The AppLife Update Blog
A complete solution for maintaining deployed software on the Windows platform
AppLife Update 5.1 was released today. Some new features added includes:
- Improved Run SQL Query Action
The new Run SQL Query action now supports the use of the GO statement in SQL added directly to the action editor. GO has always been supported in linked query files, but not in directly entered SQL text. This is significant as the only place Shared Properties are supported is within SQL entered directly in the action editor.
- Pre/Post Build Script Update Version Variable Definition
Pre/Post build scripting now has access to the Update Version being built within the scripts. This is especially useful when local paths include the version being built and scripting around those file paths must take place before or after creating a new update.
- New Shared Property Action Options
There are two new options when creating a Shared Property through the Set Shared Property action. Number (double) values can now be created. Also, the Update Publish Date/Time is available to be assigned to a Shared Property.
- New Display Property option on the Execute MSI Action
The text displayed to the user during the execution of an MSI using the Execute MSI action is now configurable.
- Added API Access to Update Summary Text
Update Summary text from any locale’ can be accessed through the Update Controller API.
