OpenInsight 9.3.1 Now Available!

Overnight the OpenInsight 9.3.1 upgrade was posted to the WORKS area for all WORKS members to download.  Please contact me if you are not a WORKS member and wish to find out more about this great release.

This latest version includes O4W Mobile Extensions and a brand new data connector for Ladybridge’s OpenQM Multivalue database.

  • OpenInsight for Web (O4W v1.3) – This latest version of O4W includes additional integration with the new Banded Report Writer, new support routines for RSS feeds and a brand new ‘ad hoc’ report builder.  In addition, the release includes a number of additional mobile enhancements such as a mobile specific menu and report output.  Through O4W’s integration with jQuery Mobile (the companion library to O4W’s jQuery), web pages can be created using “finger friendly” user interface elements and design.
  • OpenInsight for QM Data Connector (OI4QM) – The OI4QM data connector enables MultiValue application developers to fully utilise the QM database from Ladybridge Systems Limited.  Using this dedicated data connector, Windows GUI and Web 2.0 interfaces can be quickly created without any change being required to an existing QM database.

“With this latest release, we’re proving our commitment to our Revelation and MultiValue community”, said Mike Ruane, President/CEO Revelation Software, “They asked us for a connection to QM from Ladybridge, and we listened. Our users also gave us a list of enhancements and suggestions for the Banded Report Writer, and we’ve taken care of them as well.”

Also included in the OI 9.3.1 are a number of patches and enhancements for the Banded Report Writer, Table Builder, and Database manager.

“Mobile computing is an essential requirement for any application development”, said Robert Catalano, Director of Sales, Revelation Software. “We are empowering the MultiValue community with one of the best mobile computing toolkits on the market that is affordable, familiar to MV developers, and connects to their existing database with no change.”

I would like to thank all of the developers involved in this release and also to our army of beta testers who provide their time and invaluable feedback.

OpenInsight 9.3.1 Coming ‘VERY’ soon!

Although this is a point release that follows the main recent 9.3 release, this new version features the usual enhancements and fixes and a brand new data connector that will enable MultiValue developers to interface OpenInsight with Ladybridge’s QM database.  Already well tested during the beta cycle, this new connector will feature in a new commercial solution from Stage7 – watch out for more news on that right here and as it breaks.

As well as the QM connector, this new release sees 8 customer lead enhancements to the Banded Report Writer, 15 enhancements to O4W including support for ad hoc reporting, rss maintenance, mobile features (including a separate graphing library, run report function for mobile reports, etc) and much more.  The release also sees some fixes for ARev32, OpenInsight’s .NET functionality, fixes requested by you through the suggestions and bug tracker on and work on the BFS / Connectors.

Revelation Software Plans OpenInsight 9.3.1; Finalizes Dates for 2013 Conference

Revelation Software has announced new features as well as patches and enhancements that will be added in OpenInsight (OI) 9.3.1.

According to Robert Catalano, director of sales at Revelation, the new release includes release 1.3 of OpenInsight for Web (O4W) which offers integration with the new Banded Report Writer, support routines for RSS feeds, and has a new ad hoc Report Builder. In addition, he adds, “We have added some extensions to the jQuery mobile libary for use with the jQuery mobile library to make more robust mobile applications.”

The other major new part of the release which was not ready in time for the 9.3 release of OpenInsight in December is the OI connector for OpenQM from LadyBridge Systems. “We are delighted to be able to plug in our front-end tool kit into that database and we are quite pleased with the way that has progressed,” says Catalano.

Revelation has also finalized the dates and venue of its 2013 conference. The next Revelation Software Users Conference will be held at the Sheraton Music Center Hotel in Nashville, Tenn., April 16-19. “Nashville is a wonderful city and it offers a lot to conference attendees,” Catalano says.

The new release is planned for availability in time for the International Spectrum conference in early April.
