GAE-Studio Newsletter #6

The agile Bees are working really hard to develop the best tool ever for working with Google App Engine. We want to make using the GAE stack easy and fun. We’re happy to announce the release of GAE-Studio 0.8.1, the latest version of our rapidly evolving GAE development environment !

What to expect in this newest version?

We have completed the redesign of the application that we initiated a few weeks ago. We also added a logout button and tweaked some of the feedback/error messages to improve your user experience, which is always important to us.

At a technical level, we have added a much-requested feature : the ability to import and export data from Google App Engine. At the moment, there’s an import limit of 2 Gb, due to the limitations of GAE Blobstore, but within that limit the import/export feature works. Additionally, we fixed an issue with the prior version of GAE Studio which did not allow people to activate email addresses containing a “+” character.

A quick warning note : we’re planning to refactor our authentification API in the next iteration of GAE-Studio, so when we will release 0.9, you will need to update to the newest version.

As usual, thanks for reporting any issues that you find when working with GAE Studio. That feedback is our most powerful resource for making the software better. We’d love to hear more! If you have a few minutes today, please let us know what you like most about GAE-Studio, what you like least, and what features you’d like us to add. We appreciate your advice. Drop us an email or use the issue tracker to let us know what you think.

Thanks a lot and we look forward to your feedback !
