May’21: New Release

Grenoble – May 12th, 2021 – Today XYALIS unveils a new release bringing powerful improvements to increase OASIS® reading/writing operations performance. 

  • Compression and decompression functions have been optimized so that reading or writing an OASIS® file with cblocks, which is the default behavior, is almost as fast as a straight access.
  • All generated OASIS® files are now in a “strict” mode. This will allow a much more efficient access to data when using high performance readers.
  • Layer names and file level properties will be kept when possible while reading and writing OASIS® files.

The frame generation tool, GOTframe, has also been greatly enhanced by the addition of new options and features in the frame description file.

  • Protect layers generation for overlapping frames has been fully reworked to cover as much specific cases as possible.
  • It is now possible to set internal variables instead of using environment variables.
  • Scribe constraints may be defined on families.
  • Relative orientations HOR and VER may be used in rotation constraint formulas and are recognized as properties on items.
  • XGOTframeEditor is now able to handle all frame description file features and to rebuild a clean file from multiple sources. This can be done in command line mode.

 

And much more improvements…
