We are moving fast towards out target to make the old swing client obsolete and will be able to maintain the whole of metasfresh via the new Web User Interface based on ReactJS/ Redux in a short time.
In this weeks Release we focused on the development of the new picking functionality in WebUI and on a lot of smaller improvements that further raise the level of fun using metasfresh. The new Avatar area is now implemented, allowing the user to easily create individual settings. Further on we have finished the bookmark feature that allows the user to star the favorite windows/ and elements and reach them via the navigation menu.
