Ignition 8.0.6: New Perspective Feature Upgrades and More Flexible HTTP Requests Paul Scott Wed, 11/13/2019 - 10:43
In Ignition 8.0.6, we’ve added several community-requested features to Perspective, including a component that we’ve ported over from the Vision Module. In this blog post, we’ll explain those new Perspective features and look into a new way to make HTTP requests.

Ignition 8.0.4: Built-In Historian for Gateways, Perspective Map and Scripting Updates Paul Scott Mon, 09/16/2019 - 11:43

Ignition 8.0.3: Time Series Charts, Security Certificate Web Interface, and so Much More Paul Scott Thu, 08/08/2019 - 12:00
The Software Engineering team has been hard at work delivering another feature-packed release, and in my opinion, they’ve outdone themselves this time. Version 8.0.3 contains well over 150 changes! It’s difficult to convey the amount of content in this release without turning this blog post into a novel, so we’ll start with focusing on some of the biggest, most noteworthy updates.
Ignition 8.0.2: Improving Perspective with Translations, Security Helpers & More Paul Scott Wed, 06/05/2019 - 13:31
Ignition 8 is still fresh out of the gate, but the Software Engineering team has been hard at work on adding various improvements. This update features well over 100 features and bug fixes mostly focused on the Ignition platform and the Ignition Perspective Module. Longtime users may have noticed that Perspective doesn’t have quite the feature set that the Vision Module does; the Vision Module has been developed and improved upon for over 10 years. Because of this disparity, these updates introduce a number of new Perspective enhancements, several of which are inspired by features in Vision.
