Just a quick note to announce some updates to the OpenVista project. Over the weekend the team posted some new releases on the sf.net project site.
- OpenVista CIS has been updated to 0.9.1. The changes are listed in the NEWS file of the downloads, as well as the CHANGES section of the sf.net release notes.
- Accordingly, the Gtk# runtime and sources have been updated. Please note the IMPORTANT versioning scheme changes which you can read about via sf.net. If you're running CIS on Windows, be certain you uninstall the older Gtk# libraries and install the latest.
- Lastly, we've prepared a self contained OpenVista Appliance. This Appliance includes the acclaimed GT.M database engine, OpenVista Server 1.0 and CIS 0.9.1. It's all running on Xubuntu Linux and does not require Windows or even a network connection to give OpenVista Server and CIS a try.
The Appliance can also be used as an OpenVista Server while you run CIS on a remote workstation (Windows or Linux). Be sure to review the README file. The Appliance requires 7zip to decompress the archive and the free VMWare player to run. The decompressed virtual machine is about 3.5GB, while the download is about 700MB.
