More Info



Release Date: Thursday, December 17, 2015

Release 3.4-4 of the QM Multivalue Database is now available for download from www.openqm-zumasys.com/downloads or www.openqm.com/downloads.htm .


For improved compatibility with other products, if field 3 of a VOC Q-pointer is null, QM now assumes VOC by default.

The CREATE.DICT.NO.CASE mode of the OPTION command can be used to make CREATE.FILE create dictionaries with case insensitive ids. The NO.CASE option of the CREATE.FILE command has also been extended to allow selection of case insensitivity for the data and/or dictionary portions of the file.

The SEARCH command has been extended to add a DISPLAY option that shows each line that contains any of the search strings. When this option is used, a select list is only created if the TO option is also used.

The query processor SORTED.SAMPLE keyword is similar to the SAMPLE keyword but is applied after sorting.

A new QMBasic $MODE setting, EXECUTE.CLEARLIST, has been added to improve compatibility with other products regarding how the default select list is handled by the EXECUTE statement.

As an aid to debugging programs, the QMBasic PDUMP statement creates a process dump file of the process in which it is executed.

The QMBasic OPENTEMP statement has been extended to create the file in the QM temporary directory if the pathname is omitted or is a null string.

The QMClient API now supports sequential file processing.

The QMClient API QMTxn() function can now commit non-durable transactions.

The WEBSVC command and !CALLHTTP class module can be used to implement simple web services.

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.

Zumasys helps companies of every size transition their infrastructure and applications to the cloud. 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.
