Question: When will documentation for 2.1 become available? The downloadable doc files at http://developer.servoy.com/generic.jsp?taxonomy_id=248 currently point to 2.0 documentation.

We are in the process of getting all the 2.1 documents together, many developers needed the 2.1 final release for production so we did release the code in advance on the forum.
We will announce the release with docs on the Servoy website and via mail to everyone, the latest developer documentation is loaded when opened!

Last night I updated 2.0.x version to 2.1 through the automatic update feature because it told me the finale 2.1 version was available.
Turns out that it upgraded to 2.1rc4.

You might want to fix this :)

Well our update is incremental, so you have to update in about 3 steps if coming from Servoy 2.04

That might be the case but the (first) update screen said it was the 2.1 final.

After that update it tells me there is a new build available...etc. So pretty confusing.
I already heard from one person they didn't wanted to upgrade because this was a 'beta'.

So maybe it's better to make things clear that you need to do multiple updates or make one combined update.

just updated trough the 3 steps mentioned above.

And now as i launch servoy i get this message:
cannot find recent repository (version) on current server connection, do you want to create/update?
if i choose OK servoy tells me that cannot create repository ==> details:
com.servoy.j2db.persistence.RepositoryException: A column on table servoy_content_spec/server repository_server with name default_textual_classvalue already exists
and stays unavailable;
the same happens as i choose cancel, Servoy is not working anymore.

Is it just me?
i'm on a Mac OSX

thanks
Armando

We have not heard of repository upgrade problems (since this is critical we did very extensive testing ourselfs), is it possible for you to send via mail the repository database file? (if you are using servoy on sybase it is called servoy_repository.db in the database folder)

For me, this is the best Servoy version ever! Upgrading at the clients site worked flawlessly.

Even without the use of the enhanced functionality my client noticed a speed bump.

I am now working hard to rewrite the application into an all new version using the following extensively:

- more functions with the foundset for faster db actions
- adding cascading style sheets
- adding i18n labels

and a lot of the other stuff that's in there.

At the moment I can harly believe it's been no longer than one year ago that I started to work with Servoy. At that time, starting my own business, it was a dive into the deep to make the choice for a complete new developer tool. Some even said I made a mistake. By today I know I made the right choice. The flexibility of Servoy often makes me wonder what my prospect thinks when I can only say 'yes I can do that' to his/her questions all the time.

The only appropriate thing that I can say is THANK YOU SERVOY TEAM for yet another, improved, version of Servoy. If the next year is going to be like the last we are going to have lot's of fun together.

Marcel
Thank you for your kind words. We can hardly believe all that has happened in a year and it is also thanks to the great feedback and support of the product from developers like you. Your enthusiasm is a spur to the development team and we are extremely grateful!

Here's to the next year!
