ENHANCEMENTS & BUG FIXES

  • 001 Compression in GUI protocol. When using a DVM 1.31 with a 1.31 front-end, the GUI protocol compression is automatically enabled.
  • 002 Interruption handling with SSH port forwarding: When using a DVM 1.31 with a 1.31 front-end, interruption handling is automatically managed by using SIGIO signals on the tcp socket. This allows to support some ‘system’ events like user interruption or front-end termination, while the BDL program is running in processing mode (not waiting for a user action). Previous versions did use OOB signals to handle interruption, which is not forwarded in ssh tunnelling.
  • 003 OPTIONS ON CLOSE APPLICATION is now available, to execute special code when the front-end stops. For example, when the user quits the session or when a workstation shutdown occurs.
  • 004 New method ui.Form.setElementStyle() to change the style of an element in a form.
  • 005 New method ui.Dialog.setFieldStyle() to change the style of the view node of a field during a INPUT/CONSTRUCT DISPLAY ARRAY/INPUT ARRAY.
  • 006 Dynamic C extension libraries can now be specified in FGLPROFILE. In previous versions you could only specify a Dynamic C extension library in the command line.
  • 007 Improved front-end identification during initial phase when the VM connects to the client. The client now sends a second ‘front-end-id’ that is checked by the runtime system. If the runtime system cannot identify the client, error -6314 occurs.
  • 447 Even if you inactive the comment line, the comment of input field is displayed
  • 967 The brace { in the same line as screen should be supported
  • 1172 When you reach the end of a help message, press “screen” button quits the help
