A new update for Manifold is now available.
Changes since previous update:
(Fix) The Coords and Branches split functions in queries no longer sometimes return wrong data for certain cases of complex joins.
(Fix) Importing a malformed TIFF file no longer sometimes produces garbage data instead of failing with an error message.
(Fix) Refreshing data in a linked table no longer fails to update the number of selected records shown in the status bar.
(Fix) Importing a TIFF file with 4 16-bit channels no longer sometimes reverts channels for R and B values.
(Fix) Docking or undocking panes no longer sometimes fails to repaint them.
(Fix) Opening or closing component windows no longer sometimes fails to repaint docked panes, particularly add-in ones.
(Fix) Importing a raw binary file no longer fails to recognize fractional missing values.
Installing Manifold requires having a full version of .NET 4.
For download links as well as instructions on installing and using updates, see the Manifold System Updates page.
Due to the shift from .NET 2 to .NET 4, all third-party modules that bind to Manifold DLLs such as Manifold.Interop.dll or Manifold.Interop.Scripts.dll have to be recompiled. This includes standalone applications, class libraries and custom controls using Manifold objects, statically compiled extensions for web sites using Manifold objects, add-in panes for Manifold, custom image server and geocoding server modules for Manifold, etc. Built-in image server and geocoding server modules for Manifold are an exception to this and should continue to work seamlessly.
While in many cases, modules using Manifold DLLs built for versions of Manifold prior to 8.0.29, may continue to work after the upgrade to 8.0.29, this behavior is not guaranteed unless these components have been specifically tested against .NET 4.
Update: Installation Issue on Windows XP and Windows Server 2003
The original release of Manifold 8.0.29 had an issue that was preventing it from installing correctly on Windows XP and Windows Server 2003 systems (both 32-bit and 64-bit). The issue has been fixed and the installation files have been updated.
If you had problems installing Manifold 8.0.29 on Windows XP or Windows Server 2003, please re-download the installation packages and try again.
