You can logon to the HTML5 version of Incident page using the link https://<SupervisorIP>/phoenix/html.

Malware URL threat feed
Previous releases allowed users to import Malware domain, IP, file hashes and Anonymity Networks as external threat intelligence feed. This release extends this functionality to Malware URLs.
For details, see here.
Syslog over TLS
This release enables FortiSIEM to receive encrypted Syslog over TLS.

Device Audit framework
FortiSIEM discovers devices in depth, collects various performance/availability metrics, parses logs, traps and triggers rules. This release provides users a framework to run an audit on devices based on the collected information. Audit criteria can be based on
Installed software version
A set of reports representing audit violations
A set of rules triggering incidents representing audit violations
User can define audit criteria and run a check against devices – either on-demand or periodically on a schedule. The results can be displayed on GUI, exported as PDF from GUI or emailed with PDF attachments.
For details, see here.
