We are pleased to announce a new Synergy/DE feature release, version 22.214.171.1243. This is the first in a new series of feature releases that will introduce the features that will ultimately be included in the next long-term support release of Synergy/DE in due course. The release contains three new features:
- Support for OrderBy on joined tables in Select operations. This opens up several optimization possibilities, both for your code and also for the Harmony Core web services framework. Support is provided both in traditional Synergy and Synergy .NET and for local queries and queries over xfServer.
- Support for inline FOREACH loop variable declarations. This enables you to declare loop variables directly within the FOREACH statement, simplifying your code and improving the scoping of the loop variable. Support is provided both in traditional Synergy and Synergy .NET and for both explicit and implicit typing.
- Limited runtime support for Synergy .NET for .NET 6 on Linux. Initial support is for deploying Harmony Core services on Linux, and we are working hard to extend support to other .NET 6 applications in a subsequent release.
This is also a quality improvement release and includes a variety of improvements across the Synergy product set. As always, we recommend visiting the Synergy Resource Center to review the release notes for detailed information about everything that has changed.
