Maintenance Update

June, 2008

This release has introduced image optimization or image bundling into the software. This new feature reduces download times as more and more images and effects are used and minimizes the number of HTTP requests

New Features

  1. Image bundling. Images generated to implement effects are now combined together. This greatly reduces loading time and improves overall user experience when working with XApps
  2. "Stop on script errors" added to Debugger Options. When enabled, XApp will engage the debugger whenever an error is encountered in JavaScript, even if it's being handled by try/catch handler.
  3. If the custom theme is used, it is now saved with the project. This makes it possible to open project on another computer where the theme used might not be installed.
  4. Two new functions are available in Browser framework: double.toFixed and double.toPrecision
  5. It is now possible to reset the panels layout to default using View | Panels | "Reset to default" command
  6. Auto-deployment now uses compression to improve files uploading speed
  7. The Firebird database engine is updated to version 2.1. (In order to keep running Morfik on the same computer as Morfik you will need to patch the Morfik installation to work with Firebird 2.1. The procedure is fairly simple but it is important to note that projects saved in a computer which has been patched to use Firebird 2.1 will NOT be opened in a computer that is running an unpatched version of Morfik which is still using Firebird 2.0.)
  • To patch your installation you should download the following file and copy it to the system folder of your Morfik installation. MFKUDF.SQL

Bug Fixes

  1. Background image for the project could not show through pages
  2. Refreshing the page in Express sometimes stalled the page at the "Loading..." stage
  3. Using Xor in browser-side code caused the XApp to get stuck on 'loading...' in the browser
  4. IDE would freeze during start-up if Windows default printer was misconfigured or unavailable
  5. Odbc data connector caused compiler errors
  6. Attempting to view the content of widestring fields in ODBC linked tables would cause the IDE to crash
  7. IsHyperlink property of TextLabel was not exposed in Properties panel
  8. Report property of Subreport control was not exposed in Properties panel
  9. When a Morfik Basic project was created using the default template, controls were incorrectly declared as public
  10. IE only: grow-and-shrink was not working for pages, resulting in cropping of content
  11. IE only: image effects were not working properly
