Upcoming Mendix App Platform December Release – New Debugger, Mobile Images and a Whole Lot More

Our R&D team keeps cranking away and is just about ready to release another substantial update before the Holidays. Just last month we launched enhanced enterprise app management to give IT administrators more management capabilities and control.

Now, we’re going to provide app developers and business engineers a few neat new features for modeling apps. Here’s what we have in store:

Debug Live Apps in the Cloud

We redesigned the debugger from the ground up: you can now debug step-by-step right inside the microflow editor, set break points and inspect values of variables. But that’s not all; you’ll even be able to debug your apps in the cloud – in test, acceptance and production environments.

Version Selector

Install multiple versions of the Mendix Business Modeler side by side and automatically associate your apps with the right Business Modeler version.

Photos for Mobile Apps

Check out a brand new way to snap photos right in your mobile apps. You can take a new picture with the device’s camera or choose an existing photo to load into your app.

And more…

This release includes improved branch management, a new encryption algorithm, more transient object functionality and other smaller enhancements and bug fixes that have been reported by our active community of Mendix users – keep the feedback coming!

And best of all, you won’t have to wait very long. The release is just about ready – scheduled for early next week. Check your e-mail or stay-up-to-date by subscribing to our blog or following us on Twitter, LinkedIn or Facebook.
