SigningHub v6.4 has been released with the following features and enhancements:

Local signing using secure smartcards / USB tokens can now be performed without the need to download Java applets, which are being blocked by most modern browsers. This new approach to local signing uses Ascertia’s latest Go>Sign Desktop middleware product and works with any HTML5 browser. Further details are here: Local signing with smartcards just got a little easier!
SigningHub can now provision Active Directory users automatically so that users can access SigningHub using their domain credentials.
Active Directory can now be used as a live source of contact information when preparing document workflows. Any new contacts added in Active Directory are automatically added in SigningHub.
SigningHub support for authenticating users via external Identity Providers (IDP) based on SAMLv2 protocol has been extended to include Verisec Freja Mobile, Active Directory Federation Service (ADFS) and EU Stork based IDPs.
Single Sign On (SSO) support now allows users logged on using Active Directory, ADFS, Office365 and Salesforce to seamlessly login to SigningHub (either directly or via the SigningHub SharePoint/ Salesforce / Integration Demo apps) without providing their login credentials again.
Document workflow has been enhanced to:
(a) allow the document owner to add/ update/ delete recipients even after sharing the document, and(b) enable the document owner to authorise recipients to also make such changes, including the ability to replace themselves with someone else, as part of delegating or escalating the approval process.
A new option is added for busy business executives to receive a daily summary email listing all pending documents instead of receiving separate email notifications for each document.
During document preparation, it is now possible to add multiple digital signature or e-signature fields per signer to be signed in the same session.
A new option is provided within Service Plans to restrict the type of signatures to be created, for example only allowing digital signatures, or e-signatures or both types.
Initials, In-person signatures and Form Fields can now be added independently from digital/ e-signature fields.
Templates now allow one or more form fields to be added to the last page of a document rather than specifying a number. When using such a template the identified fields are automatically created last page irrespective of how many pages are in the target document.
A new bulk signing option is provided to allow a preview of one or more documents before bulk signing starts. This allows users to quickly check one or more documents before bulk signing.
Bulk document operations like archive, delete, share, comments etc. can now be performed from the Home page – these options appear when a user selects one or more documents.
Bulk user invitations for Enterprise users supports the import of Outlook or Thunderbird CSV files.
The document viewer now supports font type and size selection when filling SigningHub form fields.
An Enterprise admin can now:
(a) mark a specific role as the default, which is useful when autoprovisioning users, and(b) enable/ disable/ delete users as required.
SigningHub email messages can now be branded with the Enterprise logo, the document links are replaced with more user-friendly buttons.
Various performance, security and GUI improvements have been made, especially the home page loading performance and when deleting multiple documents.
