Syncplify Server! v6.2.5 released

Importance of this update: MEDIUM
  • A glitch in the Admin UI could occasionally give the impression that updates to the HTTPS/WebClient! weren’t persisted in the database (they were but without visual feedback)
  • Counter of cleaned up items in the block-list (only in log files) was wrong
  • System-wide used RAM (memory) percentage indicator, per node, has been added to the dashboard
  • A few additional variables have been added to those you can use to customize the various protocol handler banners

IMPORTANT NOTE: those who are running the “worker” system service under a different account (not System or LocalSystem) will need to re-configure the service to run under such account after upgrading from any version number <= 6.1.12)

Upgrading from v6.x.y is a simple and fairly automatic process: simply download the latest version from the official download page, and install it over the existing version, all of your settings and license will be kept.

If, instead, you’re upgrading from an older (v4/v5) version, you find the upgrade instructions in our knowledge base.

Adding database support to aftJS (in both Server! and AFT!)

In the next version of the aftJS language (that will be included with Server! v6 and AFT! v4) you’ll find, for the first time, client objects to interact with several SQL and NoSQL databases.

At the time this article is being written, this is still work in progress. But for those of you who can’t wait, here’s an actual script that we tested successfully just moments ago:

  var cli = new SqlCli().Driver("sqlite").ConnString(":memory:");
  cli.Exec('CREATE TABLE places (place text NULL,code integer)');
  cli.Exec('INSERT INTO places (place, code) VALUES (?,?)', ['universe', 42]);
  cli.Exec('INSERT INTO places (place, code) VALUES (?,?)', ['milky way', 23]);
  var res = cli.Query('SELECT * FROM places');

And here’s the log line that proves it works:
