Is it possible to see whats in the patch release without having to download and install the product.

Also where a patch is sent for a limited number of platforms, will there be any indication as to why it has only been sent for a limited number of platforms, or will the other platforms be available in due course.

Actually the summary of changes can be found in:

(not release.txt as written by Olivier)

Detailed changes for each commit/build are logged in:


Here are the changes since build 1138 (first release):

build 1148
Enhancement: fgldbsch extracts now more MySQL types from database schema.
fgldbsch can now extract MySQL *TEXT types as Informix TEXT, *BLOB, BINARY,
types as Informix SMALLINT.

build 1147
Multiple dialogs: DISPLAY ARRAY, INPUT ARRAY: must emulate cursor keys when
changing the current row (via mouse click).

build 1146
bug 9009: Invalid memory read when fetching ROWID values with Oracle.

build 1145
bug 9007: fglrun crash when using FROM "tablename" in dynamic SQL.

build 1144
Changes in AUI attributes definitions:
- 'orientation' default is vertical.
- 'height' and 'width' type is string, not integer.

build 1143
Multiple dialogs: INPUT ARRAY using a table: mouse click into same column,
different row: wrong selection after NEXT FIELD CURRENT or validation error
(changing of current row must be dropped, the current field be selected).

build 1142
bug 8953: The attribute GRIDCHILDRENINPARENT is not allowed for SCROLLGRID.

Product version 2.10.02

build 1141
Merged modifications from build 966.84.

build 1140
Multiple dialogs:
- INPUT ARRAY(COUNT = value): fixed bug if value less then 0.
- ATTRIBUTE(MAXCOUNT=value): if MAXCOUNT is less then COUNT (or getLength())
  the array length will be shrunk to MAXCOUNT. MAXCOUNT=0 is a legal value and
  denies inserting rows into the array.


bug 8981: Internal error when COUNT=-2 in INPUT ARRAY WITHOUT DEFAULTS.

build 1139
Multiple dialogs:
- traditinal DISPLAY ARRAY: keys tab and right work like key down, key left
  works like key up.
- ATTRIBUTE(CANCEL=false) must disable both, CANCEL and CLOSE.

bug 8983: TAB key doesn't work in DISPLAY ARRAY with FGL_USENDIALOG=1

About the limited number of platforms:

Port and QA tests takes time and resources.

We provide Patch Releases for a limited number of platforms to have a better reactivity.

If really needed (blocking bug), we can make a special port for a specific platform on demand.
