This is a minor release with a few improvements to the Package upgrade experience.
Profitbase InVision 2023.1 released
This release is a small service release that adds a few improvements to Workbooks, Forms, Web Functions and Table Views. We also move the platform from .NET 6 to .NET 7, which results in better performance in some key area.
Profitbase InVision 2022.5 released!
We’ve just released version 2022.5 of InVision, our low-code platform to build business apps. In addition to a number of bug fixes, the most important feature of this version is the ability to deploy or upgrade Packages created on older versions of the platform. This will enable us to release new versions of the platform at a much higher cadence in the future, so expect a new version to drop about every 2 weeks starting January 2023.
Profitbase InVision 2022.3 released!
2022.3 brings many new features and enhancements to our low-code platform. A major addition is the ability to define extensions for Packages. This enables Profitbase and partners to develop and distribute add-ons to products. You can also upgrade Packages in multiple Solutions in one go, making it much quicker to upgrade customers to new version of Planner, Risk and Consolidation.
InVision 2.7.0 released!
InVision 2.7 marks the beginning of a series of releases that will focus on making the platform cloud native. Although InVision runs fine in the cloud today, we can do even better. We aim to integrate closer with cloud platforms and services, and utilize cloud features smarter to provide better solutions to our customers. It is important to note that even though we’ll focus on cloud platform features, we will still support on-premise solutions 100%, and all features will be available on both configurations.
As a side note, this release contains 11 new features and 7 fixes or enhancements 🙂
InVision 2.6.1 released!
InVision 2.6.1 introduces 23 new features and enhancements. The most interesting new feature in this release is probably the support for macros in SQL Reports and SQL Scripts. Macros enables you to use C# to dynamically generate SQL queries at runtime, before they are executed. You no longer need to concat a string using SQL and then execute it using sp_executesql. For details about how to use macros, you should read this blog post, which goes into details on the subject.
Macros in InVision
Macros can be used in Reports and SQL Scripts to dynamically create and execute SQL queries at runtime without using SQL string concatenation to construct them and sp_executesql for execution. Macros are written in C#, which offers great flexibility for creating both simple and very complex macros.
InVision 2.6 Released
Hello world! The focus for version 2.6 has been about improving filtering capabilities and adding support Form Schemas, which provides a new way to build complex data entry forms.
Form Schemas enable you to quickly create complex data entry forms. While it is possible to create forms in previous versions of InVision, it is inflexible and too time consuming because each Form Element is an isolated entity with its own load, save and validation logic. With Form Schemas, you can create complex forms with automatic data persistence, validation, custom calculations and business logic, styling and layout. Form Schemas are displayed in Workbooks, and have actions and events like all other Workbook component.
InVision 2.5.0 Released
In addition to a number of new features and enhancements, the most important change in 2.5 is a change we’ve made to the core component of the system which handles the identity of the data rows in the database. When upgrading an existing instance, the installer will automatically do all the necessary steps, but it is very important that you back up the Solution database before upgrading in case an error occurs (network, disk, etc).
InVision 2.4.2 Released
Version 2.4.2 is a service release with a few fixes and enhancements. Nothing new and exciting, but we’re working on something…:)
