Import improvements

Values in .csv files for to:many connection values split on newlines can now be imported.

Serving new code versions

Functionality is now in place so that a regular browser refresh will obtain our latest code version. This will make it much easier for users to make sure they have the latest Live App version. A full cache clear is no longer needed to ensure the most up-to-date code version.


As apps continue to grow and add complexity, we’ve found that our servers are hitting their limits more quickly than anticipated, which can lead to app slowness. We’ve improved our logging so we can react to these limits and add capacity much more responsively.
