Performance wins for Makeswift hosted sites

Recent improvements to `@makeswift/runtime` are now available for sites hosted with Makeswift. With this upgrade, our templates are consistently hitting 90+ in lighthouse. No action is needed — sit back and enjoy the performance bump.

improvements & fixes

  • In `0.7.0`, we started using `remotePatterns` which meant we unintentionally required Next.js `12.3.0`. This was fixed in `0.7.3` as we added backward compatibility for Next.js `12.2.0`
  • Updated CLI to use the latest version of Next.js
  • Added detailed tooltips about plan limits to the billing settings
  • Fixed a bug where global elements could be nested within themselves
  • Fixed image load failures that were occurring within Makeswift sites on Verizon LTE
  • Fixed a bug where fonts that started with a number were not loading
  • Fixed a bug where live page snippets were being run within the Makeswift builder
  • Fixed a bug where global element controls were no longer visible in interaction mode
  • Fixed some inconsistencies with text alignment being applied to `ol` and `ul` blocks
