New build available with Suggest bug fixes.


Suggest is a brand new piece of functionality and still being adopted at clients so we do pick up the occasional bug in it. But they are few and far between and on the it is proving to be very stable. Version 4.2.361.1803 is now available from the Twenty57 website. Thanks to Anand and the team for all the great work.

The one bug will only affect you if you are running the Bank Recon Database on SQL Server 2008 and on a different server to the application. SQL 2005 and SQL 2008 handle transactions in a slightly different manner which caused the bug. This build won't affect how Suggest works on a SQL 2005 database in any way.

Additional Suggest Bugs fixed are:

  • Ensuring all HTML keywords and special characters are handled correctly if they appear in the data.
  • Better handling of the error which was appearing on the Suggest Config Screen when the service is not running.

Bank Recon is not yet developed in SQL 2008 so while I am confident it works in conjunction with 2008 (and we have a number of clients running Bank Recon on SQL 2008 in production environments) we don't run the build and unit tests on SQL 2008 so the odd compatibility issue may slip through. If you encounter one let me know and we will do our best to address it.

And if your environment is running SQL 2005 and you have plans to upgrade soon tell me so we can make a decision on when to officially move Bank Recon to SQL 2008.

The next planned release will include exception management (both user driven and automated) so watch this space.
