Release 8.2 highlights

New Windows platforms

Windows 7 qualification and approval

This release has been qualified on the 64-bit and 32-bit versions of Windows 7 and has been certified under the Microsoft "Compatible with Windows 7" logo program.

Windows Server 2008 qualification and approval

This release has been qualified on the 64-bit and 32-bit versions of Windows Server 2008 and has been certified under the Microsoft "Works with Windows Server 2008" logo program.

New functionality

Full Unicode / UTF-8 encoding

For VIP7800, ANSI and VT-xxx emulations Glink now supports full Unicode for the internal screen image. This support presupposes UTF-8 for host communications.

Facelifting options

Two-tone background

An option for two-tone background colour allows you to configure a two-tone striped background making it easier for the eye to track lines in a form.

Enhancements for on-screen buttons

Options have been added for restricting the area in which Glink searches for on-screen texts to be converted into on-screen buttons. This applies to both standard buttons, labeled using the on-screen text, and the new custom buttons that you label yourself.

On-screen button font

The SET BUTTON FONT script command also sets the on-screen pushbutton fonts.

Drag and drop into the emulation window

You can now drag and drop texts into the Glink emulation window.

FTP enhancements

Drag and drop into the GlinkFTP windows

You can now drag and drop files and directories into the GlinkFTP local or remote file list windows.

Show remote hidden files

This option allows you to see UNIX/GCOS hidden files that start with a dot such as '.profile'.

TN3270 dynamic model

An option has been provided defining the TN3270 dynamic model terminal type that allows you to specify the emulation screen size for the alternate model.
