Revelation Software has now completed the beta phase of the 9.3.2 release and the commercial release is now available for download from the WORKS area on www.revelation.com. If you are a WORKS member you can get the upgrade files in the usual way. If not, please contact m and I’ll discuss how you can get onto the WORKS program for all OpenInsight upgrades, support, etc.
This new release includes enhancements to OpenInsight for the Web (O4W v1.4) and the new Multivalue Base Filing System (MVBFS).
O4W v1.4 includes enhanced OECGI3P.PHP to provide better performance in fast cgi situations, initial deployment of new engine server functionality, added “pattern validation” in the form designer, provided a “READY” event for forms and reports, added the ability to use repository entities for template and css, and O4W Mobile enhancements.
The MVBFS is Revelation Software’s single code base for the dedicated data connectors that enable the company to support disparate database technologies within the OpenInsight environment. The MultiValue connectors for Universe, Unidata, D3, mvBase and OpenQM have been combined into a single code set which is named MVBFS. This new base filing system supports rti_readu, rti_writeu, and rti_writerelease functions to allow developers to interact with MultiValue servers in a more traditional MultiValue style. Transaction logging support has also been incorporated with the rti_transaction subroutine.
“Over this past year I have travelled to multiple continents to listen to what our resellers want from our OpenInsight Development Suite”, said Mike Ruane, President/CEO Revelation Software, “This release includes many of the ideas and suggestions requested by our VAR community throughout the world.”
Also included in the OI 9.3.2 are a number of patches and enhancements for the Banded Report Writer, RevelationDotNet, OIPI.Net/OIPI, SQL Connector, Editor ++/Basic+ and RDK.
“The response from the MultiValue community regarding our database design tools has been exceptionally positive”, said Robert Catalano, Director of Sales, Revelation Software. “With a single code set we are now positioned to deliver more features and functionality to all the MultiValue platforms we support.”
I would personally like to thank all of the beta testers who took the time to road test the new version prior to release and to report back their findings. With your invaluable real-world help, you will have helped to make this another successful OpenInsight release.
