Latest release information
Now you should be able to access all the dropdown menus on your
iOS devices without the need for a hack added to each layout.
I did say I'd let you know when the next release went out… I'm afraid it took slightly longer than expected because of the two bank holidays – and although the developers were on call in case of emergencies it didn't really seem fair to keep them cooped up working when everyone else was out partying in the rain!
I thought I'd let you know a few of the highlights from this release and you can read the full release notes here:
EU Cookie Law
A lot of you have been asking about what we were doing in response to the cookie law legislation, well, we've added two new features that will help you to comply, you can read more about these on the release notes page.
More Document File Types Allowed
We've extended the list of file types which you can upload to your sites to include all Office 2007/2010 file types including templates, so those organised people out there who have templates for your Church newsletters or stationery can upload these, meaning that everyone working away from the office can access them - nice!
Dropdown Menus Now Working on iPads and iPhones
Lots of you have asked about this - the developers been fiddling for a while to try and make it work, and we think it's sorted now! Phew!
Another bit of Chrome Support…
Selecting columns in the Query wizard can now be done in the Google Chrome browser. We've been slowly chipping away at features that don't work in Chrome and other browsers - the developers here use Chrome themselves, so we know how frustrating the broken bits are! More of this coming soon.
Order Lines for Digital Items can now be Cancelled
This had previously been prevented on the assumption that if a digital item had been bought then it would have been downloaded. However, there are legitimate cases where you might want to cancel an order for a digital item - for example, a duplicate order, or the customer genuinely ordered the wrong item (or thought they were getting a physical item). Shop admins can now cancel digital order lines - but of course you should be aware that the item may already have been downloaded.
There are also a variety of bug fixes, but I'll let you check those out on the release notes page.
…and, as mentioned in my last post, we're still ploughing on with the new look Web Office and the optimisation for Chrome and Safari, I'll let you know when I hear more…
