October BCDN Preview Now Available

The next version of Bungee Connect is now available in preview to BCDN developers. As usual, the BCDN Preview will be online for two weeks before it rolls to production. Access it at https://preview.bungeeconnect.com.

The Preview once again has a recent snapshot of your solutions, but remember: the Preview release is for testing purposes. Any changes you make to your code will not be carried to production when the roll-up happens.

Of course, if you run into any issues, please leave a comment right here to let us know about them.

New Features:

  • Publish tab: The Publish tab (formerly named “Deploy (beta)”) has now officially replaced the Staging tab. Use it to post, share or deploy your code and applications. You can still use the old Staging tab by enabling it in Builder Tab Preferences.
  • Revision Status: If you collaborate with other developers, or maybe don’t always remember what classes you made changes to, you can now view the complete status of an entire solution by right-clicking it in the Solution Explorer and choosing ‘Revision Status.’

  • Number Reformatting for Strings: The new FormatUtil class in Runtime (in TypeLib: Utility) enables you to do several format transformations on strings.
  • AppProject Template and Deployment Requirements Changed: For those of you who have been using Bungee Connect for a while and have already deployed several applications, there’s a significant change to AppProjects that affects how you deploy applications. There will be more information in the docs when the release rolls to production. If you’re curious about the details of the changes, leave us a comment here, or find us in IRC.
