Version 2018.7 Pre-Release
December is just around the corner and so is a new FrameFlow release packed with goodies just in time for the holiday season. If you’re excited to get a preview of the new release you can download a pre-release build by logging into your account on our site.
The pre-release includes better UI performance when running on IIS, new options to control the size of line labels on network diagrams, better SQL code editors for the database event monitors, a few user interface improvements and fixes for a few issues that were recently reported.
There’s only one issue holding up the official release. We’re investigating an issue where, in some configurations, the SSH Command event monitor is failing to execute the supplied commands. Once that is resolved v2018.7 will be officially released.
Demo Time: Network Diagram Lines
As we mentioned above, we’ve added the ability to control the size of line labels on network diagrams. In case you haven’t seen how easy it is to build beautiful diagrams in FrameFlow, we’ve put together this short screen capture that shows the process:
Sneak Peek: Portal Updates
Earlier this year we introduced a support ticket system to help us better manage your questions, bug reports, tips, and suggestions. It’s been very popular but we’ve also heard your feedback that there’s room for improvement.
One of the primary problems is with having to maintain both an account for your downloads and license settings plus another one for ticketing and support. Soon we’ll be merging those two so you’ll have one-stop shopping with a single portal for everything.
Apart from merging the ticketing and downloads, we are also adding new options. You’ll soon have the option to download previous releases. We’re also adding a section that lists known issues in the current build. This portal update is now in testing and is scheduled for release in January.
That’s all for this month’s newsletter but as always, if you have suggestions, feature requests or anything else, don’t hesitate to send them our way. Your feedback has been instrumental in helping us to improve FrameFlow and add great new features.
