Glink Professional & Enterprise Editions, update 8.0.2 is available
Glink Professional and Enterprise Editions, updates 8.0.2 are now available. Your local distributor can download them for installation on production sites. These updates are available free of charge to customers with a service contract for Glink Professional or Enterprise Edition. Customers with a service contract for Glink Standard Edition can upgrade at a special discount. Customers with no service contract must purchase a license upgrade.
This release is based on the R8.0 source tree, and is regarded as a maintenance update of that release.
The release is primarily a maintenance release that corrects errors detected in the 8.0.1 release.
The details of errors corrected are documented in the known error pages of our web server and are listed in the announcement for our technical list.
The release does have some minor functional improvements, briefly:
The Quality of Service (QoS) option is added as part of an investigation we are doing to see if Glink can benefit from QoS. At the moment the options displayed there are the ones that are standard in Windows, and they are not suitable for use asis. Selecting one of them may cause problems if you are using a VPN. This feature will be extended and documented as we gain experience with networks offering QoS.
Many of the other features are either 3270 emulation functions, or features that allow keyboard configuration to be similar to other 'industry standard' 3270 emulations.
The 'learn' improvements refer to the Glink automatic script generation feature, whereby you can record quite a complicated dialog, and have it generated as a script that gives more functionality than a simple macro would have. You will note that 'learn' has been added to the default toolbar.
GlinkWeb is an extension to the Glink product family that gives web users access to mainframe applications from their browsers, without the need for additional software on the client workstation.Read more
