Version 3.21 of the Keelio Software products has been released!
7/11/2010

 Version 3.21 contains several important bug fixes with the Template Transformation data flow component.  Anyone using the component is recommended to upgrade to this latest version.

This release contains the following updates:

  1. Template transformation issue where columns could not be removed properly after adding them in either the standard editor or the advanced editor.
  2. Fix for template transformation error that would occur if no rows enter the component.
  3. Updated samples installer that now guides you through install process based on what samples you have installed and you can now select which samples you wish to setup instead of being forced to setup all samples.
  4. Documentation updates.
Version 3.20 of the Keelio Software products has been released!
5/25/2010

This release contains a new component that will replace both the XML Destination Adapter as well as the XML Transformation adapter and is called the Template Transformation.  This component can do all of the things that the XML Destination and XML Transformation components can accomplish but can also do many more things that customers have requested. 

The XML Destination adapter and XML Transformation components will still be supported.  However they will be removed from all future versions of the product as of November 1st, 2010.  If you wish to upgrade to versions that are released past that date you will need to convert your existing integrations to utilize the new template transformation task.

Template Transformation Features:

  1. Very low memory utilization. The component can write data to the downstream pipeline almost immediately therefore there is no longer memory constraints with our tool as we can offload the data as soon as it hits the component. This has essentially reduced the memory footprint on most documents by around 98%.
  2. Much more granular control on how you create documents. Customer feedback necessitated the change to make this more of a template tool as the other XML creation components restricted you in many ways in the way you generate your XML and therefore failed in many customer situations unless you wrote XML "fixup" code after the initial document had been created.
  3. There is usually no need to ever use the XML Formatter tool any longer as you can design your templates in a way that would make it so that the XML data always comes out formatted properly. This will also increase the performance of your integrations due to one less step the integration has to perform.
  4. Built in XML and HTML escaping. Previous components only had XML escaping.  In fact now the escaping is completely user customizable on a column by column basis.
  5. Built in XML data cleansing to remove characters outside of the valid XML range as defined by the W3C. No data cleansing was performed in the previous components.
  6. Ability to create non-XML based documents.
  7. Faster XML creation using the tool, instead of defining many XML nodes and levels you can now use one of the many free XML editors available and define the structure of your XML within that editor and copy and paste in the XML fragments into the template transformation tool instead of defining all of the rigid levels and nodes as you had to do in the previous versions of the component.

This release contains the following additional updates:

  1. Dynamics GP 2010 support.
  2. Automatic document numbering for many document types within the Dynamics GP eConnect task as defined in the eConnect SDK.
  3. SQL 2008 R2 tested.
  4. All samples have been rewritten to utilize the new Template Transformation component.
Version 3.18 of the Keelio Software products has been released!
2/23/2010

NOTICE: This release contains several very important changes that will affect the compatibility with previous packages.  Be sure to read the update instructions in the Upgrade Notices document as you will be required to run a conversion tool if you are upgrading from a previous version of our products to this version.

UPDATE: 3/12/2010 - 3.17 has been replaced with 3.18 after finding a bug in the XML Transformation component that caused certain scenarios for depth levels to not work properly.

This release contains the following updates/fixes:

  1. New Dynamics GP Next Document Number Transformation component.  This will allow you to get next document numbers from Dynamics GP within the data flow of SSIS.
  2. Consolidated Dynamics GP components.  There are no longer components seperated by version of Dynamics GP, instead there is just one version of each component and you select the version of Dynamics GP you want the component to run against.  This will greatly simplify upgrades of SSIS packages from version to version of Dynamics GP.
  3. Many documentation updates in the user manual.  Upgrade notices are now in their own document included in the download.
  4. Several new XML SSIS Toolkit samples have been added.
  5. XML Transformation and XML Merge components now have a buffer option to allow for streaming to a file instead of relying on everything to be in memory.  This should only be used in scenarios where your server does not have enough memory but it has a considerable performance overhead.
  6. Updated Project Converter tool for the Dynamics GP component updates.
  7. General GUI cleanup.
  8. Consolidated all GP Samples and made installer program ask which version of Dynamics GP you are using to setup the samples accordingly.
  9. New XML Formatter option to use XDocument (LINQ) parsing which is faster and requires less memory then the old way of parsing (XmlDocument).
  10. General speed improvements throughout all of the code which has also reduced the library size considerably.
  11. Value type option in style drop down in XML Transformation and XML Destination adapters that allow you to add values after lead elements that have attributes.
Version 3.16 of the Keelio Software products has been released!
10/11/2009

This release is a maintenance release containing the following fixes:

  • Dynamics GP eConnect and Next Document Number tasks were found to leak connections (keep open connections to the database server).  This issue has been corrected.

As with previous releases, be sure to read the manual for important upgrade documentation.

Version 3.15 of the Keelio Software products has been released!
10/3/2009

NOTICE: This release contains several very important changes that will affect the compatibility with previous packages.  Be sure to read the update instructions in the manuals as you will be required to run a conversion tool if you are upgrading from a previous version of our products to this version.

This release contains the following updates/fixes:

  1. Integrated installer for all products.  SQL 2005 and SQL 2008 components are embedded into one installer.
  2. Installer is now a pure MSI based installer.
  3. All code has been consolidated and refactored into version specific DLL's.  This means that you can now have SQL 2005 and SQL 2008 components running side by side which will be helpful in development environments that deal with multiple SQL versions.
  4. XML Merge component automatically refreshes when new columns are present.  In the past you had to go into the advanced editor and mark any new columns that were created from upstream components.
  5. XML Transformation and XML Destination adapters have been updated so that no component properties are updated until you press the OK button.  In the past XML mappings were updated immediately. 
  6. XML Transformation and XML Destination adapters now do validation on the OK button press.  This will make it so you can make any edits that you want without getting validation errors during row edits.  All validations are now handled at the very end of the component when you press the OK button. This will provide for a much better editing experience.
  7. Fixed a validation error that would occur in the XML Transformation and XML Destination adapters when using attributes at depth level 1 when the output row element was unmarked.
  8. Added more validation logic to XML Merge component.
  9. Added more validation logic to the XML Destination and XML Transformation components.
  10. XML Transformation and Destination adapters now handle upstream component changes better so that downstream components do not have to be updated as much or be completely remapped. 
  11. Fixed a bug that would cause the XML merge component metadata to be corrupted when attaching to the component multiple times.
  12. Updated installer utility to detect multiple sample types.
  13. Added a project converter tool to upgrade from versions 2.41 to 3.14 to make those compatible with 3.15.
  14. Dynamics GP SSIS and XML SSIS Toolkit manual updates.
