Enable 6.0.1 released, preparing for Enable 6.5
Posted by Gian Luca De Bonis on 03 May 2016 10:38 AM

We have just released Enable 6.0.1 (6.0.1.60502) - see the download section for the link.

It is just a fix to the current Enable 6 GA release, and affects Designer - where there is no previous Enable version installed. There is no need to update to 6.0.1 if you are not experiencing this problem.

We are now preparing for Enable 6.5. It’s just a service pack that will contain:

  • the current version of the engine, to be compatible across all our tools and support the latest multilingual database features
  • a refresh of the tools
  • several updates to the RTL engine
  • support for PB12.6 latest EBF (the famous "progma_pack" build)

We expect to release Enable 6.5 during this month.

Enable 6 beta released!
Posted by Gian Luca De Bonis on 03 March 2015 01:18 AM

After a very long gestation, due mainly to the 64 bits deployment and to the integration of the "Enable Tools" (Enable, Customization Studio, Reporting Studio), we have just released the first drop of Enable 6 (6.0.0.50302).

This version uses the new engine 2015021 that has the following features:

  • supports compression – when the ENA is saved with Enable Author it will be automatically compressed (and decompressed on the fly, in memory, upon opening)
  • supports PB 9 to 12.6 (and Appeon web as usual)
  • supports the new ENA format, that contains reports and repository tables (requires Reporting Studio to edit them)
  • has a new simplified structure
  • supports 64 bits deployment

Other than the engine, the tools have the following features:

  • Support for XLSX format for export/import translations
  • Simplified activation key process, with on-line processing (e-mail activation will be available)
  • New Designer, with several fixes and improvements
  • Support for longer context names

This version is to be considered beta but is supported and can be used in production. It's reserved to users with Premium Support.

We expect to release the GA later on this month.

See the download section for the download link - remember to login first, as the build is reserved to Premium Support customers.

Announcing Enable 6.0 with PB12.6 support
Posted by Gian Luca De Bonis on 26 September 2014 01:40 PM

Dear users,

SAP has just publicly released PB 12.6, and so we are preparing for Enable 6.0 release. You can already use Enable obfuscated engine with PB12.6 - just migrate it with the rest of the application to PB12.6.

This is our plan: 

  • The engine with PB12.6 support will be released soon. This will support PB12.6 (32-bit only), but not ENA compression (a new engine will be released later on)
  • Reporting Studio 2014 will be released next week, and Enable 6.0 will follow, by end of October 2014.

New features:

  • Support for PB12.6 - 32 bits only
  • New version of the Excel export format, that removes the row number limitation that we had in the past
  • Improvements on Designer, and new (small) improvements to make editing smoother for end users (and the new Graph plugin)
  • Designer will not be shared with other tools (Customization Studio and Reporting Studio), to make updates smoother
  • New engine, supporting all the new features of Reporting Studio; this is a technology update, but basically allows Enable users to use reports created by Reporting Studio by using the same engine and the same ENA file
  • ENA file automatic compression (can be disabled)

Thanks and kind regards, GLDB
