the page with the single page app layout. These are comparable to the notifications on smartphones and inform users when tasks are completed. A new, centralized "Actions Button" has also been added to provide users quick access to their most recent content and widgets, pages, files, and personas.
