OI 9.3 Dedicated and Background Indexer Patch

Revelation have identified an issue in OpenInsight 9.3 that prevents scheduled and dedicated indexing processes from starting.  The problem is limited to these scheduled index processes:

  • Set_IDX function launches the dedicated indexing window but no indexing occurs.
  • Launching OEngine.exe with /I command line argument launches the dedicated indexing window but no indexing occurs.
  • The background indexing setting in the database manager that specifies the delay before indexing has no effect.

Routines that call Update_Index directly or run the dedicated indexing service as a Windows scheduled task are unaffected by this problem.

OpenInsight WORKS subscribers can gain access to the patch by logging into the WORKS area on www.revelation.com.

OpenInsight 9.3 Released

Revelation have just officially announced the release of OpenInsight 9.3 and the office press releases can be found on both the Us and European websites.  The European press release can be found at http://tinyurl.com/ctz85u2 and it touches on the major new features, being Data Encryption at Rest, O4W version 1.2, the brand new Banded Report Writer and the inclusion of some Extended Math Functions.  This release also sees an enhancement to the D3 connector, which now fully supports TigerLogic’s mvBase.

As Mike mentions “Our connection technology has truly made OpenInsight a versatile front-end graphical database development environment”.  With the other advancements in the technology, I am proud to be part of the Revelation team and I look forward to bringing the benefits of OpenInsight 9.3 to the wider developer community throughout 2012.
