iDetailAid 1.8.1

iDetailAid is pleased to announce the release of iDetailAid 1.8.1 which will be available on Thursday 4th October 2018.

This minor release focuses on enhancements to the iDetailAid Viewer API and how developers can create complex interactions with slide content.

Viewer API

All Javascript functions and fields defined in the Slide code editor are now automatically scoped to that slide. This prevents property naming clashes betweens other slides and the global scope.

Each slide can declare both private and public fields, ensuring private data is not accessible outside of the slide, whilst giving the author the ability to expose public data that can be accessed by HTML packages or other slides.

Additional updates

Fixed the Safari and Chrome preview window height issues

An issue was fixed that caused the slide and presentation preview windows to be launched at the wrong size after an update to both Safari and Chrome browsers.

UI / tooltips tweaks

Some minor changes have been made to the iDetailAid user interface including updates to tooltips providing more useful, contextual information to users.

Bug fixes

As always, there have also been a number of minor issues resolved and bugs squashed.
