Hot! What’s New in Apollo?

  • Sharebar

Apollo, one of the emerging online project management tools, available to subscribed Apollo carousel-ss1-transusers over the cloud, has been working recently on some of the back end parts to the system that will, the team hopes, will see some front end benefit for its growing band of users.

The changes they are introducing include a major update to one of the key Javascript libraries that they are using. These libraries give developers access to pre-written pieces of functionality that they can use in developing Apollo further. As with upgrading software applications to bring in new improvements, upgrading development libraries can see the introduction of improved performance by carrying out back end processes in a quicker and more efficient way.  The team at Apollo rightly points out that there is a mountain of code involved in the application so upgrading the library is not simply a case of slotting the new one in place and testing it – a good deal of detailed and manual work within the code is needed to make sure that the new library integrates correctly.

So what will the user see as a result of this Javascript library upgrade?  The change will be the introduction of support for Internet Explorer 9, which is coming in response to a number of user feedback requests.  Also evident to users will be some improved features around the upload of files.  Perhaps more importantly, though, the upgrade to the new library will make the code behind Apollo more durable, ongoing.
