  1. Hello cabero!  Keep an eye out on Github for "stuff". Here are my highlights, which may or may not be relevant to your site.

    • All patches are inclusive now (this includes distributions; for example going from 9.7.04 to Patch H111 would include 9.7.05 and all appropriate patches) 
    • 7.04 has Oracle 12.2 support 
    • 7.05 will be the last release on 9.7
      • We will have to include the C++ 2015 runtime redistributable 
    • 10.3 will be released soon
      • We will need to switch to STANDARD deployment (we are currently using CLASSIC), but I have a much better understanding of how this works now (and an email address of someone who will share how they did it)
      • 10.3 will put the create table utility back. It is now done from the command line and you can only do one table at a time 
      • Uniface 10x uses the “Scintilla” editor and they are working on enabling more of the functionality – I guess 9.7 is a proprietary editor (one customer asked about cutting and pasting from Uniface to Word and keeping the colors from the editor – apparently that isn’t working in 10.2)
      • They are also working on better source control (with a focus on Git … )
        • Anyhow, they will only have the timestamp modification in one place
        • In theory, the code won’t get all jumbled up anymore either (easier to compare)

    Session Notes

    • A lot on web
    • A lot on mobile apps
    • A lot on security (I did learn some useful information here)
    • Discussed what the cloud is and how Uniface uses it 
    • Discussion on menu extensions (which I didn’t quite understand)
    • There were two customer presentations, which are always interesting to hear / see
