JOHNSON CITY, TN (October 22, 2019) — GraffitiSuite is pleased to announce the availability of GraffitiSuite Release 30!

“Release 30 is a monster,” according to Anthony G.

Release 25 Now Available

Johnson City, TN (February 1, 2018) — GraffitiSuite Solutions is proud to announce Release 25 for GraffitiSuite Desktop and Web Editions!

Included in Release 25 are major bug fixes, compatibility improvements, and new products.

For R25, we focused on improving not only the end-user’s experience, but also the developer’s experience. We’ve done some work converting old Constant values for properties to Enumerations and added properties and methods that were previously missing and frequently requested for a number of the classes.

In the realm of new products, Desktop Edition has three new classes (GraffitiNote, GraffitiSettings and GraffitiTabBar), while two new classes have been added to Web Edition (GraffitiWebLabel and GraffitiQRReader). These new classes are sure to be a welcome addition to any developer’s arsenal.

In terms of bug fixes, for Desktop, GraffitiHTMLEditor has seen a plethora of changes aimed at improving support on MacOS primarily. Other notable changes are to GraffitiGrid, GraffitiCalendar, and GraffitiSlideshow. For Web, there are very few of our products that didn’t receive some work in this release, and improvements were made to our base class to improve support across the board.

Release 23 Now Available

GraffitiSuite Release 23 has finally landed! With 13 new classes and a massive amount of bug fixes and feature requests, we have once again topped our record for largest release! Check out the full ChangeLogs here.

We’ve also revamped out documentation in to a Wiki format, where our customers can now pitch in to help clarify class usage, or fix inconsistencies! You can try out the wiki here.

What’s Next…

(Release 21 is a Web Edition only release, as there were no reported bugs or requested features for Desktop Edition since Release 20.)

Is that really what you want to know? Well, for release 21 we will not only be pushing out our stability rewrite…but…three all-new classes that are going to push your Web Apps even further! Oh, and we’ve deprecated the old DatePicker in favor of a new implementation that’s completely awesome. That brings this release to nine additions, and one fix.

The new classes are lacking some features that many of our other classes are missing, and we’ll be adding that as requested. As an example, WebStyle support. Many people seem to be perfectly happy using the styles we provide, so adding WebStyle support isn’t usually a priority (especially when you have full access to the CSS in the class’s source code); we take care of that when you need it. Our turn-around is generally quick on things like that, but some classes will require a considerable amount of work for WebStyle support. In some cases we have to completely refactor a component to get that support in.

Release 21 is very near now. We’re looking at a few other prototypes to see if they’re ready for this release, then we’ll do final testing and push it out.

Thanks for choosing GraffitiSuite!

Web Rewrite in the Works

After many fixes aimed at increasing the stability of our Web Edition controls over the past year, and the resulting recurring issues, we are going to be making major changes to the Web Edition classes. At a future date, we will be releasing a near rewrite of all Web Edition classes using the latest WebSDK. This version should be fully backwards compatible with your projects (not necessarily with previous versions of Xojo).

As of now, only one customer has continued to experience issues with the current release, and we will release a quick patch before the next release if it becomes necessary. If you do experience continuing problems with the latest release, please report them in the bug tracker so that we may ensure that they are addressed.

Thank you for choosing GraffitiSuite.

GraffitiWebSyntaxEditor Fix Coming

We’ve identified a syntax issue in GraffitiWebSyntaxEditor that got by in the last release. We hope to have this fix in by tomorrow evening.

UPDATE: GraffitiSuite Release 19.1 is now available.

Release 19 Now Available

Release 19 has been pushed out with the following changes:

CHANGE WEB All GraffitiWeb classes now instantiate jQuery in noConflict mode.
CHANGE WEB GraffitiWebAlert now queues calls until fully loaded.
CHANGE WEB GraffitiWebSyntaxEditor now holds all loading until RequireJS finishes it’s work.
CHANGE WEB GraffitiWebDatePicker now supports variable date formatting.
CHANGE WEB GraffitiWebDatePicker now uses a custom UI and different style dropdown.
FIX WEB GraffitiWebEmailValidator demo now properly shows suggestions.
FIX WEB GraffitiWebTabPanel now queues calls until fully loaded.
FIX WEB GraffitiWebQR now queues call until fully loaded.
FIX WEB GraffitiWebDatePicker now properly resizes based on the number of calendars displayed.

Release 19 coming soon.

We have identified an issue with our new conflict resolution code in the classes. We’ve already begun fixing the issue, and hope to have this release out fairly soon. We’re sorry for any inconvenience this may cause. We should note, however, that many of you may never see an issue with Release 18, as it appears to be a small subset of users who experience this.
