Stonefield Query for ALERE Version 8.1

We are pleased to announce the release of version 8.1 of Stonefield Query for ALERE. There are several new features in this version.

  • The new Data Grid button in the ribbon and toolbar output a report to a data grid window.

  • Everywhere a password can be entered, such as the login dialog or the Email page of the Options dialog, now has a "show password" button that toggles whether the password is shown as plain text or "*****" (it's always stored encrypted regardless of the setting of that button).

  • You can now control what folder scheduled tasks are placed in rather than always being in the "root" folder in the Task Scheduler.

  • The Test Syntax button in the Customize SQL Statement step of the Customize Report Wizard now tests whether the SQL statement works with the database engine you're connected to; previously, it only tested whether it was valid in Stonefield Query.

  • If Shutdown.txt exists at startup (created either by checking for updates or clicking the Shutdown button in the Displayed Logged in Users dialog), you are now prompted whether maintenance has been completed and if you respond yes, that file is deleted and startup continues.
