Subscription protocol auto-detection

Auto-detection can save you from a headache when it comes to the following questions:

  • Which subscription protocol is supported by server XYZ?
  • Which subscription protocol prefers server XYZ?

The new auto-detection is enabled by default. If you prefer a particular subscription protocol, you can change it in the Connection Settings dialog.

Subscription protocol

Banana Cake Pop supports the following subscription protocols.

Supported subscription protocols

Workspace auto synchronization

Your local and remote workspace changes will be synchronized every 60 seconds automatically. No need for you to click the synchronize button anymore. The new synchronize button is now located in the status bar and is also an indicator, showing you whether a workspace is synchronizing.

Workspace auto synchronization

Status bar

The new decent status bar shows you a couple of information. For instance, is my browser connected to a network, or with what account am I signed in?

Network status and username

The status bar can also contain context-related information. For instance, is the schema of my current document up to date?

Schema status

Furthermore, we introduced a new button in the right corner that shows the current version of Banana Cake Pop when clicking it.

Version info

Hidden Tabs

We introduced a new button that appears when a tab is at least partly hidden. This button, when clicked, will show a menu with partly hidden and completely hidden tabs.
