What’s New in Omnis (Dec-2015)
Omnis Studio 6.1.3 does not contain any substantive new features, only a number of fixes for reported faults: see the Readme.txt for details of the faults fixed in this version. This release includes the following minor enhancements:
Initiate Emails, Calls and Texts from your mobile apps
The Email, Call, and SMS Device Control actions will attempt to execute the relevant action if the app is running in a browser on a mobile device and not inside a wrapper.
Synchronization Server and Wrappers
The SQLite Synchronization Server, required to support standalone mobile apps, now allows non-integer (character) primary keys, allows up to 1024 mobile client devices, and allows you to enable/disable Primary Key Enforcement (PKE). A new set of application wrappers will be released to support the Sync Server updates.
PDF Printing and Python
PDF printing now supports the 64-bit version of Python. You need to install the 64-bit version of Python and update your Omnis configuration file to support this.
Complex Grids and Data Grids
The $defaultdateisempty property has been added to the PostgreSQL DAM to convert retrieved datetimes to empty when they match $defaultdate.
The $quit() method of an Automation Object has a new optional parameter 'hwnd' to allow you to terminate the object’s process.
64-bit on Linux
the 64-bit version of the Omnis Studio SDK is now available under Linux, along with the Omnis App Server and Omnis Runtime (CAL)
