Overview Reference
After the installation of a new version of the GDC, a popup allows you to import the configuration (shortcuts and options) of a previous version. No additional reference.
GDC 3.00 is compatible with Genero runtime system (DVM) 3.00.
When using an HTTP connection through the GAS:
  • GDC 3.00 should use uaproxy (ua) and requires a Genero runtime system (DVM) 3.00.
  • GDC 2.50 should use gdcproxy (ja) and requires a Genero runtime system (DVM) 2.50.
See the Install and License your Genero Products manual for more information.
GDC 3.00 supports Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6), in addition to Internet Protocol Version 4 (IPv4), when:
  • Using a web server (connected to a GAS).
  • Using port forwarding through an ssh tunnel.
However, as the DVM does not support IPv6, you cannot launch an application on a distant host with a GDC listening, using direct connection.
See Port forwarding and the Creating shortcuts using the Shortcut Wizard section.
GDC configuration files, supporting files, and cached files are now written to the User directory, providing each user with their own configuration settings (amongst other things) by default. See GDC configuration file directories.
The Connections panel displays information about cookies. See Connections panel.
Chinese translation is available. No additional reference.
HTTP protocol enhancements:
  • Support of single sign-on (SSO) mechanism.
  • Support of auto logout.
See the Genero Application Server User Guide for more information on the HTTP protocol.
Web component enhancements:
  • Support of URL-based web components.
