Federated Experience Manager for Sitecore 7.x Update Released

Federated Experience Manager (FXM) allows you to add personalization and tracking to non-Sitecore websites and applications. It is available as a module for Sitecore 7.x. It is included in the Sitecore Experience Platform starting with Sitecore 8.

In this post I am happy to announce an update to FXM for Sitecore 7.x.

This release was even picked up by Wikipedia!

Due to breaking API changes in the various Sitecore 7 versions that are supported, this update is being released as 3 separate versions. These versions contain the same changes. The only difference is the version of Sitecore 7 that is targeted:

  • If you're using Sitecore 8 this update doesn't apply to you
  • If you're using Sitecore 7.5 you should use FXM 1.4
  • If you're using Sitecore 7.2 you should use FXM 1.3
  • If you're using Sitecore 7.1 you should use FXM 1.2
  • If you're using Sitecore 7.0 you must upgrade to Sitecore 7.1 in order to use FXM

There are no new features included in this release, but there are a number of improvements and bug fixes:

  • Improved support for IE 8 and 9 (though IE 8 support is still limited)
  • Improved compatibility with Sitecore robot detection
  • External language is properly resolved when using rendering data sources
  • Default document behavior fixed

For more details see the release notes for the appropriate FXM version.
