Dear nuBuilders,

We are excited to announce today that we are releasing nuBuilder Forte 4.5.
In the last few weeks, we have been tirelessly working to improve nuBuilder and we believe that nuBuilder will help you enjoy building great applications even more. We would like to take this opportunity to thank all those who contributed and helped with testing.

Aside from speed optimisations, general improvements and bug fixes, nuBuilder has been slightly redesigned to improve the usability and a few new features have also been added.

Some highlights:

- Take notes using the integrated WYSIWYG editor
- The new "Codes Snippets" helps you organise your own code snippets collection and have quick access to it
- Basic Implementation of 2FA
- Use global Hash Cookies
- New fields in the "User" Form like Team, Department, Position, Account expiry date etc.
- Use the "Cloner" to duplicate any form or to transfer a form and its subforms to another database.
- View the active sessions
- View and Manage all Objects and Access Levels directly within the Form Properties
- Display the logged in users
- Fast access to frequently used functions
- Activate various options in nuconfig.php
- Update wizard
- Test your email settings
- PHP 8 compatibility
- Versioning added

We are going to document and present the new features in the coming days and weeks.
