- The handling of Office Settings has been enhanced so that changes to these are distributed to end users smoothly.
- MySQL data base support is now explicit – using the .NET MySQL provider and also ODBC. In the process, data source handling in general has been made more efficient.
- Two new functions have been released:
<<GetValidFileName>>function will take a data element value and examine it for characters which are illegal in a file name, and either remove those illegal characters, or replace them with a string supplied to the function. For example, if the data element name Reference contains the string
Smith/Jones & Cothen
<<GetValidFileName(Reference,‘-’)>>will return the value
Smith-Jones & Co. In other words, the character “/” has been replaced with “-”.
<<CreateDataElement>>function will add a new data element to the data set for the template. For example:
<<CreateDataElement('FileNameFromReference',GetValidFileName(Reference,'-'))>>will extract a valid file name from the value of Reference, and assign that value to a new data element called FileNameFromReference. The new data element can then be used in the configuration for the template folder Standard Folders as a file-or-folder name pattern without the fear that a user might enter an illegal file name character.
- A number of bugs have been fixed, and a number of features have been streamlined.
