  • support for Harbour 3.0
  • support for xHarbour 1.2.1 Rev. 9382 (SVN snapshot dated 18.07.2011)

Version 5.0.3.0 (March 23th, 2011)

The following features/bug fixes have been introduced:
  • UNICODE databases support for xHarbour and Harbour applications
    - new MedLogin() function parameter specifies if the character data should travel from/to application as UNICODE
    - ability to work on UNICODE database from applications using different codepages - multilingual applications working on common database
    - automatic character data conversion from application codepage to database (UNICODE) codepage
    - MedSetDefColEnc() function defines the default database type (encoding format) for character values
    - extended MedColAdd() function allows definition of the encoding method to be used in added character columns
    - new or modified MedSqlParA(), MedSqlParEx(), MedSetSqlEnc() functions allow the precise control over the encoding method used for SQL queries and their parameters

  • communication protocol has been rewritten to support messages longer than 64 KB which removes many limitations present in the previous versions:
    - communication buffer has been extended from 64 KB to 512 KB, which allows faster communication and sending to application more records in one message
    - maximum record size has been extended from 64 KB to 512 KB
    - maximum character column size has been extended to 64 KB (subject to database limitations)
    - maximum size of parameters defined with MedSqlPar/A/Ex functions has been extended from 32 KB to 256 KB
    - maximum SQL query text has been extended from 20 KB to 512 KB (including parameters)
    - new MedClpComp() function can be used to enforce the old limits in xHarbour/Harbour applications - usefull if CA-Clipper applications access the same database

  • version of Mediator server for MySQL using the native client access library for Windows and Linux (free ODBC version is still available)

  • version of Mediator server for PostgreSQL using the native client access library for Windows and Linux

  • additional session monitoring features in mmt.exe program:
    - monitoring of the command being executed
    - monitoring of the previously executed command
    - monitoring of the session memory usage

  • option for Mediator for Oracle server which allows permanent table deletion


Version 4.3.3.1 (October 10th, 2010)

The following features/bug fixes have been introduced:
  • New MedPrepStmt(), MedExecStmt(), MedFreeStmt() functions allow executing prepared SQL statements

  • New MedNoGoTop() function allows optimization by eliminating the unnecessary GO TOP statements

  • New MedLobNew(), MedLobClse(), MedLobDel(), MedLobOpen(), MedLobRead(), MedLobWrt(), MedLobNull(), MedLobErr() - experimental support for handling variable-length large fields (BLOB/CLOB) for Oracle and MS SQL

  • MS SQL - new option that allows switching of filtering the DELETED records from database server to Mediator server. This can be used as a workaround in rare cases when MS SQL optimizer chooses incorrect execution plan for Mediator queries. This can happen on tables on which external SQL statements are executed. The statistics collected when executing external SQLs can direct optimizer to choose very inefficent plan, which results in a large slow-down of executed Mediator queries.

  • MMT - added information about the last command executed within a session

  • xbAPI/xhbcom.dll - the list of accepted method parameters extended to suport VARIANT containing VARIANT. Sample value passed in this way is a date value passed from PHP script

  • xbAPI/Delphi - introduced UNICODE support on the Delphi application level, support for Delphi2009

  • xbAPI - fixed small memory leak related to allocated table aliases

  • PostgreSQL fix - creating tables and deleting indexes in non-default schemas

  • recommended sample linking scripts changed to use multithreaded libraries for VC and Borland. Important, because of possible problems resulting from using non-serialized heap in multithreaded application: hang-ups, GPFs, etc. Application containing Mediator libraries is always multithreaded because of the automatically started auxiliary thread.

  • other minor fixes


Version 4.3.2.0 (February 26th, 2010)

The following features/bug fixes have been introduced:
  • Mediator client libraries for Harbour 2.0 for Windows and Linux

  • Fix in OrdKeyVal() function - selected codepage conversions are now properly applied to the returned value

  • Fix in codepage conversions of the values read and written from/to MEMO fields. For Clipper 5.3, Harbour and xHarbour conversion was not done, so the improper characters where seen from external SQL tools when accesssing Mediator MEMO data. The fix leaves the tables created with previous Mediator versions without MEMO conversions, while on the tables created with version 4.3.0.0 and later codepage conversions work as expected

  • New MedSqlPTrm() function allows turning on the automatic trimming of the trailing spaces from SQL query parameters

  • Other small fixes
