PS. I’m trying to release version 1.4 before the Progress Exchange in a week. Please help me test the nightly build to get it stable.


Updates to nightly builds

May 28th, 2008 1 comment

The nightly build contains several important new features that need testing. Please focus your attention on the following:

  • Filtering of the queue list. The following wildcard characters are implemented: ? for a single character, * for zero or more characters. Grouping is possible with (, | and ) like this: q.*.(fault|rme).
  • Sending and saving of .esbmsg files. These files can contain a multi part message in one file, as well as store message headers and properties. They can be edited with an Xml editor and Sonic Workbench has a GUI editor for these files. You can save .esbmsg files by selecting the relevant filetype in the save dialog.

Please test the nightly build thoroughly and send me your findings. The sooner this gets tested properly, the sooner I can release version 1.4 to the general public.

As a side-note: Nightly sourcecode snapshots are now available on the Download page.

I just released version 1.3 of Sonic Message Manager. This release contains the following changes (among some minor bugfixes):

  • Text messages are now formatted as Xml if possible;
  • The broker selection combo box only displays brokers that are started and on-line;
  • Improved message sending speed, particularly on high-latency networks.

This release has also be posted on the Sonic Code Share so feel free to download it and send me your patches to the source code. Please report any problems you may have or features you would like to see in the comments or e-mail me directly.
