Mendix 3.3.0 has been released

Mendix 3.3.0 has been released by Arjan van IJzendoorn

We are proud to announce that version 3.3.0 of the Mendix technology has been released. It contains about six new features, eleven improvements of existing features and twenty-six fixes. Below we describe the highlights of these changes.

The batch translate and replace dialogs now support exporting and importing translatable texts to and from Excel. This makes it possible for an external party to translate application texts without Modeler access. Another often requested feature for these dialogs is to be able to see where texts appear in the model. The occurrences of each text are now shown in an extra grid from which you can also open the corresponding documents. Finally, you can edit texts in a pop-up which makes it possible to enter line breaks in translations.

With version control you can revert local changes that were made since the last commit. But what if the changes have already been committed? In version 3.3.0 you can ‘reverse merge’ committed changes into your local copy of the project. This goal of reverse merge is to undo the effects of a selected revision in the history. Afterwards, your local project will look like the changes never happened; if you ‘reverse merge’ the adding of a form, the form will be deleted locally. Just like when you are doing a normal merge, conflicts can arise. In the example, if later commits change the added form, the reverse merge will result in a conflict. After resolving any problems, you can commit the results to the repository.

Other improvements are:

  • support for the import statement in WSDL,
  • asynchronous generation of CSV and Excel exports (with a progress bar), and
  • more control over the tab order.
