v2.64.5 — Form generator, diffing between releases, and full screen code editing

Form Generator

You can now generate a form directly from a database table! Drag out a Form component, click on the “Generate fields from a database” button, choose your table, and we’ll add a query and all the components you need to insert a row. You’ll be able to edit the query and each component just as if you’d created the whole form manually.

Release diffs

We’ve added the ability to view the diff between two different releases. If you want to know which lines in a SQL query are different, or which exact property you tweaked last week on that button, this is your feature.

Full screen editing

Need more room to write code? You can now press F11 to view code editors in full screen. This feature works anywhere you can use {{ }}.

SSO with OAuth providers

For on-premise deployments, you can now implement SSO with any provider that implements OpenID, such as Auth0 and Azure AD. Check out the docs here.
