News and Stories
2017 has been a fantastic year so far. We’ve put a lot of work into improving Structr, and the product has made huge progress in many areas. We added schema-based import wizards for CSV and XML, we improved the overall performance, and we added and fixed lots of tiny things to make your Structr experience even better.
Just after GraphConnect New York, we’re thrilled to announce the 2.2 release of Structr, full of improvements and new features. It’s an important step towards our upcoming major release 3.0, which will feature a brand new, modern user interface along with some big changes “under the hood”.
