TMS WEB Core for Visual Studio Code v1.8.5 is here!

A new week and a new milestone with the TMS team. We have released today a major update for TMS WEB Core for Visual Studio Code.
The big new feature in this new release is that from now on, there is support for frames in TMS WEB Core for Visual Studio Code. This not only brings the compatibility between TMS WEB Core for Delphi & TMS WEB Core for Visual Studio Code to a higher level, but of course brings the advantages of using frames to your web client development experience on TMS WEB Core for Visual Studio Code running on Windows, macOS and Linux.

Frames support

With frames, you can significantly enhance your productivity for creating web client applications. Frames not only reduce repeating the same form logic within a project but can also be shared among different projects.
