Release notes for SQL or ChartDirector?

A client recently asked what is new in SQL and ChartDirector plugin. This question is not easy to answer. First we have a lot of shared code between our plugins. The picture handling, the string handling, the file access and a lot of other key areas as common between plugins. A fix for one plugin, fixes it for all. But a few things are unique to plugins. So I found this items for this year:
ChartDirector plugin changes:
  • Overloaded most ChartDirector plugin functions to take color values in addition to integer color values. This should make use in Real Studio easier for most people.
  • The addCustomAggregateLabel, addCustomDataLabel, addCustomGroupLabel methods of the CDLayerMBS class now return the textbox they create.
  • Updated picture functions to work with Cocoa and Web Edition.
SQL Plugin changes:
  • Updated to SQLAPI++ from 3.7.33 to 3.8.1.
  • Added SQLValueMBS.setAsDate and SQLValueReadMBS.asDate.
  • Added SQLPreparedStatementMBS class so you can use prepared statements with our SQL Plugin, too.
  • Added FetchFirst, FetchLast and FetchPrior to SQLCommandMBS class.
  • Fixed SQLDatabaseMBS.Connect method for console targets.
  • Renamed SQLDatabaseMBS.GetConnecton to GetConnection.
Both plugins run very stable and we are very happy with them. I hope you also enjoy them. If you want to know what ChartDirector can do for you, maybe it's time to visit the gallery. For our SQL Plugin, you find details on the SQL Plugin website. The biggest plugin in space...
