The first Early Software Access Program (ESAP) release of OpenEdge 11.6 is available now. This release includes updates to ABLDoc and ABLUnit, an early look at OOABL Enumerations and Reflection, an OpenEdge Adapter for Generic JMS, some SQL enhancements and improvements to OpenEdge Management. Descriptions of the features are available on the 11.6 ESAP Community forum. If you haven’t signed up for the ESAP program please send email to firstname.lastname@example.org. This is your opportunity to provide input into the next release of the OpenEdge product!
As Kris noted, this ESAP is packed with new features, many of which were requested by customers. We look forward to your feedback!
Is this the complete changelist or are there other new features?
I was looking forward to the extened xref and qryinfo output as well as the "productionized" profiler (all three from the community ideas).
As with all OpenEdge releases, there will be on the order of 50-75 feature enhancements. Kris highlighted a few key areas where we are making improvements, but no, that is not a complete list. As we get closer to our release date there will be more information on what new features have been added.
Is there a chance that the new profiler and the extenden xref/qryinfo will make it into 11.6?
We are working on the profiler as a higher priority, and our goal is to get it completed for the OpenEdge 11.6 release. We are also looking at extending xref/qryinfo for that release as well.
That's great to hear, thank you
Will the new profiler be able to read profile data generated with older releases or OpenEdge? We won't be able to upgrade our customers to the latest version in the near future, but would like to use the profiler in house...
