What is New in Version 4.10

Caliach Vision V4.10 operates with Omnis Studio V5.2.2 or greater.

The following relates to changes made since V4.0000.

New Installers

Caliach have introduced a new installer from BitRock and a new resulting file structure that integrates Omnis Studio into the Caliach Vision folder structure so that just one location on your computer contains all files related to Caliach Vision operation. For Microsoft Windows Vista, Server 2008 and 7, this breaks the convention of placing executable files in the Program Files folder of the C drive and the subsequent security enforcement of UAC. However, it is our view that this breach is well worth it for the convenience and of a simple, compact, self-contained and integrated structure.

There are in all 4 installers. A full and demonstration version of each of our supported platforms, Windows and MacOSX. The Demonstration edition contains pre-licensed Caliach Vision and Omnis Studio Runtime. The Full edition contains a full set of Caliach Vision files and both Omnis Studio Runtime and Design programs with user control to include the Design program, typically only needed by the system manager. All version include our 9 additional program languages.

Unlike in the past the installer by default names the folder containing the installation with the version number, so the full version will go to C:\CaliachVision-4.10. If that already exists files within it will always be overwritten. Extra files you have created such as Archive files will still remain but if you have archive or custom files from an older version, it is left to you to copy them to the new folder structure from the old one.

Effects all windows, reports, menus, toolbars, tasks with non-English text substitution from database. Class descriptions and file and field descriptions also translated. New multi-lingual installer and supporting documentation. Extensive revision of Xlate plug-in functionality. For full details see the Program Language Menu topic.

Effect of Upgrade on Customisation

There are no major issues with customisation compliant with V4.00 with one minor exception:

  1. Customised reports will not naturally dynamically translate into non-English. However they can be made to do so with the addition of a class method named $MasterClass with a single line of code Quit method '<StandardClassName>'. With that any standard class translations are mapped onto the custom report when opened.

Known Issues in V4.1000 and Omnis Studio V5.2.3.1

The following issues are known to exist and may be resolved in a future release of Omnis Studio (the previous issue with Unicode characters in PDF documents has been resolved in this release:
