Extensions 2022.2 Release Notes

New Features

Customized File Menus
Customized client-specific entries in the “File” menu can be created. By referencing filemenu.xml files in the root extension.xml file, you can load client-specific plugin features.

Unloading of Extensions
Extensions are now unloaded without the need to restart. The customized ribbons, drop-down menus, and toolbars are no longer visible.
Initialization of glocal Tcl scripts
In 2022.1, the initialization of client-specific Tcl scripts was introduced. In 2022.2 this is enhanced with the initialization of global Tcl scripts in the global section of the extension.xml file, which allows you to load procedures available for all clients/profiles.
