Author: ulrichmerkel@web.de (ulrich-merkel)

Lot's of snow in germany making travelling anightmare. So it's a perfect weekend for 9.6 experiments ################################################################################ - Because I'm very keen to see the new samples: where can I find them in uniface.info ???????? - They say patch x101 is mandatory, but I can not find a link on frontline. Can someone help me ############################################################################### ####################################################################### the frontline message http://frontline.compuware.com/products/UF/default.aspx reads: ####################################################################### 07-Dec-2012: Uniface 9.6 is now available: * Further information is available in the release information section of Technical Information * Patch X101 the first patch for Uniface 9.6 has been released. This is a mandatory patch for use with Uniface 9.6. Not using it will result in an incompatibility. * Although unsupported, the Solid 4.5 driver is included in the Uniface 9.6 distribution for migration purposes. More information can be found here * With effect from Uniface 9.6, there will be changes in the Uniface distribution * The Uniface Support lifecycle has been updated to reflect the release of Uniface 9.6. * Documentation for Uniface 9.6.01 X101 is now available on the Documentation page. ##################################################################################### and the changes in the distribution http://frontline.compuware.com/products/uf/tech/30077.aspx reads: ##################################################################################### Changes in Uniface Distribution Last Reviewed : 07-Dec-2012 With effect from Uniface 9.6, we will have several changes in both how we distribute Uniface, and what the distribution will contain. eDistribution: We will only distribute Uniface electronically. We are no longer planning to create distribution CDs/DVDs. If you have a requirement for a physical distribution of Uniface, please contact support, and to discuss what options are available. UnifaceView: As we progress towards the decommissioning of the Uniface View and Uniface Flow, we have now removed Uniface View from the distribution. Uniface Samples: Uniface samples are no longer part of the Uniface distribution. They will now be made available on uniface.info. UnifaceJTi: UnifaceJTi will now be a separate download, so will no longer be part of the Uniface distribution.

    Hi Luigi, thanks for the path, but it does not "open up" when I tried it. And the frontline patches overview does not have a 9.6 section so far. Finaly, I got it with a nasty trick: went to frontline pretending to download a 9.5 patch so I get the ftp page; then changed the path to 9601 and the I could download the patch X101. OK so far, and my local salesrep told me that it may take some days to get the 9.6 link to download my playground.

  4. Hi Zdeněk, thanks for clearing this, as you see, I am not downloading stuff so often from the internet using ftp. Still, there is no link to 9.6 Patches on frontline which I normally use to download my patches
