Postby Jan Aleman » Thu Feb 12, 2004 2:13 am

We announce the immediate availability of Servoy 2.0RC6.

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

Before installing: If you use Mac OS X or Linux have a look at the special note mentioned with the RC2 announcement:

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.

Do not use in production until you have verified that it works properly with test data.

Servoy 2.0RC6 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. If you don't get the autoupdate notification edit your file, make sure the last line in it reads:
