Fixed bugs
🐛

Pick year and month via vertical scroll

  • To easily navigate across years and months, scroll vertically.

Apps open databases on low-memory devices

iPhone, iPad
  • Opening a database for the first time on a device with low memory causes the iPhone and iPad app to crash.

Displaying relevant releases only

Private Cloud and On-Premises
  • In user management, view previous releases that are relevant for your setup.
    • Previously, release versions and dates that only applied to Public Cloud were also shown for Private Cloud and On-Premises.

Records APIs respect admin user role permissions

Private Cloud
  • APIs now make use of the user role permissions to show data.
  • If a table is protected by admin-only access, a user trying to call a records endpoint needs to be an admin for that table, so that the APIs return data.
  • Otherwise, no data is shown when that user calls a records endpoint in order to protect the table's contents.
Team owners: Make sure to assign the admin role to collaborators working with APIs if your table data is protected by admin permissions.

GET retrieves files with special characters in file name

  • GET endpoint can now retrieve a single file when the file name contains any special characters.
    • Previously, GET was returning an Internal Server Error contained special characters like ę.

http function with POST properly sends XML

  • http function with POST sends XML as text/xml.
    • Previously, the function was stringifying XML, i.e., sending it as text/plain instead.

sendEmail() properly sends attachments

  • sendEmail() function successfully sends attachments in triggers and do as server statements.
    • Previously, when used in triggers, the function would not send attachments at all.
    • Also, when used in a do as server statement the function caused the app to crash and return a Server not responding error message.

Fields fixed

  • Appointment field
    • The field now keeps the previously entered time interval.
      • Previously, when a time interval is entered in an Appointment field that is not 1 hour and that field's date was later updated, the field changed the time interval to 1 hour.
  • Radio reference field
    • When using the Radio field, the UI now updates accordingly.
  • Image field
    • Videos can be successfully uploaded to the Image field.

    • Either apply changes upon successful completion or discard changes if any of the code in the wrapped script fails

Smart caching
