Arizona 2017 - May 1st-4th
Release Date: Friday, November 01, 2013
This release introduces some new minor functionality requested by their users. It also includes a fix for a bug that can appear to be a registry corruption when doing a new install on a Windows system and another bug related to use of the SYSTEM(1035) or EPOCH() functions.
The name of the QMClient library for programs written using Microsoft C has changed to qmclilib.lib. The older qmcllbms.lib will continue to be included in the release for a while but developers are recommended to modify build procedures to use the new name. KnowledgeBase article 113 gives more details of the reasons underlying this change and is particularly important for users of Borland C.
QM now supports the S conversion code for Soundex.
When in edit values mode, the ED editor now shows the field and value positions as part of the line number. This can be suppressed by including NO.EV.POSITION in the $ED.OPTIONS VOC record.
The SED editor now has a NO.CASE.EXPLORE option in the &SED.OPTIONS& record to sequence items in an explore buffer using a case insensitive sort.
Inline prompts can now use quoted prompt strings to allow for restricted characters.
The query processor FROM option now supports the NONE keyword to ignore an active default select list.
The NO.PAGE option can be applied to all query processor commands so that, for example, the list of unfound records from a select operation can have pagination suppressed.

OpenQM At A Glance
OpenQM began in 1993 as an embedded database from Ladybridge Systems. It was released in its own right in mid-2001 on Windows systems and extended to Linux in 2003 and FreeBSD in 2004. In 2015, OpenQM announced a partnership with Zumasys to provide worldwide distribution, to create a comprehensive telephone support/maintenance program and to multi-tenant OpenQM on the Zumasys Cloud. This allows customers to quickly provision OpenQM servers in the cloud and benefit from a convenient, affordable monthly fee for the database, operating system and underlying infrastructure.

With Zumasys cloud services, customers can easily access the latest software and hardware technologies over the Web, allowing them to focus on growing their core business instead of managing their IT infrastructures.
