You are welcome to test the new XAF features prior to the 17.2 release: one, two, three, four, five, five, six

XAF - Security permissions processing mechanism optimization and important changes (Coming soon in v17.2)

We have reworked XAF’s permission processing algorithm. It is now faster and ships with improved ways to extend existing permission functionality (thus simplifying code maintenance).

Find more technical details at https://www.devexpress.com/go/XAF_Try_Security_Optimizations_v17.2_September.aspx

If you are an active v17.1 subscriber and want to test this new permission processing engine with your real world applications on a virtual machine (or another suitable test environment) prior to the official release, create a separate private ticket in the Support Center, so that we can verify your account and provide you with the v17.2 preview installation privately.

Please report any issues and suggestions in the Support Center once you've had an opportunity to try this new feature in your upgraded v17.2 project. Thanks for your help in advance!

@Gustavo: The new permission processing engine requires the Allow/Deny permission policy which is not supported in your SecuritySystemRole. Please, upgrade your existing project before testing.

I'd like to test the new permission mechanism. We have XAF large project - WinForm and about 1200 class. Sometimes we fight with speed of app.

Best Regards

@All: If you want to test these improvements, create a separate private ticket in the Support Center (NOT in this blog), so that we can verify your account and provide you with the v17.2 preview installation privately more quickly (we do not monitor these blog comments as often as queues in our official support channel). Thanks for your understanding.
