  • Rocket Releases TRUfusion Enterprise 7.9.5.0

    A new release of Rocket® TRUfusion™ Enterprise is now available.

    Rocket TRUfusion Enterprise 7.9.5.0 is a maintenance release that offers Windchill integration enhancements and additional software support, specifically:

    • Windchill integration enhancements around multiple-package jobs, which are jobs that comprise of several top-level objects. This allows the scope of CAD data to be exchanged to be flexible and extensive.
    • Support of DOCUFY CAx Quality Manager (DQM - re-branded from Heidelberg CAx Quality Manager (HQM)). This will help customer who need to automate CAD quality processes with their partners who use DQM.
    • While evaluating the impact of the widely reported vulnerability in the widely utilized Apache Java logging library Log4j2 package and usage in TRUfusion Enterprise, Rocket Software identified the use of Log4j version 2.13.1 for two of the optional integration modules for this product:
      • TRUfusion Enterprise Teamcenter Active Workspace Client Plugin
      • TRUfusion Enterprise Windchill Client Plugin

    This release has replaced the Log4j version 2.13.1 with the latest version of the library to eliminate the risk it poses. If you are using or intend to use either or both of the integration modules above, please plan to use TRUfusion Enterprise 7.9.5.0 and future releases. If you are using Teamcenter, Windchill, or both, please check the impact of this vulnerability and follow the appropriate mitigation steps published by Siemens and PTC where appropriate.

    You can find a complete list of enhancements and supported software in the Rocket TRUfusion Enterprise 7.9.5.0 release notes post on the Rocket Product Documentation Portal and attached to this email.

    Ready to upgrade now? If you have a current Rocket TRUfusion Enterprise maintenance agreement, you can download this new release from the Rocket Community Portal.

    If you’re using Rocket TRUfusion Enterprise, but don’t have an active maintenance agreement, we

    can help you get current. Email your account executive or contact Rocket Support and a Rocket representative will reach out to discuss your options.

    Thank you for entrusting your business to Rocket Software.

  • Uniface and the Log4J vulnerability

    Rocket Uniface and the LOG4J security hazard

     

    As soon as we became aware of the LOG4J security risk, we have investigated how it affects the Rocket Uniface product itself and Uniface production environments.

    We found that Uniface itself is not in anyway affected. Uniface does not ship or use the LOG4J logging functionality.

    The out of support Flow and View products contained an obsolete version 1 of Log4J. How this version is affected is not known.

    The Uniface Anywhere product does not install or use Log4J 

    Log4J is a separate plugin that users can download from a third party location and that can be added to the Tomcat server in a Rocket Uniface runtime environment. It is the responsibility of these users to take appropriate action to remove the risk. Uniface will continue to work as before when the updated plugin is used.

    Version 1.1.2 includes editing feature enhancements:

    • Code Lens (New) allows you to review your code and find references to variables, functions, or subroutines without leaving the editor.
    • Signature Help has been enhanced to automatically update the parameter lists of user-defined functions when editing the BASIC files that contain those functions.
    • Other Enhancements:
      • Three new statements have been added to Code Folding to further improve code readability for large blocks of code: WHILE and UNTIL clauses in loops as well as the LOCK statement.  The large code block surrounded by these statements can be folded into one line so that users can quickly go through the whole program.
      • All variables declared in an INCLUDE file are now referenced without error


    In addition to these enhancements MVVS 1.1.2 includes 38 bug fixes.
