Beachvolleyball, BBQ und Beisammensein

Das Sevenval Sommergrillen – eine Kölner Tradition die wir am Standort Berlin seit 2012 gern übernommen haben – fand dieses Mal am Beach Mitte statt. Zusammen mit den Teams von Sensorberg und Applause wurde Beachvolleyball und Badminton gezockt. Dazu gab es Sonnenschein, Gegrilltes und Geschnatter. Es hat wirklich Spaß gemacht!.

Hier ein paar Eindrücke von einem ganz sportiven und auch gemütlichen Abend:

FITML 4 Processor 7.1.36

We have just released a new version of our FITML 4 Processor. fitml.com is as usual already running the latest version. Login to use the documentation links below.

New mobile operating systems

Windows Phone 8.1 and iOS 8 (beta) have been released and along came a few bugs or behavioral changes that we had to deal with. Changes in JavaScript events (Windows Phone 8.1) and CSS bugs (iOS 8) mostly affected moduleSlider and moduleScroll which we had to fix. Differences in viewport behavior (Windows Phone 8) made us review the way we detect viewport sizes and device pixel ratios. This lead to better results in image quality on both Windows Phone 8.0 and 8.1.

Complete list of changes

Bug fixes

  • Forms that are nested in moduleScroll now perform a lot better on iOS 8 devices.
  • A bug was fixed that possibly caused Windows Phone 8.1 devices to show the wrong slider element(s) after orientation change.
  • Fixed a bug where Windows Phone 8.1 devices and some Desktop Browsers would behave unexpectedly when nesting moduleSlider within another moduleSlider with the same slide direction.
  • Fixed a bug in Embedded Browsing for Mobile IE 11 when navigating backwards.
  • Fixed blurred text in nested moduleScrolls or moduleSliders in iOS 8.
  • Fixed problems with viewport and pixel density, resulting in different browser_width / browser_height and better images for Internet Explorer on Windows Phone 8.0 and 8.1.
  • Fixed a bug with disabled moduleSlider following another moduleSlider.
