Following our recent announcement of the release of OpenInsight 10.0.7, Elkie Holland from Prospectus IT Recruitment recently caught up with Mike Ruane to talk about this new release.

The new version includes many customer requested features and enhancements for both OpenInsight developers and MultiValue developers more widely.

OpenInsight 10.0.7 now available.

As many of you will know, I have been internally testing OpenInsight 10.0.7 for the last week or so and I have been really pleased with the new version.

With more and more people now actively working with OI 10, this release includes a lot of customer requested fixes and enhancements.

It goes without saying that OpenInsight 10 has been a massive undertaking with the ‘whole’ product having been reviewed, modernised and made so (Ohh sooo) much easier to use.  The benefits of using OI10 over OI9 and 8 are way too many to even consider touching on here but I believe that the product is now at a point when all OpenInsight developers should be considering running their applications through the conversion tool.

If you are a current OpenInsight WORKS subscriber, you can get access to both the 10.0.7 upgrade and full install from the private WORKS area on www.revelation.com.

For now, I’m off to try a brand new module in O4W which Bryan worked on for a project that I have been working on for a few months.  My development learning curve continues at a pace 🙂

Sorry


PropertyGrid2Someone asked me a couple of days ago, why I have been so quiet on the blog, etc.  The truth is, that I have been heads down for the last few months building a new system for a client.

This system is taking all of my time (including a lot of my personal time) and finding time to update the blog has come second place.  No excuses, that is just the way that it is.  So mixed with OI development, photography gigs and sleep, there has been little time for anything else.

That said the project is coming along well and I continue to be amazed at what a junior application developer can achieve with OpenInsight 10.  Yes, I continue to make mistakes but I continue along the learning curve and things are definitely getting easier and quicker.

A fun week playing with the Internal 10.0.7 pre-release.

Just this week, I was given access to the internal 10.0.7 pre-release.  The subsequent testing had me find a small bug and yes, I did do something unexpected, and yes, I am that monkey and if you give me a nice shiny new gun, well, I ‘will’ shoot myself.  Anyway, this has given me with a few minutes to take a step back and catch up with the blog and other things.

However, despite the bug (which has already been diagnosed and fixed) 10.0.7 looks to be another big step forward and it is definitely getting to the point (in my opinion, it’s there now) where existing OpenInsight , ARev and MV developers more widely should be taking a close look at using OI10 modernise their development and their systems.
