  • the performance of the home page has further been improved by dynamically loading the administration section
  • the grouping unit of the performance chart on the dashboard can now be changed inline

Released Housekeeping version 41

Version 41 is at least a 270° refactoring release of the Housekeeping web application while adding some new features

  • 24 bugs have been fixed
  • completed refactoring to coercive typing breaks compatibility with PHP 5, but makes code more robust and easier to maintain
  • a performance chart has been added to the dashboard, which shows that this version rectifies most of the performance drawbacks introduced by new features of previous versions
  • bar charts now auto-scale depending on the number of bars to display
  • sliding overlay messages supersede the previously used modal ones
  • the management of object selections has been reworked in order to be more user friendly
  • another font is used that makes reading small text easier
