Love the new features in this version and the immediate responses on most of the requests!
Awesome work, Servoy Dream Team!

By the way: it seems that the Servoy Client on OS X starts up way faster than previous releases!

[enh]-solutions can be used as modules

Awesome! Saves me a lot of time making wrappers for modules that are also used as solutions.

Kudos for this great release!

Where can I download this version.

My auto update does not work from work, I guess its some issue with nework security, because the auto update works fine from home.

Ok, I was not sure if this release is the current "latest Release" from the developer site. There is no way to determine what version I am downloading until I have installed it.


I will download it and install.

I agree it would be nice if the installer had a version code such as servoy_installer_2_2_1.jar

Servoy Crew: Would this be possible? I'm with Erich in not always feeling secure re "which version am I downloading". And unless we rename the dl'd file ourselves, we have no clue what version any installers are that are sitting around on our hard drives ... could you hold our hands just a little bit on this one?

Actually R2.2.1 loads MUCH faster on my mac.

I too would feel much more comfortable if I could be sure about the version I'm downloading

One small doubt - perhaps I'm missing something: I can't find the image plugin described in the enhancements document.

great job Servoy team! thank you.
