The latest news from the Fyne community

A fresh new look, richer text and cloud integration delivers Christmas cheer!

Dec 24, 2022

Whatever you celebrate at this time of year we hope you will enjoy this exciting, shiny new look release of the Fyne toolkit. With a refined design, cloud integration, images in rich text and a new text handling engine there is a lot to love in Fyne v2.3.0.

New Look

We have refined the visual design of Fyne in this release to give a better initial experience for app users. You can see the new design shown below in the fyne_demo app.

Fyne Theme in 2.3

Cloud integration

You can now easily add cloud storage to any Fyne app through the App.Preferences() and App.Storage() abstractions. This change will be completely transparent to the rest of your app, and is as simple as calling App.SetCloudProvider().

There is a lot more information from the cloud sync presentation at Fyne Conf 2022.

The main list of additions and changes is shown below. To see the complete list including bug fixes see the GitHub release page.
