What's New in All Products?

Note: This page highlights some of the more significant changes in the EZ 10.5 updates, but you can click here to see the complete version history (including the bug fixes and enhancements included in the EZ Suite 10.5.1 updates).

Column freezing in grid-type windows

Now you can freeze columns in any Ytria grid-type window. This allows you to keep one-or-more columns visible while scrolling horizontally.

The feature is available via the right-click menu in any grouping grid-type window. Keyboard shortcuts are also available for this feature: F4=Open Freeze Columns dialog; Ctrl+F4= Freeze up to currently selected column; Ctrl+Shift+F4=Unfreeze Columns.

‘Sort groupings by count’ in grid windows

Now when you group by column headers in any Ytria product you can sort by count. This means that rather than using alphabetical sorting, you have the option of sorting any column header by the number of elements/items grouped together—which is often much more meaningful. You can find the ‘Sort Groupings by Count' option by right-clicking inside any grid window and choosing Grid Actions.

More user-friendly change logging capabilities

The EZ Suite version 10 introduced a change logging option which allows you to keep tabs on the changes that you and your team make to your Lotus Notes applications using Ytria tools. Now with the version 10.5 enabling this feature is simpler and more accessible: Just open the ‘Modification Log Database Options’ dialog. In scanEZ, you’ll find it under Database>Options menu; for all other Ytria tools, you’ll find it in the Options menu.

More user-friendly change logging capabilities

Enhanced status feedback in grid windows

Now databaseEZ, agentEZ and aclEZ show additional status update icons to indicate when an element in the main grid has been updated or if an attempted update has failed.

Tighter integration with designPropEZ

Now you can launch designPropEZ batch processes in databaseEZ’s grid. To do this, you just need to make a selection, then right-click and choose ‘Batch Process Using designPropEZ’ in the contextual menu.

New console command options

You can now initiate console commands on one-or-more databases right inside databaseEZ. To do this, just make a database selection in the main grid and then choose ‘Console Command…’ in the Tools menu (or the right-click menu).

Added ‘never replicate’ flag

Now administrators can easily set or unset the relatively little-known ‘never replicate’ flag. When set, this flag will remove any possibility of a database replicating.

Dynamic property editing dialogs

In the dialogs for editing database properties (e.g. Edit Database Advanced Properties, Edit Database Basics, etc.), properties that do not have summarized data available and have not yet been loaded in the grid will be displayed in color text. We do this to remind you that the state of these properties cannot be known until they’ve been loaded.

Clear replication histories for many databases at once

The new ‘Clear replication history’ option in databaseEZ’s tools menu lets you remove the replication histories for multiple selected databases in a single operation.

More interface enhancements and convenient features

The new databaseEZ also offers the following improvements: The dialogs for editing database properties are no longer modal (i.e. you can now adjust your grid selection when one of the four database property editing dialogs is open); more clearly visible column highlighting in the main grid; The Property Analyzer grid now shades cells green for databases which do not match a given property filter.

This feature can be a huge time-saver for administrators dealing with design refreshes.
