We’d like to give you a heads up about upcoming changes to Fonto. These changes specifically concern you as a developer, and how you work with Fonto’s SDK. They do not directly affect Fonto’s end users.
For the upcoming 7.7 release of Fonto we plan to modernise Fonto’s build tools, which are used for running development builds and creating production builds. This allows us to implement some much-desired improvements. Specifically, for this release we plan to provide you the following two:
- Faster editor reloads during development.
Currently, a reload of the editor after a configuration change can take up to a few minutes. This can accumulate to a lot of time spent waiting. We aim to boost your productivity by reducing this to a few seconds.
If you’re interested in trying out an early version, please let us know. When we are close to release and feel like things are stable enough, we’ll publish an early version and give you a heads up. If you have any questions about these upcoming changes, please direct them at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we’ll answer them as soon as possible. We’ll provide you with more in-depth details closer to release.
We believe these changes pave the way for future improvements and optimisations to Fonto’s build tools, and we’re looking forward to providing them to you in future releases.
