Deployment Time: 11:45 AM PST

Features & Enhancements

Item Description
Performance Enhancement Improved performance for apps with many tables (> 5).

Apps with many tables (> 5) on enterprise accounts will see improved sync performance. The change causes more tables to be fetched in parallel, thereby reducing the overall time waiting for syncs to complete.

Deployment: To be rolled out gradually to all accounts.

Feature Added a Signout button to the Account dropdown on the editor page.
Feature Add new strings from the filtering UI to the Localize options. Strings such as "Has attachment" and "Start date" are included.

Available in the Preview program only.

Bug Fixes

Item Description
Bug Previously, when an integer step value was chosen for a numeric column, we assumed all the values should be integers and showed the telephone-type number input. This behavior was confusing and has been removed.

Rollout changes

None.

Hi @tsuji_koichi , @Takuya_Miyai
This is now 100% rolled out to all enterprise accounts except for one special accounts where we have to proceed more cautiously because of the very large number of concurrent users syncing. If you check your performance profiler, if you look at the fetching data component, you’ll see that the “degree of parallelism” is set to 10 if you have an enterprise account.

As far as we remember correctly, it used to be 2 x processers for Core plan (formally PRO), but we see 3 on Core account, it seems to be improvement?

Hi @praveen

It looks like Free is still a two-processor system.
It would be nice to be able to improve the UX by upgrading the plan.
