Social Proof Messaging
A new template allows you to easily display social proof messages on a product list page. You can specify the top or bottom of the image in the product list. As with all templates you can modify the code for you variation to change the display of the message beyond what the template enables.
There is now a way to specify a facet.limit with the facetsOnly response style. Previously facetsOnly defaulted to a value of 100 and could not be changed. With facets.limit, customers can limit the response for facets.
Special symbols like the plus sign "+" can now be indexed as "text" words to be easily indexed and queried. For English only, the following symbols have been tested:
"®" => "registered"
"©" => "copyright"
"™" => "trademark”
"\+" => "plus”
A new file "charmapper.txt" is where special symbols and their associated "text" are managed. Currently, the file is blank for all languages except for English. For all other languages we can add symbols and their associated "text". The file is uploaded to the language service following the same process as for stopwords.txt and protected words.

The Content List report provides a way to see how content has performed for each metric over a period of time. You can see all of your content or select one or more placements where content is played.
