Release-plan for Html5 editor (updated)

February 10, 2014 daniel.jacobsson

BannerFlow HTML5 editor - Banner Builder Preview

The HTML5 banner editor has been released and running as a Beta version for a few months now. We have been able to gather a lot of valuable and much appreciated feedback. With that input in mind we have compiled a road-map for the upcoming months that can be found later in this post. Our goal is to be able to get rid of the Beta label end of April.

In the end of February we are releasing a major update addressing the editor’s and showcases’ load-time. With this update we also get a stable platform on which we can smoothly roll out additional features and continuous improvements to the Html5 editor.
