Not long ago, we started introducing a monthly release cycle which will provide you with a summarized overview of all latest features and changes, including a comprehensive change log.

Important: you will still be able to download our individual Vizlib extensions in the usual way as and when they are released, outside of the Vizlib Library release cycle.

Qlik Sense September 2018 compatible with Vizlib August 2018

Qlik Sense will release its September 2018 release in the coming month. As Qlik Technology Partner we have access to the beta version and we're happy to share our Vizlib August 2018 Release to be fully compatible with the new version of Qlik Sense, way ahead of its official release. Enjoy responsibly! :)

Focus on performance improvements and bug fixes

In parallel to working on our upcoming Vizlib KPI Designer extension (to be released first week of September), we were mostly focused on improving performance and stability of existing extensions and features in the Vizlib Library. As such, both the Vizlib Bar Chart and the Vizlib Filter have had updates with numerous bug fixes and performance improvements with up to 30%.
