New HanDBase 4.1.5 Development Version Released : 10/10/2009

Postby DavidDevaneyJr » Tue Nov 10, 2009 4:24 pm

We have released new development versions of the following products and they are now available for download:

HanDBase Plus for BlackBerry
HanDBase Professional for BlackBerry
HanDBase Enterprise for BlackBerry

This build adds support for installing the HanDBase application to the new Storm2 and Bold 9700 devices. No additional changes were made in this release.

Please Note: For this installation to work with a Storm2 or Bold 9700 you will need to have the most current version of the BlackBerry Desktop Manager installed.

The way support for these devices was added is different than how it was previously accomplished. While we have tested here to make sure it works properly on these new devices as well as all older supported devices there is the possibility that something broke with these changes. If you are willing to help us test further we would appreciate it. However, since no actual changes were made to the device application this would involve syncing your device to back up your databases and then fully removing HanDBase from your device and from the Application Loader before installing this new build. Doing this would ensure that with this new build the software can properly be installed to older devices. Then after you've installed HanDBase you can synchronize with the HanDBase Conduit to restore your databases. Any help is appreciated.

Answers to common questions:
What is a development version?

A development version is like a public beta version. When we make significant changes to a program that is not part of a major update (eg, 4.0, 5.0), we like to make sure that no new problems surfaced in the fixes we made. While we did test this application in house and with testers, it's best to keep the current release version as the current release, and only those who are needing some of the above changes can take the initiative to download the development version. Should you run into any issues, you can always come back to the Registered User's page and download the current release version to get back to where you were before. As with any update, I'd suggest backing up all your files before performing the update.

How do I get the development version?

Log into the Registered users page:
Username: Your email address
Password: what password you were given at purchase (not your license key). If you don't have this, click the lost password option on the above page and we'll email it to you.

Next to each product you'll see the Download button- that is NOT the one you want as it's the latest release version. Instead, select the option under the words: Latest Development Version: 4.1.5 build D5 to download. That will get you the installer for the development version!

Why was the bug xxx I reported not fixed in this version?

This version addresses most all bugs we were able to verify and duplicate in house. If we can't duplicate the bug we can't fix it. If your submission was not verified, chances are we emailed you back to say we needed more help duplicating the issue on our end. If we didn't, there is a chance we missed it or it fell through the crack. If so, very sorry about that. Feel free to comment in this topic if this is the case, and I can comment on that particular issue or follow up with you.

Is this going to be the release version?

If we find no issues, or can fix any small remaining bugs or issues without any major changes, we will likely just release the slightly fixed version in a few weeks. If there are any significant issues, we'll likely release another development version before the release version.

Hope this version works well for you! Thanks in advance for your assistance.
