Retool v2.87 release notes

Source Control with GitLab

If your organization uses GitLab you can now take advantage of the features provided by our Source Control integration. Retool's Source Control enables branch-based editing on Retool applications. It allows organizations to manage changes using pull requests and syncs their applications across multiple instances of Retool. Follow our guide to setting up source control with GitLab to get started.

HTML component

We have introduced the new HTML Component so that you can quickly add custom HTML and sandboxed CSS to your apps. This component is perfect for use cases that require a little bit of custom UI without the full scripting capabilities that Custom Component provides.

Icon component

We have also introduced a standalone Icon component with over 3,400 icons to choose from! It supports alignment options, alt text for accessibility, and optional click event handlers.

Dynamically set the icon based on any state from your application to give helpful visual clues:

  • Fixed layout issues with dragging hidden components
  • Fixed an edge case where style editor colors would occasionally display incorrectly

  • Fixed an edge case in the options list editor where items would be duplicated in Manual mode

  • Fixed validation for icons configured via the options list editor in Mapped mode
  • Fixed the Date Time component so that it is not editable in readonly mode
  • Fixed the Form component so that it doesn't clear its fields if the submit event fails
