Synergex Hackathon 2021 Was Out of This WorldDecember 9, 2021
Synergex is pleased to announce the immediate availability of Synergy/DE 11.1.1i on Windows, Linux, IBM AIX, Oracle Solaris, and OpenVMS. Synergy/DE 11.1.1i is a quality release that includes a wide range of improvements across most of the Synergy product line, and we strongly encourage all Synergy developers to review the release notes (available in the Synergy Resource Center) for detailed information about everything that changed.
Synergy 11.1.1i is the first version to formally support the Windows 11 and Windows Server 2022 operating systems. In some cases, earlier versions of Synergy might run successfully on a new version of Windows, but in this instance, that may not be the case for some applications and system configurations. It appears that Microsoft made some low-level changes in the Windows 11 and Windows Server 2022 operating systems that negatively impacted the way that various UI controls and backgrounds are painted in some UI Toolkit applications running in some video configurations. This issue resulted in poorly rendered UI for affected applications. It is currently unclear what scenarios cause this issue to manifest; it may be related to certain high-DPI configurations. We have addressed this issue with a change to the DBL runtime in 11.1.1i and strongly recommend that all deployments to Windows 11 and Windows Server 2022 systems be with 11.1.1i. Note that this issue also affects the current 220.127.116.1172 feature release, and the fix will be included in an upcoming feature release in that series.
As we continually enhance the isutl utility for improved performance and better recoverability in system crash scenarios, we recommend that all customers using Synergy DBMS download the latest version of the Synergy DBMS Utilities package, regardless of the version of Synergy that you are currently using.
Synergy/DE 11.1.1i is available for download now.
