Scrivito JS SDK 1.1.0 Is Available

After successfully launching Scrivito in mid-February this year and collecting valuable feedback from testers and customers, we set ourselves to work: There is nothing that cannot be improved.

Major improvements

Auto updating

Wouldn't it be nice if the changes made by other editors were instantly reflected in your browser window? At Scrivito, we are working hard to make auto-updating a reality. This will be extremely helpful for editors working on the same page in the same working copy.

With this release we’ve gotten one step closer to this goal. If you are in a working copy in preview mode, Scrivito now looks for new changes every two seconds and makes them visible to you. In editing mode, page content is not yet updated automatically, but will be in a future release.

And now enjoy the show:

Automatically created first working copy

The number of steps that needs to be taken to start your first editing session has been reduced: Switching from the preview to the editing mode without a working copy being available yet now causes a working copy to be automatically created for you. Start editing right away!

Minor improvements

Widget handles and frames are now fading out after a short period of time, making it easier to edit widget content in place.

The new Scrivito.finishLoading() function notifies the application that the current page has been rendered completely (and is not waiting for content required to render it). This can be quite useful, e.g., to defer the loading or execution of expensive JavaScript code until a page has been fully displayed, or to notify a prerendering service that the page content is now ready to be captured.

It is now possible to open links in HTML fields in new tabs or windows by holding the modifier key (Cmd in OS X, Ctrl in Windows) when clicking, or clicking with the middle mouse button.

As an editor, it is now possible to clear attributes of the integer and float types.

Scrivito now copes better with unreliable network connectivity or slow response times: it doesn't throw an error anymore but retries the request instead.

The performance of the in-place editing UI has been improved by minimizing the amount of page components that require rerendering after changing content.

Bugfixes

Editable reference fields now change the mouse pointer to a cursor when hovered.
