By 14 March, 2011June 14th, 2024No Comments

We are very happy to announce the release of Feng Office version 1.7.4.
Feng Office 1.7.4 has improved over the previous release, fixing several bugs and adding new features and updates.

Languages

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)
Czech Dutch English Finnish
French German Greek Hungarian
Italian Japanese Korean Lithuanian
Norwegian Polish Portuguese Russian
Spanish (Spain) Spanish (LA) Swedish Turkish
Ukrainian

This achievement was made possible by the extraordinary contributions of hundreds of Feng Office community members around the world.

Bugs fixed

The list of fixed bugs can be read in the release notes. It is not that much fun to list them again, but it is worth commenting that Feng Office’s robustness, one of the team’s top priorities (if not “The” top), is greatly improved by this release.

Improved Performance

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 in the algorithm for “new e-mail” polling
  • Improvements in the algorithm for “reminders” polling

Again, performance is a critical issue for us. Coming versions will also include additional performance improvements.

Rolling out

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).
Community Edition users are encouraged to update at any time. As always, your contributions with further testing and suggestions are more than welcome. Remember to always back up your system before making any changes!

Reporting issues

In case you find any issues with the new version, please report them to the support tickets system if you are subscribed to Feng Sky or Feng Onsite Services. Also, everyone is welcome (and greatly encouraged) to report directly to the bug-tracking system.
