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

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 24 Now Available

GraffitiSuite Release 24 is now available for both Web and Desktop! While Release 23 focused on adding new classes to our line-up, we primarily tackled issues with this release, fixing many bugs that hadn’t made the cut in the last release. We’ve also completely rebuilt GraffitiHTMLEditor for Desktop, and added a LOT of functionality that all customers have been asking for.

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.

Release 23 RC 7 Now Available

After a great deal of work whittling down the support tickets which accrued over my far-too-long absence, Release 23 Release Candidate 7 is now available on users’ Account page. Note that this is a Web Edition-only RC.

Release 22 Now Available

With enhancements and bug fixes for GraffitiWebTree, Release 22 is now available. View the full changelog HERE.

Now With Offline Documentation!

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.
