Following on from my previous News post...
It seems we're back to where we were a few months ago.
Suddenly some Authenticated Member's posts are ending up in the Moderation queue. AGAIN!

Sourceforge posts issue


Just became aware of another issue with Sourceforge forums and account permissions.

Forum Permissions somehow reset themselves to READ only for Members and Authenticated users - including my Admin account.
Don't get why this happened nor understand how new posts were created if this was the case.
This has affected quite a few of you it seems from the emails I've received.

I have changed Permissions back to what they were and will keep an eye on things....... read more

It's still not happening....


As much as we would like to upload our latest uniCenta oPOS version 3.91 to Sourceforge for you all - we've been trying several times a day since 14 July - we're just not able to do it.
Can't even upload the README_first.txt to let you know we're a bit stuck.... It just isn't happening.

Even though it's sad that Sourceforge is going through a tough time as ithey provide a great service to us all this is the sixth time this year, 2015, and we keep hitting the wall for one reason or another.
We need to find a way around the problem.... read more

uniCenta oPOS v3.91


Despite Sourceforge's alleged recovery from their storage issues last week we still cannot upload latest v3.91 releases - we have Widnows; Linux and Mac OS X completed and ready - all good to go!

If problem persists we will come up with an alternative download option in next few days.

uniCenta oPOS v3.91 Release - suspended

I pulled the 3.91 release immediately I saw posts in the forum.
They show critical issues so I reverted back to 3.90 as default release.

The problem lay with Java 1.8 JRE run-time and mainly affects reports.
I take the view that what goes in eventually needs to come out as reporting is such a crucial function of uniCenta oPOS

Aim is to resolve this as quick as possible and push out a new release before the weekend is over.... read more

Still having to moderate all forums - don't know why - even though it's all switched off and all authorised members can (supposedly) read, write & amend posts

uniCenta participation in its Community


There have been a few posts and direct PM's in the last week as to why uniCenta is now moderting each post before it surfaces in our Community Forums.
Explanation is given in our earlier News post.

The simple reason is we are because...; our forums are here for uniCenta oPOS

Apart from our Adminstrator account being compromised (hacked) it's also because there have been various attempts to hijack our forums for other purposes.
This has not been an entirely bad thing by the way as it means it has helped us re-focus on providing what was originally started and that is; a forum for uniCenta oPOS issues.... read more

v3.80 Critical issue... Resolved

The Critical issue affecting fresh uniCenta oPOS v3.80 Apache Derby based installs has been resolved.

We found it to be caused by the latest Apache Derby derby.jar driver packaged with v3.80

Turns out that Apache modified the IDENTITY function (it's used for the TicketID and PickupID fields in uniCenta oPOS) sequential numbering behaviour to align with SQL-92 requirements.

We will revert back to Apache Derby 10.10.2 derby.jar A new build will be available in the next few days.... read more
