We’re very happy to offer a Halloween treat for everyone this month: The first pre-release of FrameFlow v2017.7
We’ve been working hard on this new release for some time now and we think you’re going to be impressed by everything that we’re bringing your way in v2017.7.
The new user interface is the most visible change:
The new interface focuses on a left-to-right workflow and also groups related elements together better than ever before. In particular, the “breadcrumb” section which shows the path to the item you are looking at and the toolbar options which operate on that item are now adjacent. This makes it easy to see right away what you are working on and what options are available to you.
We’ve also made various changes and enhancements to our dashboards. There’s a new panel type for showing graphical status for your switches and routers. It gets its data from your SNMP Bandwidth event monitors so make sure you’ve configured one of them before you get started with the new panel type:
The reports section got a lot of attention as well. The new report builder borrows design features that already work really well for dashboards. It uses the same drag-and-drop design techniques in an interface that is familiar and easy to use.
Even the login screen got a big refresh and a new look:
There’s more v2017.7 than we could possibly describe in just one newsletter view our change log for complete details.
One last note: We’re calling this a pre-release but it’s been through detailed testing. That’s not to say there aren’t still a few kinks to work out but all of the major pieces are in place and running on a stable foundation. We’d really love your feedback on the new release and we encourage you to give it a whirl.
