Postby Jan Aleman » Thu Jan 15, 2004 6:56 pm

We announce the immediate availability of Servoy 2.0RC1.

NOTE: this is a Release Candidate, use with caution and make BACKUPS before you start.

Make a backup of your current Servoy installation directory. If you don't use Firebird as your repository database also make a backup of the database you use as a repository database server.

Servoy 2.0RC1 is only available via autoupdate. Start Servoy developer 1.2 or 2.0bx and you will be notified about it. This version does not yet contain the new database engine.

Hmm...seems it won't use my repository in postgres. It won't update/recreate one either...unless I delete it first I guess.

Known issue ?

Are you using the old Postgress db without drop column support?

You can find the new functions by clicking on the security node in the Methods editor, you know have methods to add users to groups, to create users, delete users, change passwords etc. Highlight the syntax to see the syntax.

For SSL configuration point your webbrowser to:
http://localhost:8080/servoy-admin/network-settings
the howto is right there.

Both items will be documented more in detail in the final 2.0 documentation that is being finalized as we speak.

I use PostgreSQL 7.3.3.

Or to be precise: PostgreSQL 7.3.3 on powerpc-apple-darwin6.6, compiled by GCC gcc (GCC) 3.1 20020420 (prerelease)

AFAIK you can't select tabletypes like in MySQL.

I am missing something ?

Column properties all deleted

Postby cjemichael » Fri Jan 16, 2004 11:28 am

I've just applied the auto update to this beta and all my column properties (e.g. auto enter dates or related values) have been deleted.

I'm using Win XP with MS SQL Server 2000.

This is a real problem since I did not notice this initially and have now done about 3 hours work. Now I'm wondering what else will go wrong and whether I should revert back to an earlier beta???

I'm not in a position to use a non-beta since this beta contains many bug fixes I need - such as correct subtollating on forms and sorting on multiple columns with SQL Server 2000.

Please can you URGENLY clarify to all developers and to all your staff your process for recommending and rolling out updates.

I undertand and appreciate this is a new product being rapidly developed, but here are some suggestions...

1. Bring out frequent bug fixes to the latest production version and seperate these from the beta releases (which can be less frequent).

2. Don't recommend people use Betas for production (I have been recommended this twice now) and it's the only option I have.

3. Clearly label versions of the installer on your site as to exactly which version each is. How about putting the version no in the filename?

Thanks

:( :( :(

The procedure is very easy:

1. Make a backup so you can rollback
2. First try it on a non production system

and yes using new beta's can sometimes cost you a few hours. In the long term they will save you hundreds of hours of work and bring you much joy.
