Features & Enhancements

Item Description
Feature Improve Log Analyzer Performance by Caching Log Record Properties.

This change improves Log Analyzer performance by caching Log Record properties. Previously the Log Record properties were decompressed and JSON deserialized them repeatedly. Now the Log Record properties are decompressed and JSON deserializes only once per Log Record. Deployed to all.

Feature When the map view is open, the Use Current Location pseudo-pin now remains in the text input as opposed to the map.
Feature Barcode scanning is no longer supported on white-label apps based on old Android versions.

On April 8, 2021, we announced that owners of older white-label Android apps would need to update them to continue using the barcode scanner. Until now users of such apps have been shown a warning that scanning support would soon be disabled. After this release, scanning will no longer work in these apps.
