Release Notes: October 2018

We are improving InVision by squashing bugs and releasing new features every day. Here's an account of what we've accomplished this month.

Studio

What's New as of Studio version 0.98.1

  • Frictionless sign in: Recent Studio releases focused on making it as painless as possible to get started with Studio. You may notice improvements when creating accounts, making advanced network configurations, and signing in to both personal and Enterprise accounts.
  • Mirroring to Android devices: You can now mirror Studio prototypes to Android devices.

Bug Fixes & Improvements

  • Issue with large files: This release addresses the issue that prevented certain layers from rendering after you clicked the Return to Start icon in the motion editor.
  • Streamlined account creation process: Studio no longer includes repetitive and unused form elements in the account creation flow.
  • Issue creating new accounts: Now users who create a new account from the Studio Launcher won't run into the white screen that previously said only "Login Successful."
  • Issue with new account form: Users will now see any necessary error messages as expected should an error occur when completing the new account form. Previously, these error messages were not displaying for some users.
  • Issue signing in to Enterprise accounts: Enterprise customers will no longer encounter the issue that caused the Projects webpage to load in the sign-in view after an unsuccessful attempt to sign in.
  • Improved performance for VPN clients: If using a VPN when signing in or publishing Studio prototypes, you may notice the improved performance and reliability built in to Studio 0.98.0 and later.
  • Re-authenticate less often:
    • When connecting through certain proxies, Studio now uses the system proxy and no longer requires you to re-authenticate after restarting Studio.
    • Private Cloud users no longer have to re-authenticate every time they restart the app.
  • Issue returning to personal sign-in form: Users will now be returned to the personal sign-in form as expected when they click Personal sign in at the bottom of the sign-in dialog.
  • Issue saving changes when signing out: When attempting to sign out before saving changes, users will now be prompted to save the file as expected (rather than seeing the sign-in dialog, as this issue was causing previously).
  • Issue with broken links: The links for Terms of Service and Privacy Policy now work as expected in the Studio Early Access sign-up form.

Collaboration

What's New

  • New onboarding process: If creating a new personal account, you will see the new onboarding flow, which helps people get up to speed with the InVision product suite more quickly.
  • Upgrade Now call to action: If you qualify for a new plan, you will see an “Upgrade Now” call to action message (on all pages that include the global navigation).
  • Upgrades to Inspect for Studio: You may notice that Inspect for Studio has been upgraded with the latest Studio renderer and engine versions to improve animation performance.
  • New icons in InVision: When viewing a Studio prototype in InVision, you'll see that the icons for Play mode, Comment mode, and Inspect mode have been updated.

  • CUBOT phones: You can now use CUBOT phones to access InVision.
  • Issue with 'Remove from Team' text: The text is no longer cut off in the “Remove from team” dropdown menu in Team settings.
  • Main projects page: Enterprise users will now see all their prototypes in the main projects page as expected.
  • Sign up form issue: If an account owner tries to create a new account, they will see a notification that an account already exists.

    • You will no longer encounter the bug that prevented artboard scrolling when viewing document links on mobile devices.
    • Elastic scroll support on tablet devices has been removed to correct the issue that was allowing over-scroll behavior.
  • Issue with transparent backgrounds: Now you won't run into the bug that had caused transparent backgrounds to render as black backgrounds when viewing prototypes in Safari and Firefox.

  • New color menu in Freehand: It's now quicker to change your default color with the new, more easily discoverable color menu.
  • Shortcut for italic text in Freehand: Now you can use the keyboard shortcut Command + I to italicize text.
  • New look for Freehand: You will notice a familiar look and feel in Freehand, as the UI has been updated for consistency with other InVision products.
  • Comment thread experience: When replying to a thread, the thread now scrolls to the position of the reply and fades out the rest of the thread.
  • Sharing with request access: You can now request access from the owner of any document. We’ll send the owner an email letting them know you’d like access. Once access is granted, you’ll get an email letting you know you can now open the document.
  • Introducing recently viewed: When you open InVision Cloud V7 (or open the Documents page or All Documents tab), you will now see your documents sorted by Recently Viewed, making it easier to find the documents relevant to you currently.
  • Slack notification bundling: If your Cloud V7 space or team has implemented Slack integration, updates to prototype screens trigger notifications in Slack. Those notifications are now bundled together and sent out every three minutes. This improvement will help prevent notification overload when you’re making numerous changes at a time.
  • InVision for Jira & InVision for Confluence Updates for both Cloud & Server Add-Ons:
    • These updates include performance improvements and an easier installation process for both Jira and Confluence. We have also reinstated limited support for Jira and Confluence servers running without SSL.
    • Enterprise Private Cloud Installations: An update is needed in your plugin setup. The previous version of the add-on is being deprecated, so you’ll need to update your plugin prior to November 26th to continue using the integration.

Bug Fixes & Improvements in Cloud V7

  • Comment times: The formatting for Date and Time is now consistent for all aspects of commenting. You may also notice that the bug that caused essentially duplicate time stamps has been corrected; previously, you may have seen one time stamp that said "about 24 hours ago" right next to a second time stamp that said "A day ago."
  • IE 11 compatibility: Conversations in Cloud V7 are now fully compatible with IE 11.
  • Issue with links in email notifications: Emails generated from comments in Cloud V7 now link to the correct document in all cases.

    • When viewing a prototype (i.e., using Play mode) in Cloud V7, you will no longer see archived screens.
    • Now if you delete all of your archived screens in Cloud V7, you should not encounter the bug that caused all screens in the prototype to be deleted.
  • Issue dragging a screen in a prototype: Now you won't encounter the bug that left the hover state broken when trying to drag a screen in a prototype with only one screen.
  • Corrected typo: Now when deleting a prototype, you won't see a typo in the confirmation screen.
