As our product line evolves, we strive to keep up-to-date with IBM OS/400 release levels while giving you enough time to plan for these changes. This allows us to use current technologies in our products and to make those technologies accessible to you from within our products.
Please note that we’re able to provide full support for approximately the last five releases. If you’re still running WebSmart 10.2 or older, we recommend you make plans to upgrade as soon as possible.
In last week’s WebSmart ILE 10.8 webinar (which is available for on-demand viewing), we introduced some new IDE shortcuts such as CTRL+W to close the current tab. We also mentioned that we’d publish a more comprehensive list, including F6 to generate and F9 to format PML.
The past few WebSmart ILE releases have introduced some exciting new features and we’re looking forward to sharing them with you. If you’re running WebSmart ILE 10.8 or thinking of upgrading, I encourage you to attend our webinar on September 10 at 2pm EDT: New WebSmart ILE 10.8 includes inline RPG editing and more.
We’ll show you the latest new features, including:
How to code inline RPG in the IDE
JSON manipulation to more efficiently use web services
Mobile enhancements: HTML5 charts and a mobile reflow template
If your WebSmart and Presto programs use SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) then you most likely installed an SSL certificate on your server. Browsers recently started phasing out a common method of encryption (called SHA-1), which may be causing errors in browsers when users visit your site. These errors typically occur in Chrome and Firefox, even when the certificate is valid.
WebSmart 10.8 is now available for download from myBCDsoftware.com and our public website. This release includes several new features for the ILE edition, such as inline RPG editing, that give programmers more flexibility when developing web applications. Staying up-to-date with current technologies is also important so we updated the versions of SmartCharts and jQuery that both editions of WebSmart use.
The page has instructions on how to disable the weak RC4 ciphers for the IBM i. We recommend checking out the article in order to make sure your Clover, Nexus, Presto and WebSmart ILE/PHP Apache servers with SSL enabled are secured.
Please note that we’re able to provide full support for approximately the last three releases. If you’re still running WebSmart 10.0 or older, we recommend you make plans to upgrade as soon as possible.
