SWAG Database updated again to v0.3 beta.
The online SWAG Pascal Database viewer application has been updated once more. This new release, v0.3 beta, adds support for caching snippets to reduce the number of round trips to the web service that are required. The first time you access a snippet it is fetched from the web service. Selecting the same snippet again will fetch it from the local cache, subject to the cache not being full. This release also fixes a nasty bug that was slowing down loading snippets etc from the web service once a few tens of snippets had been selected. The app's JavaScript code is now compatible with JSLint.
