Hi again friends!
Today's release main feature is a major optimization to our skin assets and icons, which results in dramatic improvement in loading times for the web and plugin versions of Balsamiq Mockups.
See for yourself in this before and after video:
The back story is that as part of the work to provide a cleaner skin for Mockups we moved our assets out of a .fla file into separate PNG files. This had a nice side-effect of reducing our skin file size from 3.2Mb to 1.1Mb, just like that!
Other changes and improvements in this build:
Easy! Just install from our download page on top of your current installation. You won't have to re-register.
As always, if you hit any snags with the new build let us know immediately and we'll fix it right up! :)
For posterity, these are the version numbers of today's release:
On June 19th our little company turned three years old! We now have over 50k customers, sold over $6,600,000 of Mockups, and are lucky enough to be working with nine awesome people, doing what we love together. Who knows, maybe we even helped rid the world of a little bit of bad software, which is still our ultimate goal. Life's too short for bad software! :)
I don't usually dwell on things, but I'm letting myself be proud for 5 minutes today. Here's to 30 more years! :)
Thanks a lot, guys! You have made my life simpler and more fun, at least.
Love the group picture. Happiness is shining through :)
I love the way you guys share and hope to work in a company like balsamiq in the future
Thanks guys and congrats on the milestone!
