DataFlex Newsletter February

Dear all

It’s already February and we’re halfway through winter. The light is returning and we start
by …

… in good time to announce that the DataFlex EDUC 2024 conference will be held in Split, Croatia on the 10th and 11th of October. There will be workshop trainings 2 days before (i.e. 8 and 9 October). Mark your calendars and keep an eye on the conference website, which will be updated as plans are finalized.

DataFlex 2024 Release Candidate (RC) has been released for final testing. You can read about the news here. Please note that DataFlex 2024 RC requires licence codes in the same way as the full release. We will send them out to our DataFlex customers with renewal licenses.

DataFlex Reports v2024 beta 2 is available for download for testing. For more information – click on the following link. New codes will be sent out for version 2024 when it is released.

Important information about Microsoft Defender and DataFlex 19.1 or higher
Microsoft Defender is an antivirus programme that runs on almost all servers and many PCs and receives regular updates from Microsoft.

Since an update in late December, DataFlex programs (translated by DF Studio) have been flagged as virus-infected and quarantined. Currently, you have to ask MS Defender to refrain from scanning the programme folder.

Data Access has fixed this in the upcoming DataFlex version 2024 and is currently testing a fix for DataFlex versions 19.1, 20.0, 20.1 and 23.0. As soon as testing is finalized, these updates will be made available.

Recommendation of the month: Git and version control in DataFlex.

“The video ‘Efficient version control with Git in DataFlex’ covers the essentials as well as some advanced features, making it perfect for junior developers like myself who want to improve their version control skills quickly.”
