0.8

0.8.7 BETA

2023 Aug 13

  • Webinar support was added as "a scope change" in the Zoom backend

  • The app version number remains the same since no changes done to the application itself

  • Currently waiting for approval from the Zoom Apps team

IMPORTANT

  • This change WILL REQUIRE users to log back into SPX Graphics for Zoom -app and re-authenticate

  • A new login will most likely remove all previously saved user settings, uploaded images, and Pro licenses and those will need to be entered again

  • This is an interim issue that relates to version 0.8 and in the upcoming releases, all user settings are saved into the cloud and not on the local device and this same issue should not happen again.

0.8.7 BETA

2023 July 18

  • Minor bug fixes and improvements (setting saved)

  • Enterprise licensing added

  • Webinar support added

0.8.6 BETA

2023 May 03

This upgrade simplifies the user experience of the app and adds some minor general quality improvements.

User-facing new features

  • New fields visible in the Setting and Pro License -tabs

  • Infinite loop -checkbox option in the Headlines base layer

  • "Factory reset" functionality is introduced in the Settings tab. This is for recovering from a persistent error, such as corrupted data. This will remove all user-saved settings, including images and the Pro license. Once removed the graphics rendering will not work unless Zoom Video is turned off and on - or the app is closed and restarted.
     

​​UI changes and improvements

  • Headline looping (re)enabled with a checkbox

  • Move settings from the "welcome view" to the Settings tab

    • base design selector

    • image uploading

  • Move licensing fields from the "welcome view" to the Pro License tab
    Add leading zeros to minutes and hours in 24h clock formats

  • fixed vertical accent line position in the name strap graphic

  • base design selector moved to the Settings tab 


Technical changes

Known issues and limitations

  • Headlines content texts may duplicate on save

  • Headlines in the Zebra base design may render incorrectly 

  • Variant changing is disabled on the Welcome page
