PSE 1.7 Released
DATADVANCE development team is pleased to announce the release of PSE 1.7.
This is the new major version of PSE with a lot of added features compared to previous 1.6, great number of bugfixes and both stability and performance improvements. Some of the release highlights include:
- The implementation of the project concept in PSE allowing better data and solutions management. A project is a portable collection of workflows and reports (see below) sharing one common data storage. Consequently, a workflow is no longer a separate entity - it always exists within a project. Also, PSE already supports projects opened from a Windows network path.
- New approach to the workflow results analysis based on PSE reports — a new type of document which stores both the data and its presentation. The back-end for this update is the new database mechanism which allows to process significantly greater amounts of data generated by the workflow.
- A complete redesign of the graphical user interface: besides the new visual appearance, it also brings such interface features as the workflow outline view on the Edit screen, block options configuration panel which is a more efficient and stable replacement for the option-to-port mapping, project interface support, handy block and port name filtering in the connectivity dialog and numerous usability improvements in block configuration.
In PSE 1.7, an emphasis was placed on reworking the PSE internals to maintain binary compatibility with next releases. Starting with this version, PSE projects, saved workflows and reports will be compatible with newer versions. The team is currently working to also provide full backwards compatibility on the scripting level, which is to be added in one of the nearest releases.
