DataStar Release:

Release Date: 7th June 2020

ClickOnce MSI Installer Chocolatey

This release depends on Microsoft's .NET Framework 4.7.2 - this should be installed prior to upgrading. You can find the .NET Framework 4.7.2 by following these links:


FEATURE 124 - The SQL Server Management Objects (SMO) Framework is a set of objects designed for programmatic management of Microsoft SQL Server and Microsoft Azure SQL Database. This release sees an upgrade to version 160.2004021.0

FEATURE 125 - Applies to TFVS Commits Only - when committing a change from the component view or the deployment view only the components selected will be marked for commit in the commit dialog. If nothing is selected (or an item is selected that has not changed then all items will be selected) - these can easily be unchecked in the commit dialog.

Resolved Issues

DEFECT 126 - Applies to GIT Only - when displaying items in the deployment view if the item was updated via a Merge/Pull Request then it would incorrectly report it as not being the latest change. A fix has been applied to resolve the issue.

DEFECT 127 - Applies to "DataStar.CmdLine" only. An error occurs if applying a "reversal" after updating the audit table to remove "DATE_STAMP" column and add "START_TIME" and "END_TIME" - the fix correctly detects if the update to the timestamp columns has been applied.
