2016.2 Field Test Kit 2016.2.0.585.0

I am pleased to announce the next in the series of 2016.2 field test kits, 2016.2.0.585.0.

In the two weeks since the last field test posting Development has made over a hundred fixes and improvements in Atelier, Enterprise Manager, Ensemble and Caché.

In Atelier alone there were over a dozen changes including a fix for the incompatibility issue that Jamie Newton described in his posting of February 1.

In Caché major areas of focus include:

  • SQL (ten changes),
  • ECP and mirroring (11 changes),
  • Objects and JSON (13 changes),
  • DeepSee (nine changes), and
  • Documentation (23 changes)

We also continue to focus on problems turned up by our developer community and so this kit contains the fix to WRC 854826, a problem dealing with REST processing of HTTP Accept headers.

We encourage you to download the kit and give it a try.  You don’t have to be gentle with it either.  The only restriction that we have is that we do no support upgrades from one field test kit to another, but for those who are familiar with our field test program, this is old stuff.

You can download the latest field test of 2016.2  HERE.

As always, we welcome your feedback.
