Servoy 2019.12

Postby jcompagner » Wed Jan 08, 2020 7:00 pm

We are pleased to announce the availability of Servoy 2019.12 (release number 3542)

This version is available through the the download site
We ship from now on by default only archive installers, so for windows a zip file and for osx/linux tar files.
That people can just extract and run. For OSX you need to make sure you follow a few steps (run firstuse.command first and then allow the app to run)

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: (when you come from 2019.03 or higher)
If you install a clean install besides the current one which is 2019.06 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 the same Eclipse base because of some issues, so the workspace is not upgraded if you come from 2019.09.

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 now ship a java with our installation (Java 13.0.1). 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.

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 if you come from 84 (but you can reuse the existing workspace just fine)

This is a release in our quarterly release cycle, if you want to stay on the LTS path you need to stick to 2019.03.1 and enabled only the lts update site.

For more information for the 2019.12 release check: Whats new

and the full list of cases

If you do update then it could be that there is a left over driver in the drivers dir that has 0 bytes. Make sure you delete that one, and if you make war exports from this make sure you don't include this 0 byte driver jar. That will result in errors when deploying.
