7.12.0 Bixby Developer Studio Release Notes

Updated: Feb 27, 2020

Welcome to v7.12.0, the 20C release of Bixby Developer Studio. This release introduces split screens for the editor, search and replace for all files in a capsule, and several bug fixes.

Split Editor Screens

We've introduced a way to view and edit the content of more than one file at a time. Now, in addition to the traditional single editor layout, you can choose from layouts that include 2 columns, 2 rows, or a grid of 4 editor areas. Move file tabs from one editor area to another by dragging the file tab into the destination area. Or you can click on an empty editor area before opening a file to have it opened there.


Search and Replace

All files in a capsule can now be searched to find and replace text. This should help with finding keywords or console.log statements.

7.11.0 Bixby Developer Studio Release Notes

Updated: Feb 12, 2020

Welcome to v7.11.0, the 20B release of Bixby Developer Studio. This release introduces a new tab for Release Notes in the editor, improvements to Simulator and Stories, and several bug fixes.

Release Notes Tab

We've introduced a Release Notes tab in the editor. The links to the release notes can be found in the Welcome tab.

Where to find a release notes tab

Release notes tab

The release notes tab will automatically open when you start Bixby Developer Studio with a new version, unless it is a fresh install.

Simulator and Stories Updates

The Simulator now tracks deleted steps.

Until now, you could not use the Export Story button in the Simulator to export deleted steps. As a result, you couldn't create stories that involve transactions. Now you can export stories, and every step is included in the story, even those that are deleted during the process.

Example for Deleted Steps

Here's what the new export story flow looks like when you use the shirt sample capsule to select a shirt, select a size, and buy the shirt:

We've updated the keyboard shortcuts to toggle the sidebar and the panel.
