Post Image

I hope you registered for the upcoming LTS lecture, last week there were close to 1000 developers registered! Sometimes the most important features we can add are really simple things that we just procrastinated on forever. Case in point: multi-line labels. For years we have been explaining to people over and over again: "Just use TextArea and in...
