Jadweb Studio Development Update

As you may have noticed, the Jadweb website now directs to my main website. However, the software pages will be remaining on the Jadweb domain. I am doing this so that I don't have to focus as much on maintaining two websites that in some ways overlap. This gives me additional time to develop Studio and give it new features.

Since the 2020 r1 release I have changed a few things around. In the r1 release, for example, the snippets were accessed from their own window. This has now been changed so that there is a sidebar where these are accessed. This will make accessing the snippets simpler.

Not only that, I have now made all of the included templates as well as the code provided when "New" is selected contain code that forces all versions of IE to render using the latest version possible. This was due to an issue with the preview window, which uses an embedded control and unless forced will run in an IE7 only mode. This new code forces it to run as the latest version installed on the user's machine - so in the case of Windows 7 and higher users, this is IE11 if it is installed.

These new developments should improve the usability of the software, making it much easier to add snippets to your code and also making previewing work a lot better.

Obviously, I am not finished on the new version yet - after all, I only released the latest public release last month. However, there is already lots to look forward to in the latest release of Studio, so I am sure you'll all love it when it's released!
