5.1 is coming

Due to some important issues with the new REALSQLDatabase plug-in, we are going to release 5.1 around the middle of the month.

If you have to go through all of the database testing again, please consider using the current version of SQLite, which is 3.6.20. It has quite a few bug fixes, some of which may address the problems in REALbasic 2009r5.

In the meantime, can you make r4 available? It's not in the download area.

REAL Software said...

If your license key includes R4 all you need to do is log into your account on our website. You will then be able to download all versions of REALbasic that your key is eligible for.

Acutally, R5 does have SQLite 3.6.20 as the following code shows:

Dim r As New REALSQLDatabase
If r.Connect Then
Dim rs As RecordSet
rs = r.SQLSelect("SELECT sqlite_version()")
MsgBox rs.IdxField(1).StringValue
End If

Then I must be an idiot, because if it's there, I don't see it ... My account, downloads, order history (11/27/09) ... every link I could see. No r4.

If you go to the downloads page and are logged into your account there is a link to view Previous Versions.

Thank you for jumping on this so quickly. :) Keep up the good work.

(Necessary countermeasure for the anonymous complaint, sure to show up sooner or later, about how you promised us Cocoa umpteen years ago and still haven't delivered :p )

Thanks Paul. The release notes specified 3.6.17 which I didn't question.

Thank you REAL Software for including version 3.6.20 of SQLite, moving quickly to address serious issues with 2009r5, and sharing your intention to release 2009r5.1 soon.

Can you provide some more information on what the problem with the REALSQLDatabase plug-in is so those of us using r5 will know what to look out for.

Based on the troubles I've had I highly recommend NOT using r5 at all until these serious issues are corrected.

It would be nice to know what issues are being addressed - I'm sending Feedback reports as I find 'em! I can't wait to play with 3.6.20 to see if Foreign Key support works!
