GS-Base 11 has been released

Postby citadel5 » Sun Jun 02, 2013 4:13 pm

GS-Base was released today and is available for downloading. New features include:

[+] Editing letter forms, memo fields and objects in external applications with automatic saving.

[+] Exporting databases to XML files.

[+] Increased maximum memory usage up to 4GB in 64bit systems (which is the maximum value for a 32bit application; previously 2GB).

[+] Displaying open/save progress dialog boxes for all available file formats both when saving recordsets and full databases.

[+] Support for UTF-16 Unicode text files (when importing/exporting recordsets, when loading data from tables manually created/edited and inserted into the database zips by users etc.)

[+] Increased number of record flags (up to 10). New interface functions and menus for record flags handling.

[+] New memo fields and letter form RTF control/editor with much greater editing/displaying capabilities. Storing graphics in memo fields and in letter forms.

[+] Suppressed screen flickering when resizing binary fields.

[+] Displaying images inserted as links.

[+] Icons available as a separate image file type category when using the "Insert Image" command. Displaying actual icons (not placeholders).

[+] Recordsets saved in the native file format (*.zip/*.gsb) contain only the current single table. (Previously: the current, filtered table + all other tables).

[+] Fixed various issues and removed various time traps in the "Database > Merge/Un-merge" function (especially for very large files). Handling binary fields by the "Merge/Un-merge" function.

[+] Displaying the total number of records along with the number of filtered/found records (on the bottom general toolbar).

[+] Changed layout of some menus and shortcuts: grouped searching functions, the "Remove All Filters" command replaced by the "Reset Searching" command.

[+] Treating the "Regular Expression" filter as the default one for text fields. The default filter can be changed in the "Options" dialog box.

[+] Loading/saving memo field contents directly from/to files via the context menu.

[+] Saving recordsets don't change the current database / file path. (The "Save Database Copy As" command does.)

[+] PDF export functions integrated with the "Save Recordset" and "Save Database Copy" commands.

[+] Possible conversion of "Long Text" fields to "Images/Files" field and back.

[+] The default pattern in the (database) "Open" dialog box causes displaying all (new and old versions) *.gsb and *.zip files, no matter which default file extension was selected in the "Options" dialog box. The "GS-Base 6.x-7.x (*.gsb)" category was removed - the files are recognized automatically.

[+] Improved/fixed storing of files with names containing non-ascii characters. (Previously the file names might not be displayed correctly when exploring/browsing the database zip files outside GS-Base, e.g. in Windows Explorer.)

[+] Bug fixes and other minor display and editing improvements.
