So, what happened to 1.09, 1.10 and 1.11?
Version 1.09 does not exist. I’ve changed it to 1.10 so I can use the major number as the main release update and the minor number for maintenance releases. e.g. maintenance releases for 1.10 are 1.11,1.12, etc… The next big release is 1.20.
Highlights of the releases:
All components are fully dynamic
In a ‘static’ page, all the components are written in the .html file. In a ‘dynamic’ page they are not. Only when you connect as a user, the components are inserted in their browser.
New component ABMTimeLine
ABMTimeline is a component to present a time line of events. Using the ABMTimeLineElement you can create events, with some assets like images.
New component ABMFlexWall
ABMFlexWall is a simple galarie component for images. Together with the IsMaterialBoxed=true setting, it creates an easy to use image wall.
Speed, the need for speed…
Following all the guidelines of Google, ABMaterial is one of the fastest framesworks around. Not only in time of development, but this is certainly the case for the user experience. And all done in the background for you!
Firebase Auth and Storage support (1.20)
ABMaterial is always on top of new technologies. Latest in line is support of Googles Firebase API. You can use Firebase Auth to login to your ABMaterial (1.20) WebApp and with Storage, you can upload/download files with ease. Together with B4X Firebase support, you can build the most powerful apps ever.
New components ABMSVGSurface, ABMFileInput, ABMTableMutable and ABMPatternLock (1.20)
Always on the move, new components are introduced with every release. Donators can find more info on these new components in their mail. More on this blog when 1.20 is released to the public.
Until next time!
