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.

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.

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

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.

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

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.

Release 16 Web Edition Progress

Due to some major flaws in our implementation of the new WebSDK for Web Edition, we’ve had to push back Release 16 a great distance from our originally intended date. We’re nearly ready to push it out, so here’s an update on what you can expect.
