RevUK Closed for Easter Weekend


Please be advised that Revelation Software UK will be closed on Friday 18th and Monday 21st April 2014 for the Easter bank holiday weekend.

I will personally be watching my email over the weekend (from time to time) and I would request that you drop me an email for anything urgent.  However, not being technical, I will not be able to assist quickly for any technical issues, but I will do what I can.

Presentations – OI 10’s CBBFS, OAM & GIT


As you will no doubt be aware by now, some of the highlights of the forthcoming OpenInsight 10 release include the Cloud Based Base Filing System (CBBFS) that will initially support Couchbase in the cloud, support for GIT, and OpenInsight’s new Authorisation Module (OAM). Mike covered all of these new technologies in detail during his Australia and New Zealand road trip and we will have to wait until September to see these new technologies in action here in London.

However, for those of you who cannot wait and who need just a little more information, Mike has kindly let me have his presentations to share with you. These include slides that touch on what the technologies are, what they do for OpenInsight developers and how they work in OpenInsight. The presentations include a number of screenshots and then Mike went into live demos of the technologies.

We cannot replicate those demos in the presentations, so please drop me an email to reserve your place on the EMEA RUG in London on the 23rd of September to learn more and to request a copy of the presentations, which I will email to you by return of email (or as soon as possible).

RevUK 2014 RUG & Aus and NZ Wrapup


Mike’s recent visit to Australia and New Zealand has really raised the OpenInsight 10 profile and some of the amazing things that Revelation will be delivering within that new version early in 2015.  He’ll be over here in London for the EMEA region’s leg of his world tour this year, so please put Tuesday 23rd September in your diary today.

Mike will be at the Hilton Doubletree hotel in Ealing, London on the 23rd September to headline our next Revelation User Group (RUG) meeting.  He’ll be talking about all the good things in OI 10, updating us on where the company is at that time and further plans for the future – the usual popular agenda.  But, it will be OI10 that will steal the show and I’m also hoping to have Carl Pates at the RUG to talk about his work on the OI 10 presentation layer, which is seeing some huge, dramatic and quite wonderful changes.

Please drop me an email to register your interest for the RevUK RUG on the 23rd September.

Mike will be flying into London on the Monday and he’ll be free to visit people on the Wednesday, Thursday and Friday morning if not too far from London.  I already have some meeting pencilled in, so please get in touch as quickly as possible if you wish Mike to address your development team whilst over here and to discuss business matters with your management team and your future requirements from OI.

For those of you that cannot wait to learn more about the new release and the highlights of what Mike was saying whilst in Australia and New Zealand recently, please checkout the trips wrap here.

FS133 or SSP248 errors


We have recently received a small number of support queries regarding errors on Windows 7 workstations while using Windows Server 2008. These errors appear with an error message FS133 or SSP245 when doing a COPY_TABLE.

Revelation are aware of this issue and they have published a Knowledge Base article which explains this in much more detail how to address the error messages: http://o4w.revelation.com/o4wtrs/KB_Articles/KB0286.htm
