  1. What’s New in Uniface 9.6.08 (MX07) ======================= Windows 10 is now supported for Uniface 9.6.   Updates for MX07 ------------------------

    + When the binding type is Document/Literal Bare, the developer provides the document, element, and contents for IN parameters and OUT parameters.

    For other binding styles, Unface applies certain rules for how complex data should be provided in parameters.

    + The forentity statement returns error -1102 if the EntityName parameter is incorrect or the entity is not included in the component structure.

    + The psdef.txt file used to configure PostScript printing on Unix is now documented.

    + The timeout values specified by the cto and rto SOAP connection options are also applied when reading the WSDL file prior to sending a SOAP request.

    + The default request timeout for the rto SOAP connector option is now 30,000 milliseconds for both the SOP 1.0 and SOP 2,0 connectors.

    + The default connection timeout for the cto SOAP connector option is now 30,000 milliseconds for both the SOP 1.0 and SOP 2,0 connectors.

    + The UHTTP component now recognizes the "Connection: Keep-Alive" header and will attempt to keep using the same connection as long as successive calls all go to the same host.

    + New options are also available for the UHTTP LOAD_FILE_CONTENTS and DUMP_FILE_CONTENTS operations. The TCPSNDBUF and TCPRCVBUF options can be used to set the size of the TCP send and receive buffers before calling the SEND operation.

    These options can also be used with the GET_INFO operation (after calling the SEND operation) to return the specified TCP buffer size that was used for file transfer.

    + Any popup form that does not fit the screen will be clipped.

    Note: This is a change in behavior. In previous versions of Uniface, when a popup form did not fit, it was centered on the screen, which disconnecting it from its anchor or field.

    A popup form with a title bar opens according to its Position property but will not move with its anchor. If the parent field, rectangle, or form is moved, the opened popup form with title bar stays where it is. It does not move with its parent field. This is contrast to other popup forms, which remain with the parent field and move with it when the field or form is moved.

  2. UPDATE: The documentation delivered with MX07 is missing information on the TCPRCVBUF and TCPSNDBUF options of UHTTP operations LOAD_FILE_CONTENTS, DUMP_FILE_CONTENTS, and GET_INFO. Updated documentation is available via the Documentation page of Uniface.Info, where you can consult the online Uniface Library or download the updated CHM file.
