Notes on Specific Release Components

Custom Transforms and Renditions
Alfresco Content Services (ACS) provides a number of content transforms, but also allows custom transforms to be added.
It is now possible to create custom transforms that run in separate processes known as Transform Engines. The same engines may be used in Community and Enterprise Editions. They may be directly connected to the ACS repository as Local Transforms. It should be noted that in the Enterprise edition the default option is to use them as part of the Alfresco Transform Service which provides more balanced throughput and scalability improvements.
The source code for the packaging project that is used to create and run docker images and build the distribution zip can be foundhere.
We also addresseda number of bugs since the release of Alfresco Community Edition 201901, more details in the Issues Addressed section below.
