In The Works: Biggest Update Ever

It has taken a great deal of work, but GraffitiSuite release 18 is nearly ready, and it’s a beast! It will contain four or more new products, vastly improved Retina support on the desktop side, rock-solid jQuery implementation on the web side, a completely reworked GraffitiWebColorPicker, and a great deal of fixes and changes.

We may decide to run a sale for this release. If so, those details will be forthcoming.

Release 17: Two New Classes, Lots of Bug Fixes

We’ve now pushed out GraffitiSuite Release 17, which focuses on increasing stability and offerings for our Web Edition lineup. We’ve fixed all of the bugs that were reported before our cutoff (a little over a week ago), and this promises to be the best GraffitiSuite Web Edition release yet.

For a full list of changes in this release, check out the ChangeLog.

Upcoming Additions

Great news! In the next month or two, we have three new classes that are going to make their way in to GraffitiSuite! Here’s a few teaser images:

Release 16: Desktop/Web Fixes & New Classes

This release has been a long time in the making. We’ve worked out the major issues with our initial release of GraffitiSuite Web Edition, and even made some additions to assist in web app development. For desktop, we’ve fixed a few bugs that were introduced a little while back.

[FIX] DESKTOP: KillerToolBar now once again clears button hover states when mouse exits the control.
[FIX] DESKTOP: KillerToolBar buttons no longer have captions cut off when in "Labels Only" state.
[FIX] DESKTOP: KillerToolBar is now redrawn properly when customizing button order.
[FIX] DESKTOP: GraffitiAccordion control refresh slightly optimized in an attempt to reduce flicker when refreshing those controls on Windows.
[NEW] WEB: Added GraffitiWebFavIcon
[NEW] WEB: Added GraffitiWebSignature
[NEW] WEB: GraffitiWebAccordionNavItem now has a Tag as Variant property (Report ID: 1873).
[NEW] WEB: GraffitiWebAccordionNav now has a RemoveAll method (Report ID: 1875).
[NEW] WEB: GraffitiWebAccordionNav now has a AddChildToItem method (Report ID: 1874).
[NEW] WEB: GraffitiWebToggle now implements a Visible property (Report ID: 1877).
[FIX] WEB: GraffitiWebAccordionNav's Remove() method now properly updates the view.
[FIX] WEB: GraffitiWebEditor no longer fails with JS error "$ is not defined" due to setting Text property before class is shown.
[FIX] WEB: GraffitiWebEditor no longer throws OutOfBoundsException when Break On Exceptions is enabled and the field's text is empty.
[FIX] WEB: GraffitiWebEditor no longer supports resize.  This is a temporary adjustment until a more intuitive system can be established.
[FIX] WEB: GraffitiWebAlert no longer throws assertions when attempting to Alert on Page.Shown, instead, this call is ignored.  All calls should be made after the GraffitiWebAlert class is instantiated, not the page.
[FIX] WEB: GraffitiWebAccordion no longer improperly references GraffitiWebAccordionNavItem in the Item_Find and Item_Remove methods.
[FIX] WEB: GraffitiWebPopupMenu should now resize properly.
[FIX] WEB: GraffitiWebEditor should now resize properly.
[FIX] WEB: GraffitiWebEditor should no longer scroll off or change size inappropriately.
[FIX] WEB: GraffitiWebEditor no longer loses data assigned to the Text property in the IDE.
[FIX] WEB: All classes now load dependency scripts from files stored on the server [REQUIRES BUILD STEP].
[CHANGE] WEB: GraffitiWebPopupMenu's Items() array and UpdateOptions() method are now exposed to allow more manual control.

Release 14: GraffitiSuite.com Relaunch and Web Edition Launch

JOHNSON CITY, TN (November 30, 2013) GraffitiSuite announces the release of GraffitiSuite Web Edition!

“This release is extraordinarily big for us,” according to Anthony G. Cyphers. “We’ve been planning this release for nearly two years, and now we’re ready to launch Web Edition. Over the next few months we plan to address a lot of bugs users may find, and add a lot of features not currently supported, but GraffitiSuiteWeb is ready for deployment now. We strove to include classes that Xojo developers really needed in their web applications, and we even came up with a new packaging and pricing scheme to go along with them. There’s never been a better time to become a GraffitiSuite subscriber.”

Coming Soon…

We’re always working on new and exciting stuff for User Interfaces. We come up with plenty of solutions that will never see the light of day (as a part of GraffitiSuite, anyway) because it’s either so specific that it couldn’t be reused reliably, or we don’t have permission from the customer who commissioned us to create it. That said, we’ve got at least two new classes ready to be added to GraffitiSuite, and one more hopefully on the way!

We can’t wait to see how our users implement these new classes, as you guys always seem to surprise us with the many ways you can apply our work to your projects.

Now, without further adieu…
