DataBasin 0.8

DataBasin 0.8 is out!

After several months of development and testing, many news:
  • DataBasin is now divided in its DataBasinKit framework which is LGPL'd and the application itself
  • (CSV writing) Support of empty fields in empty semi-joined objects through query parsing
  • (CSV writing) Support for writing fields in exact order as in user query, trough query parsing
  • Select Identify supports LIMIT
  • Customizable CSV file quoting and separator
  • Support for COUNT and aggregate queries
  • Object Inspector supports selection of values in cells
The most important news is the DataBasinKit separation.
The most important feature instead is DataBasin ability to parse the SOQL query and thus rearrange the output fields in CSV files not as Salesforce returns them but as the user requested them. The same feature allows related objects (. notation) to be null and retain the correct columns in the CSV file.

PRICE 1.3.0

Finally a new release of PRICE!

Get it here: https://sourceforge.net/projects/price/files/1.3.0/

This version improve Mac support quite a bit, Apple made several changes since 10.6 which caused malfunctions and weird symptoms (and which fix occasional stuff on 10.4 too). Both PowerPC and x86 work fine!

Many bug fixes, memory issues, bug in filters fixed.

  • Curves can now be manipulated with handles
  • Edge/tracing ignores the alpha channel
  • Preview supports scaling
  • Support by on-load conversion of alpha-first images
  • Greyscale and Inversion support 16bit images, highly experimental! The current approach looks unpractical to extend to all filters since the code-path needs to be doubled though.
Custom Edge Tracer, PRICE on GNUstep



Curves Editing, PRICE on MacOS
