The latest news about product updates and everything else related to Fanurio.
October 09, 2008
Today we've released version 1.11.3, a patch for version 1.11. Usually, we don't release patch versions unless they are very important and this version improves data security.
You can upgrade your copy by clicking Help > Check for Updates in the menu.
Fanurio now checks if it can connect to the database each time it is started. If there is something wrong with the database, Fanurio will alert you and we'll probably be able to investigate and fix the problem. We've also increased the size of the log file and its backup to 2 MB (a total of 4 MB) to make sure all errors are saved. Previously the log file was only 0.5 MB.
If your computer is closed unexpectedly, the database will not delete its lock file and when restarted, it may complain that it cannot connect. This is a common situation when checking the database connection is useful.
The rest of the changes are documented in the release notes.
Since this patch is mainly about data security, I would like to remind you that you can keep automatic backups with Fanurio. It's recommended to keep at least five copies.
P.S. If you haven't voted for us at the Epsilon Award yet, you still have time until October 27th.
