Panorama X 10.2.0 b37 Build 4442 Release Notes

This release includes three new functions and about a dozen bug fixes.

  • New stringreverse( function reverses the order characters in a string of text.
  • New functions superdateunixtime( and unixtimesuperdate( convert between superdates and 13 digit UNIX epoch date/time values.
  • Fixed problem of some loops “stuttering” every 32nd time thru the loop. (This only occurred if loop was possibly infinite, i.e. “while forever”.)
  • Added Database, Spreadsheet, JSON and CSV as Spotlight keywords to the Panorama bundle. The will now show up in Spotlight if you type in any of these keywords.
  • Panorama now auto-generates a field name (A, B, C, etc.) if you enter empty name in field properties panel. (A field with an empty field name cannot be modified, so this should be avoided.)
  • The setfieldnames statement now ignores any empty names in the list of new field names (the existing field name will be unchanged).
  • When creating a new database from a text file with column names, any empty names are auto-assigned to A, B, C, etc.
  • The replacefirst(, regexreplacefirst( and regexreplacefirstexact( functions now work correctly even if the text to be replaced doesn’t exist in the text.
  • The Relational Workshop now allows a default of zero when looking up from a field containing dates.
  • When copy/pasting form objects, any procedure code in the objects will work properly right away. (Previously, you had to edit the code or the blueprint to get the code to work.)
  • The Open Corrections Window command (Panorama Help Window) did not work on one user’s computer, now it does.
  • The setdictionaryvalue statement can no longer be aborted before it finishes.
  • Documentation corrections from James Cook, Peter Newble.
  • Changed copyright date to 2024.

Installer cautions that 4442 is not compatible w/ MacOS Sonoma 14.4.
3901 is running on that machine (trying to update to 4442).
Did I miss something? Suggestions?
Thanks very much.

By “installer” do you mean the update window? If so, that message is wrong. Over the past year there have been a couple of reports (literally no more than 3) of the installer incorrectly reporting that the update is incompatible. Have not been able to figure out why.

I think you can tell it to install the update anyway. If you have any problem with that, you can download and install from the web site, Just click Download Trial and follow the instructions.
