Morfik 3 further enhances the presentation capabilities of user interface controls with new animation and transition effects. The rich user interface controls built into Morfik IDE are among the most graphically striking elements available in development tools today. Morfik 3 narrows the gap between the skill set of application developers and graphic artists and the results are serious web business applications with stunning visual appeal developed in record time.
I asked Dmitry Medvedev, who is leading the development of these new features, for some technical insight. Here is what he said:
Today I would like to share with you a preview of another exciting new feature found in the upcoming Morfik 3—an enhanced widgets system. I called Sergey Kostinsky and asked him for some insight into this. Here is what he said:
One of the biggest surprises of Morfik 3 is going to be delivered through a package! While the Morfik development team is still unsure about its inclusion in the first beta, they are confident that this package will be ready in time for the final release.
For a wide range of developers, native database connectivity (for databases other than Firebird) has been an important missing feature in Morfik. The Morfik development team spent a lot of time examining various methods for incorporating this feature into the product. They have come up with a powerful way to bring you native database connectivity using the package architecture.
Let me start by saying how pleasantly surprised I was yesterday when I looked at the latest build of Morfik 3.
While going through the standard routine of creating a new project, Morfik IDE presented me with some ready-made web page templates ("pages as first class objects" are key new design entities in Morfik 3 and you will hear a lot more about them), but what really caught my attention was the fact that it included specially designed template pages for iPhone!
Personally I feel most people using the internet don’t notice or appreciate the wonderful work of DNS (Domain Name System) servers. There is no reason really for them to think about it; they type an address on the browser and the website appears. Like a phone number, you dial the right number and the right person answers. That is fine until you offer an online service on the internet, you have your own domain name and somehow you need to use a DNS service. Since most Morfik users will be using Morfik DAS, sooner or later it will be essential to know a few things about DNS and how it relates to Morfik DAS.
After waiting for what felt like an eternity my new iPad was hand-delivered to my home yesterday, three weeks ahead of its scheduled release in Australia. It did not take me long to get up and running. Loading content through iTunes went smoothly and I was soon playing with the familiar iPhone content on this new device.
Of course, the first thing I wanted to do was check out how Morfik apps ran in the iPad. But more importantly, I wanted to find out for myself whether this new device would live up to the hype and could really change the way we experience the web. Naturally here at Morfik things like that are very important to us. The last time I was this excited was when IE5 was released. IE5 was the first browser that made it possible to think of the web as a software platform. It has been a long time since anything as significant that has happened in the world of browsers. Of course there have been a lot of major improvements over the years but no game changers. So, I was really keen to experience it first-hand.
We are pleased to announce the release and immediate availability of Morfik 2.4. You can download the update from here. In addition to bug-fixes and other improvements, there is one feature that makes this release especially exciting—the introduction of a new documentation system.
Comprehensive and up-to-date documentation was something that Morfik had been lacking for some time.
The Amazon Ads Package is designed to display Amazon Product Links and Banners on Morfik-built websites.
Place the widget on the form, then visit Amazon Associates Central website, select the banner or link you want to show on your website, copy the text generated by Amazon, and paste it into the HTMLCode property of a widget. That’s it—you can now run your project and see the ads being displayed.
Recently a developer on our blog site made the following comment: "I’ve been watching and trialing Morfik for about a year now. I still can’t use it because of one simple thing. You haven’t created a properly functioning, bug free, good user experience continuous editable form."
Well, I am about to share with you something that will completely change that!
In Morfik 3 the implementation of Continuous Editable Forms is dramatically enhanced. In fact it will have features of both Continuous and Single Forms; content will be displayed like Continuous Forms but will have the editing capabilities of Single Forms! The best way to get a feel for the improvements in performance and usability is to have a look at the following Continuous Editable Forms demo:
Any new and revolutionary technology will face the dilemma of supply and demand prerequisites for third party support. Generally, third parties will wait until demand for a service reaches a level that ensures profitability before providing such a service. Web hosting is no exception to this rule and Morfik has specifically developed its deployment technology with this in mind.
