Servoy 2019.03 release candidate 1

Postby jcompagner » Tue Mar 12, 2019 6:19 pm

We are pleased to announce the availability of Servoy 2019.03 release candidate 1 (release number 3410)

This version is available through the jar or exe
The update site can't be used to upgrade from 84 to this release, a bug in the eclipse update mechanisme will result in a broken installation.
So a clean install needs to be done (but you can reuse the existing workspace just fine)

Release notes of this release 2019.03 whats new

issues fixed see our wiki: 2019.03 RC release notes

The final is planned at the end of March or beginning of April

2019.03 will succeed the 84 release, so there will no more 8.4.x release

From now an Servoy will have a regular scheduler of releasing, so every last month of a quarter after the first week a first RC will be released of that quarter (so next will be 2019.06)
and in the last week of that quarter or the first week of the next quarter the final release will be done.
Check this for more info.

This branch (2019.03) will be promoted to be a LTS release, after we released 2019.06 you can choose to stay on the 2019.03.X LTS branch for the coming year to have only some bug fixes or get the latest updates every quarter.

Also released is the Servoy-Extra web package version 1.8.0

this release is a bit special because we removed the internal fontawesome from it completely and moved that to its own package
We released 2 version at the same time of font-aweseom, and those versions reflects directly the font-awesome version itself. Previously we where on 4.x so now you can choose to go to 5.x if you want
With 5 we do ship the shims so it should be quite compatible.

If you now use the fontawesome service you need to remember to include this when exporting a WAR.
If you install servoy-extra 1.8 then also font-awesome service will be automatically installed.
But it will not be auto shipped in a WAR!

We will have a look in 2019.06 if we can improve that so that components can say i depend on X and if the component is selected also X is selected automatically in the WAR.

The installer does not work for me. It hangs when you click the Next button on the Setup Shortcuts page. There is no text in the Setup page. Appears that the developer folder is missing files. There is no servoy application file.

what is your OS where you try to install on?
Which java is installed there? (if you type java -version on a command line)

I will update the release notes/whats new section also for this.
But Servoy 2019.03 and higher now needs a 64 bit java (for the developer) because the underlying Eclipse did kill the 32 bit builds completely.

So you have to make sure you use a 64 bit java
