Improved Artifact Tree View

The Artifact Tree view has been significantly improved such that when opening a node on a repository, a specific (configurable) number of artifacts will be displayed instead of the entire contents of the repository. This significantly reduces loading time for repositories containing a large number of artifacts. The default display number is 500, but this number can be changed in the Aritfactory UI (click here for instructions). If there are more artifacts to display beyond the current list, a Load more option appears at the end of the list and when clicked displays more items.General Settings

The enhanced Artifact Tree View is available both in a Tree Browser and a Native Browser.

Improved Tracking of Distribution Task Progress

JFrog Distribution now uses an improved method for tracking distribution tasks, which enables more accurate updates about the progress of each task.
