General improvements and fixes

Displaying actions in the tree and in breadcrumbs

WordPress, Components and Interactions actions are now displayed more prominently in the tree (directly after the tag or element name). This makes them more visible in complex layouts. Before this update, they were shown at the end.

Actions are now also shown in selected element breadcrumbs in the bottom status bar:

Button type

Setting the plain HTML button type in Properties panel is finally fixed.

Adding local webfonts in Design panel

Design panel makes it easy to use local web fonts that are stored on your computer. Before this update, adding fonts from within the current project folder failed.

Tailwind CSS

Built-in compiler with plugins

The built-in Tailwind CSS 3 compiler now comes bundled with plugins: typography, forms, lineclamp and aspectratio. Their utility classes are not implemented in visual controls yet, but you can use them with Assign classes tool or in the code.

If you need more flexibility with Tailwind CSS customization you can use external build process with Pinegrow.


Reorder Block Attributes and other fields

Block Attributes, Post Fields and Customizer Fields can now be easily reordered:

Block Attributes Color control on WordPress 5.9

WordPress 5.9 introduced a breaking change in the ColorPicker control. As a result of that, selecting the color on Block Attributes with the control type color didn’t work anymore during editing (the blocks displayed correctly on the front-end).

We updated the generated code so that it works with 5.9 and previous versions. To apply the change you have to re-export the affected themes and plugins.


Using class, attribute and style attributes on the main element in dynamic blocks

Block Attributes for classes, attributes and styles can be now used on the main block element (the element that has the Block action) on both dynamic and regular blocks. Before, this only worked on regular blocks.

Correctly escaping default inline SVG values

Inline SVGs that contain single quotes are now correctly escaped when used as default values in generated PHP code for blocks.

Performance optimization and stability

Quicker insert code

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

Crash dump observer

In some situations NWJS (the technology we use to package Pinegrow into a desktop application) generates large number of crash dump files. Unfortunately, we are unable to disable this behavior completely. As a workaround we added a feature called Dump observer that watches the crash dump folder and displays a notice in case it detects many files being created there.

If that happens, check the mentioned folder and if files continue to be created, save any changes and restart Pinegrow. You should also delete all the .dmp files in that folder.
