Working toward the 1.0 release of Baserow was mainly related to small changes and bug fixes which resulted in a stable new release of Baserow. By providing us with your feature requests, we have been able to create a roadmap for 2021 based on popularity. Thank you for filling out the survey.
To improve the self hosting experience we have created a Baserow Cloudron app which makes it easy to install Baserow on your Cloudron server. If you are not already familiar with them, I recommend checking out their amazing tool. The Baserow app has not yet been included in their App Store but you can follow these instructions to try out Baserow on Cloudron.
After the real time collaboration release of last month, the infrastructure dependencies are not going to change that much compared to the releases before. That means that we can finally focus on improving the self hosting experience. We want to support more platforms like Cloudron, for example the Digital Ocean marketplace, Heroku one-click to deploy, YunoHost and other platforms that make it easy to self host.
In some cases, the original sidebar was not always that useful. Specifically, the switching between groups and the big blue sidebar were not ideal. We have designed and implemented a cleaner and calmer sidebar that allows for additional menu items and improved switching between groups.
Many have filled out the typeform survey related to the new features. That is much appreciated! Based on the data everyone provided, we have created new roadmap that can be viewed on the homepage. We were surprised to learn that searching in a table is was requested the most by far. This feature is relatively easy to implement, but we were unaware of its popularity. Below you will find a small table with the survey results. The percentages don't sum to 100% because everyone was allowed to choose three features.
|43.2.8%||Searching in table||March|
|39.8%||Exporting to CSV, Excel, XML and JSON||May|
|31.8%||Importing Excel, XML and JSON||May|
|29.5%||Undo and redo||August|
|20.5%||Public view sharing||November|
|13.6%||Admin dashboard to manage all users and groups||April|
All the changes of version 1.0 listed.
The latest 1.1 update contains some long anticipated features like the search, reordering of fields, huge speed improvement and the ability to install templates.
