Avoid crashes when dragging CSS Grid handles for SASS projects

Fixed the issue with dragging CSS grid handles causing Pinegrow to hang when using complex SASS projects. The fix has the potential to improve the stability of Pinegrow SASS in general. This fix is experimental, please let us know how it works for you or if you run into any problems. Issue was reported on the forum.

Performance optimizations

The function that is parsing code in Library panel Insert code (and also used elsewhere) was doing too many unneccessary DOM lookups.

6.21.2 – Dec 9, 2021

Fix previewing files with partials

Previewing a document with partials in the browser made the element dynamic.

Fix PUG link in the Library panel

Jade was renamed to Pug a while ago. The link was updated to the tags Pug page. Reported on this forum thread.

6.21.1 – Dec 1, 2021

Welcome to the first Pinegrow Live update!

Don’t yet have Pinegrow Live? Get it here.

Performance optimizations

Release 6.2 was noticebly slower than previous versions. The cause was updating to a newer NWJS build. It appears that newer versions of Chromium are more sensitive to DOM updates done in non-optimal way. This is forcing us to dig under the hood and fix code that caused unneccessary layout and style recalculation in the browser. So, it’s not all bad 🙂 Our tests show that Pinegrow is now noticably faster (at least compared to 6.2). Let us know how it goes for you. More to come.

Fixed WordPress post field as background image

The bug was reported on the forum and is now fixed.

Broken links checker

We forgot to tell you about this new handy tool in 6.21 release notes. Select Page -> Check for broken links to open the link checker. The tool will check both local and remote links on the selected page and notify you if any links are broken.

Runaway process

Sometimes a process called nwjs helper (Renderer) is left after Pinegrow quits and it consumes CPU and memory. This appears to be a NWJS issue and we can not fix it directly. In this update we added a code that explicitly terminates the process on Pinegrow exit. Please let us know if this has any positive impact.

WordPress adds rel=”noopener” when target in blocks is set to _blank

In reponse to this forum post. I’m not that keen on adding a magic behavior (something that happens without direct instruction by the user) to the code generated by Pinegrow. In this case, this made sense. So, Pinegrow will automatically add rel=”noopener” to block links if the rel is not set already and if target is set to _blank.
