Release candidate for Flamingo 4.1

May 12th, 2009

I am pleased today to announce the availability of release candidate for version 4.1 of Flamingo component suite (code-named Guenivere). It is a stabilization release that adds a few minor features and fixes all known bugs.

Here is the list of minor features added in release 4.1:

  • Rich tooltips for ribbon band expand buttons
  • Horizontal alignment for wrapped ribbon components
  • Internal tracking of disabled state of popup / action areas on command buttons for selecting the correct displayed icon
  • Tree breadcrumb adapter class is now abstract to enforce applications to provide the segment caption
