 Borland fixes some problems with new release!

Hello All,

I just loaded the latest release of delphi (maint. upgrade, about $10).

It fixes the following (there are some Report Smith problems it fixes
also, but since I do not use it...):

Delphi
------
o Fixed problems in the Delphi online help system.

o Improved compatibility with Windows 95 for MDI (e.g., new
  child) and OLE2 (e.g., insert object).

o IDE de{*filter*} compatibility fix for Windows NT.

o Fixed MDI design-mode problem when minimizing MDI Child window.

o Major changes to OLE2 API unit (see \DELPHI\DOC\OLE2.INT).

o Fixed unit version problem in DLIB.EXE.

o Fixed problem in Browser when you double-click a reference to
  a .PAS file that is not already open in the editor.

o Fixed Options|Rebuild Library problem when the current project
  has an active Dataset.

o Fixed Alt+Tab problem in Grid control.

o Fixed DBGrid to allow cancel of SetKey mode.

o TForm.DefineProperty now calls its inherited method.

o Support for owner draw in TOutline.

o DBImage.CutToClipboard now correctly updates the clipboard.

o In TDataSource.OnDataChange, fixed invalid pointer in the
  Field Parameter.

o Fixed various demo problems.

Local InterBase
---------------
o Improved performance of index creation and SQL request
  involving sort operations on data that exceeds the database
  cache as defined during database create.

o Improved I/O diagnostic and error messages from the server.

o Enhanced the Local InterBase engine to handle complex requests
  that reference more than 500 columns causing internal buffers
  to exceed 64k.

o Improved performance of Local InterBase requests that reference
  more than 500 columns.

o Removed the Local InterBase internal requirement that databases
  have a page size of 1024.  It is now possible to create and use
  a Database specifying any allowable InterBase page size.

o Numeric overflow errors are now trapped by Local InterBase and
  reported correctly to the client application.

o Fixed the incompatibility when using DashBoard, from Starfish
  Inc., and viewing users in the InterBase security database
  (Task|User Security) with the InterBase Server Manager tool.

o Fixed cleanup problems encountered when exiting the Windows
  Interactive SQL tool while executing a database validate
  (Task|Database Validate) in the InterBase Server Manager.

BDE
---

This version of the Borland Database Engine is the same version
that is used with the new Visual dBase 5.5.

o Fixed TQuery and TTable so that they support Oracle synonyms.
  Synonyms can now be viewed by typing its name in the name
  table property.

o Editing now supported of an opened Paradox table simultaneously
  in Delphi with referential integrity constraints.

o Fixed the ability to support Stored Procedures that have string
  parameters.

o Fixed problems relating to accessing tables on Lantastic 6.0
  network.

o Removed the nine parameter limitation for SQL queries.

o Fixed problems relating to opening Access 2.0 files through
  ODBC.

o Fixed DBD so that it is now able to open Watcom 4.0 tables.

o Fixed 32K memory leak associated with live-query results sets
  and also for local queries involving joins.

o Fixed problem moving batch from ASCII fixed-length files.

o Now supports the Sybase forcedindex feature.

o Added support for Informix 5.X.

If anyone can remember who was having the problem with the 9 parameter in
a SQL statement limit, please tell him!

Talk to all of you later (the upgrade can be obtained from Borland),
Allen

Allen,
        I was _one_ of those people, but I believe I was using the latest version
of the BDE (unless there are corresponding fixes in Delphi proper.)  I
downloaded BDEDEMO.ZIP from Borland and installed it, and I'm pretty sure I
was still having problems with the 10th and subsequent parameters
afterwards - the 10th through 15th were corrupted, and the query failed
with 16 or more parameters.  I don't have time to go back and try it out
again - I've managed to use Append instead.  Maybe someone else can confirm
this is or isn't a problem anymore?

Have fun,
        Mazz.

Hi,

Nope.  What Borland does is send you Delphi "all over again". Meaning
that you get a CD (or disks) with ALL of Delphi on it. You install
this over your current version.

I guess this is not just a patch (which they HAVE been releasing
through their FTP site), it is a bit more significant.

Documentation still needs help... Oh well!

Allen

Hi,

Yes, the fix is in Delphi proper. The list of fixes that I posted ONLY
appear in the maint. release from Delphi.

Good Luck,
Allen
