One very cool milestone has been reached with version 1.7.4: Feng Office is now available in 25 languages (and a few more coming soon).
Feng Office is currently available in:
|Bulgarian||Catalan||Chinese (Simplified)||Chinese (Traditional)|
|Spanish (Spain)||Spanish (LA)||Swedish||Turkish|
This achievement was made possible by the extraordinary contributions of hundreds of Feng Office community members around the world.
The list of fixed bugs can be read on the release notes. It is not that much fun to list them again, but it is worth commenting that Feng Office robustness, one of the team top priorities (if not “The” top), is greatly improved by this release.
Performance is another one of the most important characteristics of any information system.
As the number of users and the volume of information stored and managed on our biggest customer accounts increase, some queries start to naturally slow down. Performance issues then become noticeable, and even bothering.
That is why version 1.7.4 includes performance improvements like:
- Addition of DB tables indexes to improve query performances
- Improvements on the algorithm for “new e-mail” polling
- Improvements on the algorithm for “reminders” polling
Again, performance is a critical issue for us. Coming versions will also include additional performance improvements.
Feng Sky rollouts are set to begin this Tuesday (March 15) at approximately 3:00 PM (GMT).
Feng Onsite updates will become available this coming Friday (March 18) at approximately 3:00 PM (GMT).
