BCDN Preview Release for August is Live

Click here to find out what Ted is looking at...

We’ve rolled out a new Preview release to https://preview.bungeeconnect.com. This release focused primarily on bug fixes and enhancing the usability of existing features, so there’s not a lot of new functionality to talk about for this release. There are a couple things to call out before we get into the list of bug fixes though.

Deployment Tab
We continue to advance the new deployment tab, which is still in an alpha state. We’re working to make the tab more task based and more easily understood than the old Staging tab. The staging tab is still in this release, but in the next couple releases will be replaced with the new look/feel you see in the Deployments tab. Take a look and try it out. As always we’re looking for your feedback.

Tab list dropdown
The builder now has a drop down menu for all open tabs. This is especially useful for developers who find they are opening a lot of tabs in the design pane. This should save some time for the power developers out there.

That’s pretty much it for new functionality in the Builder.

This release introduces the breaking change that I posted a blog about previously. If you use MySQL in your applications you will need to look closely at this preview build over the next two weeks as this will likely affect your application.

There’s a new error in the event view that you should keep an eye out during simulate sessions. We’re now reporting error messages when a function is called on a variable that hasn’t been constructed. Next release, we’ll be halting in this case. Look for a blog post on this change soon.
