An important date for your diary.


Bob at the 2015 Conference.

Mark your calendars! On Thursday, June 7, 2018 11 am PT / 2 pm ET Revelation Software in conjunction with DBTA will be hosting a webinar on “An Introduction to the Features and Benefits of OpenInsight 10”.

In April, 2018, Revelation Software proudly announced the official release of OpenInsight Development Suite (OI) 10.0. OI 10 has been re-engineered for 64-bit in this new release. We have rewritten nearly every bit of code in the product, from the interface with the user, to the reporting tools, and the speed of the indexing routines. OI 10 provides the following new and/or improved components:

  • New IDE – OpenInsight 10 includes a brand new IDE, visually similar to modern application development tools, yet still designed for the MultiValue developer. Each of the product’s designers, for forms, tables, reports and all others are now contained into a single, cohesive workspace.
  • Arev64 – The next generation of our Advanced Revelation emulator, utilizing the full power and capabilities of modern 64-bit architectures.
  • User and Data Security – With increased concerns about security and privacy, including upcoming GDPR requirements, a number of enhancements and changes have been made to strengthen data security.
  • Management Console – The OpenInsight Management Console is a browser-based database management tool for system administrators.
  • Git Integration – OpenInsight’s repository based environment is integrated to the Git source code management system.
  • Universal Driver 5.1 – 64-bit and VSS capability.

In this webinar Mike, Bob and Bryan will provide an overview of the new features and benefits of OpenInsight 10.

SRP OI10 Conference Update II


OI10whiteSRP have just published their second blog article which follows up on the recent Revelation Conference in Houston, USA.  This posting looks at the brand new IDE and it gives a nice report of one of the tools that will be of the most interest to all OpenInsight developers.

OI 9.3 Beta – IDE


Boy yesterday was busy and for that reason today’s look at the OpenInsight 9.3 beta readme will be a short one.

The IDE has not been forgotten in the new release and it sees three small modifications.  There have been two changes to accommodate O4W and they include a tab for mobile on the O4W Configuration Screen and a new O4W Plugin configuration form has been created to define or modify jQuery plugins that are used by O4W.

In addition, the IDE itself has been enhanced so that tools launched from the new IDE will no longer be owned by the IDE.   This will enable the IDE to be minimised without the tools themselves being minimised.  This also allows for the use of ALT+TAB to navigate through the open windows.

The 9.3 beta readme includes more details about the above items and the remaining items that I have not noted above.  In addition, it also includes many of the new features, enhancements and fixes throughout the 9.x releases.  Please drop me a line if you would like to receive a copy of the full 9.3 beta readme file.
