Transition from the previous version to the version 8.3.9
- Conversion of configurations, infobases, external data processors and external reports is not required during the transition from the previous version to the version 8.3.9.
- Some features that are added in version 8.3.9 do not support compatibility mode. When you toggle the compatibility mode, the structure of some database objects is changed. To be able to work with the infobase using a previous platform version, you have to turn the compatibility mode on.
- In the file mode, queries are optimized for scenarios where an applied solution has separators but actually contains a single data area.
To apply this optimization to an existing infobase, perform infobase verification and repair with the Reindex infobase tables check box selected.
Once the restructuring is completed, the optimization is applied to all restructured objects.
- The index of the actual action period table of a calculation register is complemented by the start date and end date fields, and the index is now clustered. This reduces the chance of lock escalation to the table level when writing record sets of calculation registers that support action period.
For the chart of calculation types table that stores serial numbers of calculation type displacements, a nonunique index by displacement number is implemented. As a result, simultaneous editing of a single chart of calculation types in different data areas of a separated infobase never requires waiting for lock releases.
To apply this optimization to existing infobases, perform the infobase verification and repair operation with the Restructure infobase tables option selected.
