OutPost version 1.5

Saturday, September 30, 2006

Added gzip and deflate compression internally! Now it really rocks :)

1.5.002 - 20061001 0312 twj

  • Removed selected="selected" when comparing html, it caused dropdown boxes to be refreshed without more often than needed
  • Removed call to oForm_doReset after each post back because of the change to the dropdowns
  • Added update of SignUp demo - it now has 3 "linked" controls (two drop-downs and a text field)

1.5.001 - 20061001 0014 twj

  • Added gzip and deflate compression internally
  • Changed namespace OutPost.Core to OutPost
  • Removed constant ContentTypeForNoCompression

1.4.004 - 20060928 1107 twj

  • Added error message when trying to view OutPost.aspx directly
  • Added MinimumSizeForCompression and ContentTypeForNoCompression constants


If you occasionally look at my blog, please drop me a comment once in a while. It keeps me going :) and hopefully keeps me delivering the best performing indirect ajax framework in the world!

OutPost version 1.4

Tuesday, September 26, 2006

This release focuses on optimization of traffic between client and server. As a result of moving away from using SOAP I reduced traffic overhead dramatically.

I also made a OutPost 1.4 demo site - try it out!

OutPost version 1.3

Thursday, September 21, 2006

Version 1.3 now available.

A lot of improvements has gone into this release:

  • New demo with a Sign-Up web form (by request).
  • Removed Session dependency.
  • Restores position and selection in IE on postback.
  • Found problems with unicode characters. As it is your page must include the tag ResponseEncoding="utf-8" in order to work properly with Unicode characters.
  • Added a cloak (event trap) over the form in IE on postback in order to mimick default web form behaviour.
  • Added support for WebForm_AutoFocus.
  • Added support for queueing requests.
  • Added support for reloading script blocks.
  • Added setting LocalHost to specify alternative localhost domain.
  • Added support for HTTP-compression (tested with FlatCompression R1.20.226 from www.flatcompression.org).
  • A lot of bugs fixed.
