The last 2.1 release

Hello friends! We hope you're having a great summer.

We've been very busy working on the 2.2 release of Mockups, which will include a new awesome look and feel, a new wireframe skin for you to use and a new "Site Map" control type. The release is ALMOST ready, and you can try it today here.

We are aiming to release 2.2 at the end of the month, after some of our engineers get back from vacation. :)

In the meantime, we wanted to get out one more 2.1 release, which include some bug fixes and other minor enhancements.

Here's what's new in today's release:

  • All versions: Arrow heads now look good on straight arrows. Thanks Rolias for reporting it!
  • All versions: Fixed a number of Button Bar sizing and display issues. Thanks to Yaroslav Berezovsky, henri.juntunen, rbstijl and Christine Mayeux for reporting them!
  • All versions: Label control's dimensions were not rounded when the label was tilted.
  • All versions: Multiline button labels are now properly centered even if the second label is longer than the first. thank you pswulius for reporting it!
  • All versions: Rounded Rectangle geometric shape looks better.
  • All versions: Right-aligned Tab Bars are now right-aligned properly. This also fixes this crazy bug reported by robert.wallerblad.
  • All versions: Added {color} macro support to the Tag Cloud control.
  • All versions: made straight arrows (and any other thin control) easier to grab and move.
  • Mockups for Desktop: fixed a few issues with incorrect "This file is read-only" warnings being shown.
  • Mockups for Desktop: fixed a few issues with renaming files by just changing the capitalization of some letters.
  • Mockups for Desktop: fixed "Pressing CTRL+S when Save Mockups dialog appears when 2 dirty files are unsaved only saves the focussed file" bug, reported by Nathaniel Revathi.
  • Mockups for Desktop: fixed an issue with showing UTF-8 file names.
  • Mockups for Confluence and JIRA: fixed an issue with local attachment images not being found when editing old mockups.
  • Mockups for Confluence and JIRA: made it possible for Marketplace trial customers to purchase the plugin from us directly.

  1. Thanks a lot for your work!

    I have a rather minor, unrelated nitpick: the Balsamiq Sans font is missing the capital eszett (ẞ) and the Indian rupee sign (₹). Could your team add these characters so they appear in the UI and be used? :)

  2. Thanks, Fitoschido. I’ll add those to the list.

  3. I just bought a license today. Will there be a public roadmap for Balsamiq? I’m interested if there are more prototyping features available in the future.

  4. Hi Hendrick! We don’t have a public roadmap yet but we’re working on one. As for prototyping features, don’t expect much more than what we have now. Here’s more on the subject: http://support.balsamiq.com/customer/portal/articles/98990

  5. Thanks for all the hard work. The bug fixes are going to solve quite a few issues for us.
