AppGini 5.70 full change log

Post by a.gneady » 2018-01-23 10:12

Hello dear AppGini users :D

WOW! AppGini has been around for 16 years now and it enjoys a larger than ever community today. I'm really humbled by all your support, encouragement and insightful feedback. Thank you so much!

I'm pleased to announce that we've just released AppGini 5.70. As with every major release, we've added a long list of features, enhancements and fixes. We've received a lot of great suggestions and feature requests from you. As much as we really wish to implement them all, we try our best to carefully introduce them a few at a time in order not to sacrifice quality to feature bloat. But don't worry, we do plan to add your suggestions in forthcoming releases. Great things take time ;)

Here is the full list of changes. Please note that this list has been copied from the comments in our Git repository. Some points might be vague, but feel free to ask if you need any clarifications. To make it easier to follow, I've added a filtered "friendly" list of new features and enhancements first, then the full change log.

New features in AppGini 5.70
  • Added database backup/restore page in the admin area (accessible under the Utilities menu).
  • Option to display the record count of each table in the homepage (to enable, select the table in AppGini and check the option Show record count in homepage).
  • Added 'Show/hide columns' button above table view.
  • Better handling of wide tables in mobile view by allowing users to easily scroll horizontally, one column at a time.
  • Added 'Fix all' button to 'Rebuild fields' page.
  • Added more table icons to choose from.
  • More than 60 enhancements, security and bug fixes.

A minor issue made by mistake and discovered by a user: The new version might show 'Beta' label for some users. It's not a beta but the label was was left by mistake while building the exe file. We've corrected that now and if you see the 'Beta' label in AppGini, you can remove it by re-downloading and installing the pro version. It should show AppGini 5.70 revision 1020 and no Beta label.

Please accept my deep apologies for any inconvenience caused by this issue.
