Update: 2020 Beta 3 (free for everybody)

Postby Karlis » Thu Oct 24, 2019 2:15 pm

Today we have made available WeBuilder 2020 Beta. Beta will be only available for the WeBuilder; Rapid CSS, HTMLPad or Rapid PHP will come as later betas or production releases only. The official final release date and upgrade availability will depend on the amount of problems detected in beta.

What is Beta? Should I install it?
Beta is an experimental test version of an unfinished future release of the software. It may contain more bugs and issues than regular releases, at the same time it contains features from the future releases. While we use our own Betas in production environment and think that our Betas are pretty stable, we can only recommend Beta versions for adventurous advanced users rather than routine production use.

Download
Download from here:
https://download.blumentals.net/webuild2020beta3.exe

What's new?
Here is a list of changes and new features:
https://www.webuilderapp.com/whatsnew2020.php

Installing WeBuilder 2020 beta
* Version 2020 can co-exist with WeBuilder 2018 and 2016 and it is installed in a separate folder by default.
* Almost all settings are shared between versions and you can use both versions.
* Be careful with uninstalling any version (new or old) of WeBuilder. Make sure you choose to keep your settings when prompted by installer.

How can I contribute when using Beta version?
* It is important that you report any bugs via our support website (https://www.webuilderapp.com/support-contact.php) mentioning that you are using Beta version (preferably state full version info from About box, e.g. 16.0.0.215)
* Beta most likely will contain bugs and every bug you find is a success if you report it to us.
* Please contact support ONLY regarding bugs, errors and obvious misbehaviour. (Do not send us e-mails like "I do not like the splash-screen" or "why did you not add all the features I requested?")
* If you have some comments or thoughts that are not bug reports, please DO share them, but only in this forum.
* We have very limited resources and support staff is overloaded already. We will appreciate if you give precise and detailed step-by-step problem reports to maximize the efficiency of the communication.

Thank you and enjoy, you are the best!

The Download link on https://www.webuilderapp.com/whatsnew2020.php refers to the 2018 version. Is this intentional?

It is a bug = your report is a success.

Thanks a lot for this release, I've waited longingly for it. :-)

What happened to my CSS proposal?

In VSCode I also like that quite well.

Every editor has that by now.

It is still in the todo list, actually we were discussing this a few weeks ago. Most likely we will not be able to make it to this release, due to lack of time and complexity of the editor component. Suggestions are in hundreds, but developers are only two. However I personally like and need this feature a lot so we shall see how to make it happen eventually.

Beta 2 fixes some bugs found in Beta 1 and adds high DPI support for +/- collapse buttons. Also some code cleanup was done.

Could you post a list of the bugs fixed in each release?
