Conversation features have been improved for accessibility:
Accessibility-compliant names have been added for all menu elements.
A tab navigation has been added to the menu component.
When a dialog is closed, the focus returns to the element that was in focus before the dialog was opened.
The play button in video elements has been updated to receive keyboard focus.
Blocking users will no longer automatically block all user comments that have been approved.
Unless an avatar has been selected by a user or provided through a publisher implementation, the avatar will default to the initials of the user.
For a single-page application implementation, a publisher can set dark mode by article using the data-theme attribute in the Conversation embed code.
To maintain a simple user interface, large numbers use the letter K to denote 1000, for example 12345 becomes 12.3K.
A comment that exceeds 300 characters is truncated by default and a Read More link can be clicked to view the entire comment. This default is customizable.
The Load more updates button has been replaced with an infinite scroll for Live Blog.
The Lives In field in a user's profile can be disabled.
The design of the Conversation Read Article button has been updated to align with branding.
