I) New updates on key extensions
1. Magezon Page Builder
1.1 Compatible with Graph QL
“GraphQL is a query language for APIs and a runtime for fulfilling those queries with your existing data. GraphQL provides a complete and understandable description of the data in your API, gives clients the power to ask for exactly what they need and nothing more, makes it easier to evolve APIs over time, and enables powerful developer tools.”

Magezon Page Builder is now updated to be compatible with Graph QL. In other words, it’s now able to communicate & work with other third-party extensions and platforms, easily.
1.2 Compatible with Magento 2.3.3
Magento has released the latest Magento 2.3.3 version on October 8th 2019 with over 170 functional fixes for the core products and more than 75 security enhancements. In order to keep the Magezon Page Builder up-to-date, we modernised it to be compatible perfectly with Magento 2.3.3.
2. Blue Form Builder
2.1 Auto populate form fields using Query Strings
In late October 2019, we updated a new function for Blue Form Builder: Auto populate form fields using Query Strings. Yet this helps save a lot of time for users while filling forms as well as enhance the conversion rates.
To get an overview about Query Strings and how to use it in Blue Form Builder, read this article.
2.2 Update Google reCaptcha from v2 to v3
Previously, we used Recaptcha v2 for the extension. Sometimes, it makes users feel annoyed as they need to tick a checkbox or do some challenges just to validate they are human.
For a general use site, v3 is a perfect choice as it minimizes the interruption of users.
3. Lazy Load
3.1 Error: Doesn’t work when going back or forth in browser history
We fixed a bug of Lazy Load: Doesn’t work on the previous or next pages when clicking on next/previous buttons on the top left corner of the browser.
3.2 Upgrade Lazy load library to latest version 1.7.10
The library of Lazy Load is now upgraded to the latest version 1.7.10 that helps speed up your site even better.
