New features and improvements in "Update 2" (version 280094)
New names of constants used by the emailSMTPSession type:
  • Until version 28 Update 3 (280085N), the Option property of a variable of type emailSMTPSession could take the following constants:
    • emailOptionDefault,
    • emailOptionSecuredTLS: unencrypted connection on port 587, then sends a StartTLS command to start encryption,
    • optionSSL: encrypted TLS connection.
The names of these constants could be confusing as to which protocol was actually being used.
To improve code readability, the constants have been renamed from version 28 "Update 4" (280094):
  • the emailOptionSecuredTLS constant becomes emailProtocolSMTPS,
  • the optionSSL constant becomes optionTLS,
  • The values of the constants remain unchanged,
  • the old constant names:
    • are no longer recognized by syntax highlighting,
    • no longer appear in the code completion suggestions,
    • can still be used without causing a compilation error or unexpected behavior at runtime.
New features and improvements in "Update 1" (version 280085)
  • New skin template: Eleven.
  • In addition to the Ctrl + C and Ctrl + V shortcuts, copy and paste options are now available in the context menu of the controls.
Window editor
  • Improved style selection window ("Choose a style" in the context menu of the control).
Report editor
  • Report creation wizard: "None" option now available for the selection of the skin template of a report. In this case, no skin template will be applied to the report.
Installation of WINDEV applications
WDSetup, the default installer for WINDEV applications, has been revamped and now offers a better and more consistent interface for all applications developed with WINDEV.
All WINDEV application setup programs regenerated with WINDEV Update 1 will automatically use this new interface.
Since this is a cleaner interface, some options have changed. These changes affect:
  • The setup program creation wizard:
    • In "Installer skin template", you can only select a background image. It is no longer possible to select a specific skin template.
    • In "Title and logo", it is no longer possible to customize the side image by clicking "Logo".
  • The options in the WDInst setup editor:
    • The "Side image of the wizard" option has been removed from the "Style" tab.
    • In the "Wizard" tab, the "Wizard skin template" option only allows choosing a background image for the wizard. It is no longer possible to select a specific skin template.The "WDSetup" example has also been updated to use the new interface.
Minimum version required
