This release features the following enhancements:

  • Back-off functionality to improve the user experience when they are performing activities on their machines.
  • Various performance enhancements on both the client and server.
  • Improved keyword quality and generation.
  • An inner circle web parts that highlights people closest to you and who are most likely to assist with your query. 

We hope you are as excited and enthusiastic about KN as we are.  Enjoy!
