Release v0.67.0

This release introduces optional, anonymous, as-private-as-possible usage tracking, purely so that we can answer the question “how many people are using Manyfold?”. There is a detailed breakdown of exactly what data is collected and how we use it in the admin manual, but in summary, we collect only the application version you’re running, and we can’t access or save it, other than getting aggregated statistics.

Release v0.66.1

Just a quick bugfix for v0.66!

Release v0.66.0

On the surface, this release is mostly about more accessibility - keyboard controls for rotating 3d models, correctly-tagged languages, and colour contrast. But in order to do that, behind the scenes the 3d renderer has had a massive rewrite, and I hope you’ll find it a lot faster and smoother to use!

Weeknote: 2024-W18

In last week’s note, I discussed the accessibility audit we’d just done; well, the rest of the week was spent fixing all the problems raised. Well, almost all.

Release v0.65.0

This release is all about improving accessibility after a recent audit. No new features as such, but if you’re a screen reader or keyboard user you should find the site much easier to use. We now have skip links for large content blocks, proper tab ordering, better labels for links and buttons, and much more. We now use shape as well as colour to differentiate problem severity icons, which should help users with reduced colour vision.

Weeknote: 2024-W17

Well, that didn’t take long. Three weeks in and I forgot to write the weeknote. Still, only a day late.

Weeknote: 2024-W16

Last week in Manyfold development saw a bit more rabbithole spelunking again, and once again not quite the focus I was after.

Weeknote: 2024-W15

I haven’t talked much about Manyfold’s development so far other than just pushing out code, and so I thought I’d start giving weeknotes a try. Prior warning though, I’m terrible at habits like this, so this may be sporadic, or disappear into nothing. I’ll start with trying to do a weeknote each Monday about the previous week’s progress.

Release v0.62.0

The features in this little release weren’t on the roadmap; think of this as more of a weekend bonus! Images in a model are now shown in a carousel at the top of the page, with the individual 3d files further down. Also, the bulk editor doesn’t include images any more (because they didn’t have anything to edit).

Release v0.61.0

This release brings the ability for your users to recover their forgotten passwords, and stay logged in between browser sessions. The speed of the mesh analysis jobs has also roughly doubled, which makes detecting those holes a bit less expensive.

posted on 12 Apr 2024

Release v0.60.0

In this release, Manyfold takes a step inside your files to make sure they’re printable! During scan, we look at the mesh structure of OBJ and STL files and make sure they don’t have any holes. If they do, we’ll raise a Problem so you can investigate further.

Lots of new stuff! You can now tell VanDAM how you want your files organised on disk. By creator? Collection? Tag? All of the above? Now you can!

There are also lots of improvements around tagging, and some new library options like custom icons!
