What's New in Version 1.41 (Galileo)

about a month ago by Sherif Kamal

Measure what can be measured, and make measurable what cannot be measured.”

Galileo Galilei
(1564-1642)


Galileo di Vincenzo Bonaiuti de' Galilei: philosopher, astronomer, and mathematician. During his lifetime, he worked on a variety of experiments, including the speed at which different objects fall, mechanics and pendulums. His most notable (and controversial at the time) work was related to his discoveries with the telescope which revolutionized astronomy and paved the way for the acceptance of the Copernican heliocentric system. Galileo influenced scientists for decades to come not only with his work, but also through his willingness to defend his findings.


Inspired by what Galileo evangelized about four hundred years back, one thing we take seriously and always aim to improve is quality. As we continue exploring all the different avenues of improvement which remain ultimately user-centered through closely-monitored feedback channels, we know that it's just as important to identify the right data-driven measures proactively to determine the guiding sensors to a constant stream of evolvement for our integrative features, while maintaining impeccable quality, cutting-edge performance, and a great user experience.


Let's take a look at some of our new improvements:

👍

PLATFORM UPDATES

  • Every click counts! You can now directly get to the customer details page by clicking on the customer name from customers list view, instead of having to use the ellipsis menu.

INTERFACE REFINEMENT & CUSTOMIZATION

  • We strongly believe that to really do something well, you have to leverage the power of people, and that's why as of this release, we're open-sourcing our Pelcro elements codebase to provide you with the flexibility and agility to do more.

SECURITY ENHANCEMENTS & BUG FIXES

  • As always, we tried to come up with a byte sized changelog for our bugs, but we've squashed too many to count.
