The release notes for this version contain the following changes:


  • Fixed Issue: When a comment range contains a large number of cells and has many comments, the time required to load comments during a build was significantly longer in 8.x than in 7.x. In 8.1.5, as the result of server-side and client-side optimizations, the performance has improved and is faster than in 7.x. As an example, the view used for benchmarks contains a comment range with over 41,000 cells, and 15,000 comments. In 7.x, the total build time was around 2 minutes. In 8.1.5, the build time is ~19 seconds. #3257

Additionally, in 8.x, there was a long delay after entering a comment into a cell, which has also been addressed. #3256

  • Fixed Issue: When a new comment is entered into the Comments Editor and saved, the Created by, Date Created, Modified by, and Date Modified values are not updated and remain blank until the view is rebuilt. #3264

Dodeca Developer Reference

  • Fixed Issue: When accessing the Dodeca Developer Reference documentation via the Dodeca Developer Reference tool on the Help menu of the default admin toolbars, the page renders poorly and the search function does not work. #3250

Dodeca Shell

  • Fixed Issue: When running the upgrade command against an MS SQL server repository, the following error may occur: Cannot insert the value NULL into column 'CONNECTED_USER', table 'dodfins.dbo.VIEW_USAGE_LOG'; column does not allow nulls. UPDATE fails. This issue was introduced in Dodeca 8.1.3. #3228
