Backendless increased the limits on Cloud Code deployment size for the Cloud 9 and Cloud 99 plans. Now, developers can deploy more of their business logic and dependencies. The new limit for Cloud 9 is 20 MB and for Cloud 99 is 100 MB.
Backendless version 5.7.3 introduces generated columns, a new feature of the Backendless Database. Using this feature, you can declare a new type of column for which the database calculates the values based on a specified expression.
In January 2020, we introduced new spatial data types that will be replacing our existing geolocation features. This week, we released an update for our .NET SDK that will allow you to work with those new data types.
