Thoroughbred® Release Notes V8.8.0Thoroughbred® Release Notes V8.8.0
Version 8.8.0 is an enhancement release based on comments and suggestions we have received from the Thoroughbred community; both through the Thoroughbred mail-list forum and our support department. A few highlights are:
Installation Notes VIP and TbredComm
When installing TbredComm or VIP select the appropriate setup.exe.
The above setups will first determine if any Microsoft pre-requisites are required on the target system. If they are you will be prompted to install them. This is required. When this phase of the installation is complete, the Thoroughbred TbredComm or VIP installation will automatically run.
When installing on Windows 8 and Server 2012 shortcuts are created on the Metro interface. Clicking on a shortcut will launch the TbredComm/WorkStation Manager in the Desktop interface.
TbredComm now sets the UNIX/Linux TERM variable to ‘tbredcom’. This requires a new terminfo entry. The files are included with all UNIX/Linux 8.8.0 (and higher) Basic installs. The standard install puts these files in lib/t in your Basic home directory. These files need to be copied into /usr/share/terminfo/t or /usr/lib/terminfo/t depending on your UNIX/Linux distribution.
If the TERM variable is being set by a shell command after TbredComm has started, that command should be changed to set TERM=tbredcom.
Installation Notes TS Environment™ for Windows
There is only one install package for TS Environment for Windows. The installation process will determine the target platform and install accordingly. The tbsetup.ini file is no longer required.
Installation Notes TS Network Basic with DataServer™
There is only one install package for Network Basic with DataServer. The installation process will determine the target platform and install accordingly. The tbsetup.ini file is no longer required.
When reporting problems please be sure to include the build/version number and the operating system you are experiencing the problem on. If applicable, supply the error number, program name, and the statement where the error occurred.
The Thoroughbred Basic version and date can be accessed using the DUMP VERSION directive. From Basic Console Mode type in DUMP VERSION and press the Enter key.
The OPENworkshop version number and release date are available from the Version Manager on the System Administration Menu. To verify the build date of a specific program simply list line 10 of any OWS program (i.e. "OO").
