Update - Improved platform-wide performance
Here at Betty Blocks HQ, we feel the need - the need for speed. The latest update to the Betty Blocks platform brings some of that much needed speed in threefold with super fast performance improvements:
1) We managed to boost the performance of executing actions in general. Running an action that saves a record or calculates different expression variables for instance is now noticeably faster. In some cases the speed improvement is even up to 5 times faster!
2) Calculating expression variables throughout the whole platform is now also a lot faster, because we have made the process more efficient.
3) Rendering or processing of pages goes a lot faster now because loading the necessary page variables has become more efficient - in some cases up to 3 times faster.
Update - Autosize and formatting fixes
You told us what was bugging you, and we got to work. With the latest update to the Betty Blocks platform we fixed several bug reports, for example:
Incorrect autosizing in FireFox browsers. In some FireFox browser cases a back-office form was autosizing incorrectly, but the autosizing feature will now work seamlessly for all FireFox users.
Formatting errors in custom UI pages. Sometimes, you encountered incorrect formatting results on your rendered UI pages with date, date time, time or price properties. We have fixed that error so your custom UI pages will always feature correct formatting.
Update - Creating new apps 20 times faster
Survival tip from Betty Blocks: You don’t have to run faster than the bear. You only have to run faster than the other guy running from the bear.
Nevertheless, speed is important. Until now, creating a new application was simply taking too long. Nobody has time to wait when being chased by a hungry bear.
Creating new applications will now be 20 times faster
That’s why we’ve been working hard to make some major speed improvements. When starting with an empty application, you will now be able to create a new application 20 times faster than before. Go give it a try, and check out the new progress status bar while you’re at it!
And remember, don’t feed the bears.
