Omnis Studio 11 Patch Release – Exciting Enhancements and Fixes

We recently released the latest patch release for Omnis Studio 11 – Rev 35659. This update brings several exciting enhancements and bug fixes, with the most notable additions being support for macOS Sonoma and enhanced security for your deployed libraries. Here’s a quick overview of what you can expect from this new patch release:

macOS Sonoma Support

Omnis Studio 11 now fully supports macOS Sonoma, ensuring that you can seamlessly run your Omnis applications on the latest Apple operating system.

Class Locking and Library Conversion

In order to enhance the integrity and security of deployed Omnis Studio libraries, the mechanism used to lock classes in a private library has changed in Omnis Studio 11 Revision 35659. Consequently, all libraries opened in Omnis Studio 11 revision 35659 will require conversion, including libraries created with all prior revisions of Omnis Studio 11 – the library conversion process is irreversible; therefore you should make a secure backup of all libraries before opening them in Omnis Studio 11 Revision 35659.

Feature Enhancements

The following enhancements have been added to revision 35659 of Omnis Studio 11 enhancing the JavaScript and Window components:

  • JavaScript Components
    All JS Camera events now have an additional pError param which reports any possible errors.
    Two new properties $choosefilesbuttontextpos and $choosefilesiconid have been added to the JS File component to allow more control over how the UI is displayed in Upload mode of the control.
    A new property $reordermode has been added to the JS Native List component to allow end users to reorder rows within the list.
  • Window Components
    A new event evColumnDividerMoved has been added to the Complex Grid control to report when a grid divider has been dragged.
    The $splitbuttonbars property has been added to Toolbar classes to allow you to split radio button groups into individual button items.
    Support for the ‘use-mock-keychain’ CEF switch has been added to the “obrowser” section of the Omnis Configuration file (config.json) to manage the Chromium Safe Storage Prompt shown when using oBrowser on macOS.
  • Omnis Environment
    A new item called monitorDockKeyEventsInfoPrompt has been added to the “macOS” section of the Configuration file (config.json) to manage the Keystroke Receiving Prompt on macOS.
  • OW3 Worker Objects
    The $oauth2state property has been added to the OAUTH2 Worker Object to allow you to append custom content to the state query string parameter.
    Also a new property $allowpathinuri has been added to the SMTP Worker Object to allow a path in the URI.
  • Functions
    We added a new parameter wCenterImg to the OIMAGE.$makeqrcode function to allow you to add an icon image to the center of the generated QR code.
    A new parameter asnumber has been added to the rnd() function to force Omnis to return a Number, rather than a Character value.
    You can now return a reference to the field under the mouse in a Complex grid using a new parameter tablefield with the mouseover() function.
    The $filepath property has been added to the FileOps object to allow you to obtain a path to the file associated with the object.
  • Online Documentation
    All the enhancements in Revision 35659 of Omnis Studio (and the previous revision 35439) are highlighted in yellow in the online documentation to show you what has been added.
