    Posted an A80 ABS patch for D3 Linux and D3 AIX 10.2 on the Rocket Community portal.  The two new fixes included in this patch from the last ABS patch posted for D3 Linux and D3 AIX 10.2 are:
    • Corrects a problem where a RETURN statement that had no prior GOSUB or CALL did not produce a runtime error. 
    • Corrects a problem with Update Protection which could cause GFEs when using DB-PAUSE under certain conditions.

    Posted an F9 Flash patch for D3 Linux 10.2 on the Rocket Community portal.  This patch corrects a problem where a file variable matrix element was not closed when the entire matrix was assigned to a string value which would cause a FlashBASIC program to terminate prematurely with an 'Exceeded the maximum number of 32767 file opens !' error.

    Monitor patch M5 was just posted today for D3 Linux 10.3.3:

    Patch: Monitor Patch M5

    Corrects a problem with OSFI, which could cause a RFSE when continuing to access a file after the server timeout period but before the port completely wrapped up.

    Corrects a problem introduced by the fix D3-68186, that would cause signals not to be handled properly when connecting via Python.

    An M16 monitor patch for D3 Linux 10.2 was just posted to the Rocket Community Portal D3 Downloads section. From the patch notes:

    D3-69608, M16, Corrected a problem with the pib and/or interface that was inefficient and taking too much time. This impacts logoff, spooler operations, startup and shutdown.

    Folks, this is a good one. When I was testing it I saw a significant improvement in those areas. The patch was originally made to address instances where jobs were not leaving the PEQS print job queue in a timely fashion in cases where there are hundreds of shared printers defined. I saw an improvement where the delay is now less than a third of what it was before M16. The other areas ( logoff, startup, shutdown ) are collateral benefit.

    This patch will soon be available for D3 Linux 10.3.3 as M6, but we're still testing it. Please note that this patch is for D3 Linux only, not D3 Windows, and I'm not sure about D3 AIX.

    without a shadow of a doubt, best patch ever released, changed life in relation to "disconnection", much more stable and faster when finishing processes

    Yes, M16 introduced a lot of improvements. But while testing the M6 patch for 10.3.3, we found a vulnerability that also affected M16, so we pulled M16 and are currently testing M17 which should be posted in a very short time. If you're already running M16, I see no reason to back it out as the chances of hitting the vulnerability are REALLY small. But if you haven't loaded M16 yet, I would recommend that you wait for M17 to hit RCP.

    And M6 has just been posted for D3 Linux 10.3.3!!

    And  monitor patch M6 for D3 Linux 10.3.3 is now posted in the Rocket Customer Portal (RCP)!!!

    Here's the current patch levels for D3 Linux 10.3.3:


    D3 Linux 10.3.3: Monitor M6, ABS A10, D3_setup_sub
    *Note that D3_setup_sub will allow D3 Linux 10.3.3 installation on Rocky and Alma Linux v8.x

    M16 patch notes:

    Patch: Monitor Patch M6

    Corrects a problem with the pib and/or interface that was inefficient and taking too much time. This impacts logoff, spooler operations, startup and shutdown.

    Corrects a problem with a Dimension array element being passed as a parameter to a % function that could cause an abort if that array element is the last BASIC descriptor in a frame.

    Corrects a problem with Python, which prevented OS directories from being opened via OSFI.

    Adds the ability for BASIC to call the AES256 encryption mechanisms as well, not just from encrypt-file.


    Again, this has some significant timing improvements for D3!!

    Hi Brian,

    Just installed the M17 monitor patch for 10.2 and noticed that when I "Install with current settings" it does so AND boots the D3 server, has it always booted upon installing?
