• UniVerse 12.2.1, U2 DB Tools 4.5.0 and U2 Common Clients 5.3.0 have landed!!

    The Rocket MultiValue team is very excited to announce the release of UniVerse 12.2.1, U2 DB Tools 4.5.0 and U2 Common Clients 5.3.0 on October 18th, 2022. 

    UniVerse has always been efficient and inexpensive to operate delivering a quality data application server that powers thousands of business-critical operations across numerous industries. UniVerse 12 brings with it the ability to handle heavy workloads and reduce the risk of file corruption.  With the two-process architecture of UniVerse 12, customers will see accelerated transaction performance and improved data integrity. 

    UniVerse 12.2.1 is beta group and focus group tested and is now “ready for release”

    UniVerse 12.2.1 adds many new features to an already feature rich UniVerse 12 and is beta and focus group tested to ensure the quality and standards meet our customers’ expectations.  Two key new features are the 3rd mode (system buffer on/off) for enhanced usability and UV BASIC Profiling for application performance analysis.

    System Buffer On/Off – Understanding that some customers do not have a need for running the recoverable file system (RFS) and want to take advantage of some of the new functionality in UV 12 we have added the ability to upgrade and run in single-process mode.  With the system buffer off, the recoverable file system (RFS) functionality is disabled, and you will see performance similar to previous versions of UniVerse.

    UV BASIC Profiling – This new feature provides application performance analysis and insight to help you determine bottlenecks and performance improvement areas in your applications.  BASIC Profiling has two profiling process control methods, two profiling data formats, and two methods of measurement. 

    And that’s not all!  UniVerse 12.2.1 contains 110 enhancements and 346 bug fixes including:

    • Features that bring v12.2.1 in sync with v11.3:
      • Python v3.9 upgrade
      • Preserve Python modules and path files
      • OpenSSL upgrade to v1.1.1n (TLSv1.3 support)
      • UTC Datetime support
      • Geospatial enhancements
      • Replication of sequential I/O

    • BASIC compiler directive
    • UVNET access to 12.2.1 from 11.3.x
