Dear Community,

During the last weeks, we have been working on restructuring the 
ft_databrowser. We mainly intended to keep the code clearer for 
debugging purposes but also optimized efficiency of the code. Should you 
experience any problems with the new implementation, please let us know 
asap. Just in case: the old implementation will still be distributed as 

Additionally, we decided to stop developing ft_componentbrowser, because 
ft_databrowser has the same functionality. If you want to look at your 
components, you should call now:
cfg.viewmode = 'component';
cfg.layout = 'XXX.lay';
ft_databrowser(cfg, data);

In case you experience problems with the component viewmode, you can 
still go back to the old componentbrowser by calling 
ft_componentbrowser_old. However, for both databrowser_old and 
componentbrowser_old, we will discontinue support and delete these 
functions in future release, if the new implementation proofs to be stable.

With best regards, on behalf of the FT team,

PS: If you have never heard of the databrowser and have no clue what the 
databrowser is good for, please try it out. See also:
