News in SAPUI5 flexibility - adaptation projects

Adaptation projects in SAP Business Application Studio extend SAP's standard applications and now also extend already-deployed projects created by SAP (e.g. industry solutions) or SAP partners. This enables customers to adapt even more solutions to meet their needs. Another new capability is that developers can preview an adaptation project in a separate browser tab. This enables a standalone preview for e.g. automated/manual testing.
