Not too much time after, Google decide to abandoned the development of AngularJS, move on to a new "Angular", completely incompatible with AngularJS. You can imagine our pocker face: as beloved users of Microsoft Windows, one of the things that we love of this operating system, is the capability to maintain the compatibility: you can run a well developed MS-DOS program in Windows 11 without any pain, and, this is an absolutely benefit for the Windows users, we think. Don't you agree? Note that MS-DOS was launch in 1981, near to 41 years ago!
Almost ending 2019 we decide to move on and write from scratch the current generation of DecSoft App Builder. We know (and understand) that not all our customers understand why we move on, but, we want the best for our customers, and, therefore we don't want that the DecSoft App Builder generated apps using the abandoned AngularJS framework. In fact AngularJS works well today, and, we continue maintaining the previous generation of DecSoft App Builder specially for some customers and their apps, so, why invest the work and the time that we dedicated to the new generation of DecSoft App Builder?
Today, October 21st 2022, we are happy to announce another great step in our DecSoft App Builder and therefore for the apps which you can create with this product. Today we release a new version of the product, which start to use the latest version of the branch 3.x of the VueJS framework. And, after a hard work, we do it maintaining the compatibility with the previous release of the product, that is, you can simply compile your app again and you will get the benefits of the very latest version of VueJS 3.x. Your apps will be even faster (and believe me, VueJS 2.x is fast!) and with all the benefits that the branch 3.x of VueJS can offer to us.
Why so many efforts? We told you! Because we want all the best for you! In fact your DecSoft App Builder apps will use the very latest releases of all the third party code which are included: the lastest VueJS, but also the latest Bootstrap CSS, the latest jQuery, the latest Font Awesome and the same for all the other third party code that DecSoft App Builder provided to you and your apps. So today is a happy day to us, because, finally and after a hard work, we can offer to you the very best that we can do developing DecSoft App Builder!

I think it is a great achievement you have made here! I have tested similar products the past year in order to find an app tool that could extend our offer, which is embedded industrial automation systems. Our customer often needs an very custom app for their needs and I found DecSoft App Builder as a good platform for this so far. First we will create an app that will act as a remote control of our server based core product. We will use WebSocket control for communication and then a custom plugin for local event notifications. Also the Report control will be used for arbitrary JSON payloads sent via WS back to app. All of this is verified to work in webapp + android so far.
