Resource and State Connections now automatically get the colour formatting from their Colour Coding settings, i.e. when a connection is Colour Coded to Blue or Green, it will automatically get a Blue or Green shading
Clear client browser cache automatically after app update. No more need to hard refresh your Chrome tab.
Connecting multiple consecutive State Connection inputs on a Register now default labels them a, b, c, not a, a, a

Rework the File thumbnail generation and fixed the aspect ratio. Make any change on an older file to get a shiny new thumbnail in your diagram gallery.
Various UI small improvements
Label placement issues during repositioning. This is a pretty old, small and frustrating bug that we've been struggling with. Please let us know if it still causes trouble.

Multiple Runs is a power feature that allows you to simulate hundreds of Quick Runs to get statistical insight on how your systems play out. The vast majority of game systems have random elements for emergence; so every single play session is going to be different
Quick Run client-server performance and Run buttons responsiveness during execution;
Diagram execution speed and performance
Changes for Time Step Interval and Time Steps Limits
Labels editing for nodes and groups
Chart navigation through different Runs history
Diagram execution with smaller than 1s time interval, eg: connections blink
Parameter changes in the Properties panel
Connection Label editing
Save Chart properties across sessions
Register value activator
Manipulate zero length connections
Autosave and orchestrator rebuild on changes in the Properties panel
Ignore Pull from Gate, previously causing freezes @Nick - Alleyway Games
Deny multiple request on Open
Register with incoming Activator not working properly
Chart history - you can now compare Run iteration outcomes on the same Chart. Use the << >> to navigate through your executions, ie: Run diagram and plot the values of a Pool, then Stop, change a parameter and Run again to notice the differences. The same for Quick Run executions. NOTE that for now you should keep your Time Steps Limit ideally lower than 100 for best performance. While you will get results in the range of hundreds, you will notice slow responsiveness. While still to be improved, this feature is one big step forward towards Multiple Runs (Monte Carlo)
Reopen last edited diagram - straightforward and useful
Live Support widget in the bottom right that you can use straight from the app.
Percentage label modifiers - now show up as % instead of decimal values, ie: State Connection with a +20% Label pointing towards a Resource Connection Label value of 10 will display 10+20% @Jordan
Colour coded state connections - you can now use Colour Coding on State Connections, ie: only specific coloured resource within a Pool will influence feedback loops
Resource and State Connections - line manipulation and drawing improvements
Moving Groups - fixes with multiple selections
File Handling: complex diagrams would previously cause a "Drawing is too large" error and freeze. We've improved our client-server communication and this shouldn't happen anymore, regardless of diagram size. If you do manage to freeze it, please let us know how many elements and connections on it, or send us a screenshot
Quick Run: now runs more responsive, also fixed some situations where Quick Run would result in a halt at "0" steps @João Castro. There's still a performance issue when running Quick Run with the Chart open. Working on it. As a quick fix, we've down graded the default Quick Run Steps limit to 100 (previously 1000). This will not be updated on old diagrams, so if you run into performance freeze, please downscale the number of Quick Run Steps you're simulating. NOTE: it's best practice to have a diagram End Condition when using Quick Run, to avoid infinite loops on the server, thanks!
Chart: overall chart animation running more smoothly
Gate with colour coded outputs now working as intended, so you can use a Gate to sort resources by type @Christoph
The Pool modified by a Register value not updating status on State Connections outputs @Jordan
Autosave causing text deletion during label edit
Queue as conditional activator, now you can use State Connection feedbacks to create buffers, ie: Source active while Queue <10
File list filtering on Open file menu
Label placement improvements. Still a few glitches here, but we're catching up with them
AutoSave - exactly what you would expect, working diagrams get auto saved every 10s or 10 actions. This is a big step towards Machinations becoming a full-feature webapp, with Version History, Live Collaboration, etc. Right now, it solves the great risk of losing unsaved work, which is a critical priority for us.
Multi-Waypoint Connector Drawing - Resource and State Connections can now be placed with multiple inflexions, by point and click. This is a legacy feature from Machinations desktop, that some of our users requested and we felt it would do a better job at connecting nodes on a crowded diagram.
Menu shortcut: File -> New From Template. More templates to be added today.
Various small improvements.
“all” Label on Resource Connections - now works as intended, “all” moves all resources available from the source node to destination.
Improved loading time - server routines for faster client responsiveness.
Diagrams with groups in them sometimes not saving properly.
Server connectivity issues and various small fixes.
