Browserboard Update: Sharing Options and Heaps of Bug Fixes
New sharing options
It's now possible to give different people different permissions on your boards, even on anonymous whiteboards created without user accounts. Simply click the “Copy” button under View, Contribute, or Owner.
The old board sharing options are gone. Not that anyone will notice—they weren't very useful.
Image export affordances
This week, a user discovered that when a board is really big, the browser freezes when trying to export it. So I ran some tests and found that most browsers have a threshold at 16,384 (2^14) pixels where they become really slow.
Rather than add a hard limit, I decided to just show the user the dimensions of the output image, and add a warning when it's too big. I also added a progress bar so you can see how long it's going to take.
Heaps of bug fixes
To communicate the ever-changing nature of Browserboard, I added a little “beta” label next to the logo in the top navigation bar.
That's all for this week. Thanks for reading!
