Servoy 2020.12.1

Postby jcompagner » Mon Jan 25, 2021 8:01 pm

We are pleased to announce the availability of Servoy 2020.12.1 (release number 3623)

Look at the whats new for more info about the 2020.12.x changes
For all fixes in this release see issues list.

This version is available through the the download site

We ship only installers, so for windows an exe file and for osx a dmg, for linux we have a archive tar file.

The full installers/archives are only for new installs, never use that to update/overwrite an existing install, existing installations should always be updated through the "check for updates".
This release can be updated by using the "latest" url: http://download.servoy.com/developer/latest/ (when you come from 2019.03 or higher)
If you install a clean install besides the current one which is 2019.12 or lower, be aware that the workspace will be upgraded and it is not recommended to use an upgraded workspace with an older release again.
This release is build on Eclipse 2020.09 (4.17)

If check for updates says there are no updates, then it could be a caching problem of eclipse, please restart the developer once and try again.

We ship a java with our installation (Java 15.0.1). So there doesn't need to be a java installed on the system anymore.
Also with a next update, we can update the java version with it so no need to keep it up to date yourself anymore.


This is a release in our quarterly release cycle, if you want to stay on the LTS path you need to stick to 2020.03.2 and enabled only the lts update site.

Hi,
has something changed with the 'download site' as I thought we used to be able to choose an option that we were already registered & could use our existing login details.
Currently it looks like we have to re-register or use a LinkedIn login??
Thanks

Hi Rafi,

No you should be able to login with the same credentials as always.
Do you get a particular error message?

Best,

Hi Rafi

Looks like the link takes you to the register page instead of the login page. If you click on the Login in the bottom left you will be taken to the login page where you can use your usual credentials.

Hi Sean & Steve,
you are both correct, I can, but I have to say, the UX on that 'dialog' is poor as I did not think to click the 'Login' button as it appears grey (non active?) & one would think it is part of the registration.
Maybe it can be reworded to say 'Already Registered - Login' or similar & not appear inactive??
Thanks

I agree with the poor UX comment and I think the better solution would be to change the link to the Login screen as the option to Register from the login screen is far more obvious than then option to Login from the register screen.
