The new OF-1 version 3.4 is available!

OF-1 release 3.4 focus on overall performance improvements.

There are 3 main technical aspects:

1) Asynchronous data fetching will get data for independent subscreens with separate AppServer calls. So that is the idea of having independent areas on the screen, which can call for data independently. A massive speed up.

Screen-caching will keep a screen when closing (hide & reuse), this is much faster then to remove and rebuild the screen.

Creating a lot of objects you need for a screen (widgets and a lot of invisible objects) is not too fast in the ABL :)

So reuse some thousand of objects is much faster - a screen then shows up instantly.

Many components (Ribbon Bars, Toolbars, Subscreens...) have performance and usability improvements.

Going through all of them makes a screen 20-50% faster.

kind regards
