Webix 6.4: No Breaking Changes, Only Improvements

Today we are happy to introduce Webix 6.4. We dedicated this release to stabilizing the library itself and its integration with backend platforms. Alongside the long list of fixes, the new version includes the support of Amazon S3 for File Manager, .NET backend examples for Webix widgets, and the updated WJet CLI tool for quick prototyping of Webix Jet apps. Read more for details.

Webix 6.4 Release

99 Little Bugs in the Code…

We took them down and patched them around… Which leads us to the key of today’s release – improved stability of the core library and complex widgets. Webix 6.4 includes over 70 bug fixes, the most notable of which are:

  • fixed dragscroll for column DnD in Datatable, which is used for auto scrolling of datatables with big contents during DnD,
  • fixes for the minuteStep setting of Calendar and Datepicker,
  • user interaction with modal/disabled views,
  • some tooltip and DnD issues,
  • styling stabilized.

The whole bunch of bug fixes can be found on the What’s new page.
