  2. Updates for G102:

    • A new bom connector option is available for the TXT driver. It enables you to control whether a Byte Order Mark is written, expected, or required for Unicode files.
    • It is now possible to specify the authentication method used by the UHTTP component when submitting SEND requests.
      • Use the UHTTP_DEF_AUTH logical to set the default authentication for the web server of the destination URL. Use the $UHTTP_DEF_PROXY_AUTH setting to set the default authentication for the proxy server, if used.
      • Per SEND request, use the Username parameter of the SEND operation, to specify an authentication method for the applicable server,.
      If there is an authentication scheme defined, either in the assignment file or in Proc, authentication will be carried out, whether a user name is provided or not. Note: This represents a behavior change. Previously, there was no authentication if the Username parameter was empty. On Windows only, when the default authentication is specified in the assignment file, and no user name is supplied by the SEND operation, the credentials of the current user are used for authentication. (This functionality is not available under Unix.)
    • Use a Uniface list (GOLD-separated), not a comma-separated list, when specifying occurrence options. For example: $curoccvideo ("ENT1","inner;off")
