Revelation have made some good progress with the OpenInsight 10 Alpha and I’m currently working through my bug list and closing a nice number of reported issues from earlier alphas, something that I’ll continue with over the weekend.
In line with their open and transparent policy for OpenInsight 10, they Alpha v7 is now available for download to all Works Members.
The Alpha v7 is available as a full install. So, if you have worked with earlier alpha’s please use the AppBackup facility to backup your old alpha work and restore it into the new alpha. This is what I do but one word of warning. If you keep your data, images and other supporting files in a specific folder (I keep things in C:\RevSoft10.6\MDPmyApp) you’ll need to copy that folder from the earlier alpha and into the new alpha once installed. The app restore will then use the new folder and the restore should run just fine.
This version includes many enhancements to the IDE, Form Designer, Table Builder and O4W, so it is well worth a look and to take the opportunity to report any issues that you find to Revelation and have those issue addressed before Revelation releases the beta.
OpenInsight for Web (O4W) v2.0, included in the OpenInsight 10 Alpha v7, is a rapid application development tool that lets you generate responsive forms, reports, and dashboards. Use the powerful GUI drag-and-drop to lay out your forms and then test in both desktop and mobile browser mode. Or use the toolset’s full-function API to create the most sophisticated web pages.
Alpha v7 is set to expire on April 4, 2017.
