When you search through the documentation (the little magnifying glass), the search is now stored in the browser history. This way, you can come back to the search list after you have navigated to the results. Also, you can now bookmark and share your search. Just copy the .../search?q=... URL from your browser address bar.
By default, the generic handlers for READ requests automatically truncate result sets to a size of 1,000 records max (implicit pagination). The default page size can be controlled by means of the CDS annotation @cds.query.limit.default per service or application configuration property cds.query.limit.default. The maximum value can be controlled by means of the CDS annotation @cds.query.limit.max per service or the global application configuration property cds.query.limit.max.
In addition, the result is implicitly sorted. By default the entity's primary key is used as sort criterion. This feature can be turned off by means of the application configuration property cds.query.implicitSorting.enabled: false.
The Java runtime now supports asynchronous tenant subscription requests on the SAP Cloud Platform. This is useful if tenant onboarding takes much time and would hit the timeout of a synchronous tenant subscription.
Projects created with the CAP Java archetype now use the CDS Maven Plugin during build. This plugin replaces a bunch of 3rd party plugins and boiler plate pom.xml code, making newly created projects much cleaner.
