Hallo,

aktuell stünde bei mir eine Subscription-Verlängerung an, wenn ich aber 
hier so mitlese was Alaska hier nicht schreibt oder beantwortet frage 
ich mich über die Sinnhaftigkeit. Auch das mit 2.0 eingeführte 
"continous delivery" hat kaum etwas gebracht.

Wahrscheinlich ist es günstiger, das in nächste Update dann einfach 
wieder zu kaufen. Werden ja sicher wieder ein paar Jahre vergehen...

Hallo Markus,

ich habe heute meinen "ich lese mal quer" Tag ...
So bin ich über diese Frage gestolpert.

Ich gestehe, dass mich diese Frage und auch die Ausführungen hier 
ärgern. Ich will nicht über die Sinnhaftigkeit von einer 
Subskriptionverlängerung diskutieren. Das muss jeder selbst wissen.

Aber
 > Auch das mit 2.0 eingeführte

ist schon gemein. Wir haben seit Beginn von "Continous Delivery" 19 
Updates veröffentlicht. Und das ist "kaum etwas gebracht"?

In jedem Update gab es Erweiterungen, Neuerungen und Problembehebungen.

 > Wahrscheinlich ist es günstiger, das in nächste Update dann einfach

Was wird wieder Jahre dauern? Nur weil die Alaska sehr zurückhaltend ist 
mit Versionssprüngen? Wir haben Anpassungen an Xbase++ wegen dem Windows 
Aniversary Update "nur" in einem Update ohne Versionssprung 
veröffentlicht. Andere Firmen machen daraus neue Versionen.

Wie dem auch sei, ich habe mir erlaubt deine Registrierungen anzuschauen 
und das hast bisher versäumt: siehe unten.

Das hast du alles verpasst.

Gruß, Frank


Build 2.00.779 (closed workitems)
New features Add function DbDestroy() to the data-definition-language 
(DDL) to delete an ISAM emulating table programmatically by the 
underlying DatabaseEngine. (xpprt1.dll) (W16CWL)

Fixes/Changes Correct the calculation of the the column widths of the 
grids displayed in the debugger's auxilliary views. These may become 
smaller as the views get refreshed in a debugging session. 
(xppworkbench.exe) (W16CTU) (PDR6868)

  Correct debugger issue where debugging codeblocks and inspecting 
variable values crashes the client application and/or the debugger. 
(xppdbgk.dllxppdapi.dll) (W16CUC) (PDR6874)

  Correct the Xbase++ debugger kernel so that breakpoints set in a 
calling context halt the debuggee after the STEP BACK (step out) command 
is used. (xppdbgk.dll) (W16CWG) (PDR6865)

  Resolve issue where a replace operation may force a runtime error 
right after an append in exclusive mode of the PostgreSQL ISAM 
emulation. (pgdbe.dll) (W16CWJ) (PDR6840)

  Ensure that DllExecuteCall() allows NIL to signal NULL for all 
reference parameter types. If passed by value, only character, object 
and codeblock must support NIL to signal no input value. (xpprt1.dll) 
(W16CWQ) (PDR6864)

  Correct the STEP BACK (step out) command of the Xbase++ debugger so 
that execution halts in the current context if the context was called 
recursively. Currently, the debuggee is halted only after the recursion 
has completed. (xppdbgk.dll) (W16CWR) (PDR6866)

  Correct the debugger kernel so that a "step into" command stops the 
debuggee in the calling function or method if the current line contains 
a RETURN statement. (xppdbgk.dll) (W16CWT) (PDR6867)

  Correct the callstack view in the Workbench debugger so that the 
current context (callstack level) is indicated correctly, even when 
debugging a function that is calling itself recursively. 
(xppworkbench.exe) (W17CW1) (PDR6869)

  Correct the "step over" debugger command so that execution indeed 
stops after the current line when the cursor is on a line calling the 
current procedure recursively. Currently, the "step over" command 
behaves as if "step into" was executed, and execution stops in the first 
line of the current procedure. (xppdbgk.dll) (W17CW3) (PDR4692)

  Fix race condition due to statement leak which leads the PostgreSQL 
server to hang. (pgdbe.dll) (W17CX1) (PDR6625)

unit test to cover aggregate result type handling. (pgdbe.dll) (W17CXQ) 
(PDR6824)

  Fix invalid Recno() and Eof() state after ZAP/DbZap() with PostgreSQL 
ISAM emulation (pgdbe.dll) (W17CXR) (PDR6819)

  Resolve issue with wrong record number in empty workarea if all 
records get filtered out by the FOR expression of the current order. 
Extend unit test. (pgdbe.dll) (W17CXS) (PDR6818)

  Resolve issues where OrdListRebuild() may run into an internal error 
with the PostgreSQL ISAM emulation. (pgdbe.dll) (W17CXT) (PDR6808)

  Fix the issue where creating an index with same name as an open index 
yields error while the PGDBE is trying to update the seek procedure. 
Extend unit test. (pgdbe.dll) (W17CXU) (PDR6806)

  Correct the PostgreSQL documentation regarding the numeric precision 
and scale calculation. (pgdbe.dll) (W17CXW) (PDR6804)

Hallo Frank,

verzeih, aber ich denke Du hast da etwas übersehen. Der Threaderöffner 
hat das im September 2015(!) geschrieben. Damals war überhaupt noch 
nicht absehbar, wie sich das mit der Continuous Delivery entwickeln 
würde. Und nach den Erfahrungen mit vorigen Update-Abständen kann ich 
den Kommentar von Markus durchaus verstehen.

