Rappid 2.4 has arrived

Rappid 2.4 is now available and brings along some great updates, fixes, and cool new features. We're especially excited to release two completely new demos which demonstrate how to truly integrate Rappid with Angular and React.

"Although it's already been possible to integrate Angular and React with Rappid, many users didn't understand how to do it." says David Durman, CEO of client IO. "With these new demos, which are free to use and include source code, devs can easily explore the integration logic for use in their own solutions."

In addition to the demos we have improved many popular widgets with some great new features. It's definitely worth checking out!

You can download the update package from your Account portal. If you're not eligible for a free update you can purchase it through our online store or request a free 30 day trial to try it out.

Take a look at the main highlights here and the full changelog below.
