Changes Are Afoot for OpenVMS CustomersMay 29, 2020
Announcing Synergy/DE 11.1.1dJune 9, 2020
We are pleased to announce the release of a new version of CodeGen.
The primary reason for this release is that we realized that the installations for the last several releases were incorrectly signed, resulting in Windows SmartScreen reporting the installation as risky, and doing its level best to discourage you from proceeding.
The affected versions of the installer were versions V5.5.1 to V5.5.4. But apparently people don’t pay too much attention to Windows SmartScreen warnings, because I know there have been lots of CodeGen installations of the affected versions, and not a single person reported the issue! That’s pretty scary, and as software developers, we really should know better! With one exception (Jeff Greene), I don’t know who you are, but YOU know who you are!
The issue turned out to be related to the fact that we have been working from home for the last three months, thanks to COVID-19, and the code-signing process on my home development system was silently selecting the wrong signing certificate! Sorry about that! But rest assured, we restored normality with the 5.5.5 installer, which is, once again, signed with the correct code-signing certificate.
Oh, and if you are looking for new features, we also made all method loop expansion tokens available in parameter loops.
This version of CodeGen is built with Synergy/DE 11.1.1c, needs a minimum of version 10.1.1 to operate, and can be downloaded here.