Hey Jan,

ja, das kam spät von mir.
Aber ich konnte das nicht so stehen lassen.
Und ich hatte mir extra das Kundenkonto vorher angeschaut.

Ich kann Kritik ertragen. Auch wenn sie manchmal weh tut. Alaska macht 
definitiv nicht alles richtig. Aber wir versuchen auch Dinge zu ändern.
Diese CDI haben wir ja explizit gemacht, damit nicht nur alle 5 Jahre 
etwas passiert. CDI macht es anders. Es geht hier auch nicht um die 
Frequenz. Sondern vorher haben wir immer gewartet und gewartet und 
gewartet und noch dieses Feature dran gemacht und noch das Schleifchen. 
Nun trauen wir uns auch mal eine Doku zu vernachlässigen. Oder vergeben 
Feature-Grades ("Reifezustand" eines Features), ...

Damit sind wir näher an den Usern. Zumindest bilden wir uns das ein.

Anyhow, CDI war ein wichtiger Schritt.
Videos - habe gerade die Preview des nächsten Videos angeschaut - sollen 
noch weiter helfen. Und und und ...

Bis bald,

Frank

Hallo Frank,

versteh mich bitte nicht falsch. Ich bin durchaus sehr einverstanden mit 
Eurer CDI. Steffen hatte mir schon 2008 in Berlin vor versammelter 
Mannschaft zugesichert, das die Rhythmen der Fixes kürzer werden würden. 
Und wir wissen beide, was passiert ist. Es hat sich nämlich garnichts 
geändert danach. Jetzt mit CDI ist das vielleicht nicht so schnell wie 
gewünscht (die Ansprüche steigen halt), und viele Punkte sind überhaupt 
nichts für mich, aber ja, wenn das so weitergeht wie die letzten Monate, 
dann bin ich durchaus zufrieden damit.

Aber damals, als Markus das schrieb, war das noch in keinster Weise 
absehbar, was da kommen würde. Du hast zwar unten eine lange Latte von 
abgearbeiteten Punkten zitiert, und das will ich auch nicht klein reden. 
Aber auch die Abstände zwischen einzelnen Updates im CDI waren 
zwischendurch immer mal nicht von schlechten Eltern - und das meine ich 
nicht positiv. Es scheint sich jetzt ganz wesentlich zu bessern. Aber 
zum zum Zeitpunkt der Threaderöfffnung war das halt noch nicht absehbar, 
da war gerade nach 6monatiger Pause gerade ein Update erschienen. Was 
nicht den damals von Alaska kommunizierten Ansprüchen entsprach.

Kannst du dir wirklich solche Jahreszahlen merken? 2008?
Wie dem auch sei, CDI hat uns locker 2 Jahre an Arbeit gekostet. Das ist 
ja nicht nur, dass wir Updates bereitstellen, sondern dahinter steckt ja 
eine komplette Infrastruktur. Das fängt vom Build-Prozessor an (also das 
Ding, das Xbase++ und all seine Komponenten zusammenbaut) bis hin zum 
Packaging und Deployment. Ganz ehrlich: wir machen da nix mehr von Hand. 
Das ist alles automatisiert (leider noch nicht das PDR Fixing ). Und 
das war eine gewaltige Aufgabe.

Und auch wir freuen uns, dass wir uns die Zeit dafür genommen haben, 
denn es macht Dinge einfacher und macht uns flexibler. Und hilft unseren 
Kunden.

"Als Markus das schrieb" waren auch schon einige Updates verfügbar. Ich 
habe gerade nachgeschaut: das waren seit Erscheinen der Version 2.0 5 
Updates bis zum Post. Also so schlecht hat das nicht ausgesehen. Auch 
wenn ich die Zweifel manchmal verstehe.

Gruß, ich

Hallo Frank,

2007 war die Devcon in Berlin, und da war das auf der 
Abschlußveranstaltung. Deswegen weiß ich das halt noch. Hab mich nur 
vertippt ... 

Und ja, ich weiß das die ganze Geschichte bei Euch inzwischen 
automatisiert wurde. Irgendeiner der anderen Drei hat mir das mal 
erzählt vor zwei Jahren oder so. Ich fand das damals einfach nur genial.
