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.

Coming Soon for Desktop

So Anthony has been working really hard on a new class for Desktop, and it’s looking awesome! He’s looking back over years of customer emails, support tickets, and forums posts to try and create exactly what everyone wants…a GREAT grid control for desktop. Don’t believe me? Check this out…

Now, it’s not quite ready for release yet, but some more testers would be nice. If you have a current subscription to GraffitiSuite Desktop, just use the contact form on the GraffitiSuite home page to get involved! Break the class, suggest features, help Anthony make a truly awesome Xojo Desktop Grid.

[UPDATE]
Even more new features to make it the best yet…

[UPDATE 2]
GraffitiGrid now draws a fully populated list at full-screen in 0.002000000000000000050836482 seconds!

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!

Release 20 Coming Soon

Release 20 is coming along nicely, so how about an update of what’s included?

GraffitiSuite Web Edition is the primary focus of this release, with nearly 50 changes in so far. Of those, 5 are completely new products, 4 are added functionality, and 36 are bug fixes. Special attention has been paid to dialogs and resizing in this release, so we’ve rewritten the WebPage of the demo to add the ability to test that functionality.

GraffitiSuite Desktop Edition will also see some love in this release with a fix for Scaling Factor on non-Cocoa targets (we now actually get a scaling factor on Windows, as well). You’ll also see a new addition in this release that has actually been worked on periodically for the last few years.

We have no set release date, but we’re working to get it ready as fast as we can since it includes some compatibility fixes for Xojo Web 2014r3.1

CHANGE WEB All GraffitiWeb classes now instantiate jQuery in noConflict mode.
