Test out this Domain Name Checker powered by Baserow.
Last week, we released version 1.19, which includes several new collaboration features such as @-mentions, a notification system, and the ability to edit and delete comments. Additionally, Baserow now supports deployment on AWS, and we have improved search speed by 3X.
In our announcements, we tend to focus on the big new features, but each release also includes several smaller updates to enhance your Baserow experience. Say hello to:
→ Sort by lookup. @petrs added the possibility to sort the Lookup field type based on the looked-up values from the linked table.
→ New colors. @bram added four new color options for row coloring, single select fields, and multiple select fields. This brings the total number of color options to 40, instead of the previous 15.
→ Line breaks. @petrs added line breaks in the text area of a form view to improve the readability of field descriptions.
→ New filter
is after days ago was added by Sabeeh (our new dev) for filtering records within a specified number of past days.
→ Field name and ID are now included in the Grid view heading contexts thanks to @peter_baserow. Similar to how IDs are displayed after application/table/view names, they are now shown for fields.
We have launched a new initiative called Founder Chat. Every week, @bram answers a question about how we do certain things in Baserow and why.
We’ve already discussed:
