Studio Release 131 | Feb 16, 2022


Another large release shipping a few key features and a ton of small fixes.

Shopify Free Plan

We’re now putting all new Shopify accounts on a free plan. This is a temporary change until we introduce multiple Shopify plans in Q2 of 2022.

Collapsing Product Descriptions

Stores often pack product descriptions with content that’s valuable for SEO. When rendered inside of our product component that text spills down the page creating an odd unbalanced view.

In this release, we rolled out a change that hides the text behind a “Read more” link if it is longer than 5 lines.

Read More LInk

Resize-only for media

We’ve had a number of issues with image optimization being too aggressive so we’ve changed the default when adding media to Resize only.

Media Resizing

Deleting users & accounts

We added functionality for our internal teams to be able to permanently delete users and accounts from our database. In the past we haven't had a good way of handling this and previous requests took longer to resolve than we'd like.

JSX Rendering Backend

We shipped the next phase of the prep work needed to support Component Properties. When we rolled out refactor NoML to be more like JSX we added a translation layer to translate from the new syntax into the old. This allowed us to use to avoid rewriting the rendering layer. In this release we rewrote the rendering layer so it’s no longer using the old syntax.
