2023.9, we focus primarily on user interface and customization — both the user interface and data storage flexibility making Corteza easier to configure for a wide range of applications.
Corteza studio enables you to style user interfaces for all of our applications. It enables simple tweaks like changing the colorscheme or large modifications like swapping out the entire stylesheet. Corteza studio enables you to modify Corteza applications to better fit your brand guidelines.
DAL Schema Alterations
DAL schema alterations simplify the process of configuring custom storage solutions for your data.
When we reworked our storage layer, we made it possible to store your records in dedicated tables or even databases.
2023.9 we introduce an automated mechanism to alter the storage location for it to support the module definition.
User interfaces were a big focus for the
2023.9 release; improving user experience when configuring and interacting with your application, as well as laying the groundwork for future releases.
