Atelier 1.3 Beta Update

Atelier Beta Update 1.3.133

Atelier beta update 1.3.133 was released on September 28, 2018. It is the initial Atelier 1.3 update, available from the beta update channel as a plug-in for Eclipse Photon (4.8). For the best upgrade experience, InterSystems suggests that you install Eclipse Photon fresh before installing Atelier 1.3.

This release provides the following improvements:

New Features

  • Photon support – Install Atelier in Eclipse Photon and benefit from the fixes and enhancements in this new release!
  • YAML support – This release supports YAML in Xdata blocks. YAML code is colored in black with no syntax error markers.

Enhancements and Fixes

  • Open documents by name – This feature, refered to as Navigate > Open Atelier Class/Routine in the initial Atelier 1.3 stable release, is now called Open Atelier Resource. Select it sfrom the main menu to open workspace or server documents in an Atelier editor. Use the dialog menu to limit the scope of the search. Enter a string to filter the list of results.
  • Compare to Server – The Compare With > Server's Copy command, previously available only from the Atelier Explorer view, is now also available from the Atelier editors. Easily find differences between workspace and server versions of a file using this context menu option. It is especially useful when a file is marked as out of sync.
  • Graphical editors – Minimum permissions for opening the graphical editors has been expanded to the %EnsRole_Developer role.
  • Legacy XML import and export wizard – Additional improvements address issues with new line and white space formatting, and unicode characters. You can now import classes associated with servers pre-2016.2.0 with no guaranteed additional support. These files will be supported by Atelier navigation and editing features if they conform to the current Class Definition Language (CDL) version. A bug that caused classes with broken headers to not be listed in the export wizard has also been resolved.
  • Syntax error checking coverage – The parser has been updated to no longer mark the following valid syntax as invalid: OPEN keywords, SHARD keyword, $listget(), embedded SQL object references.
  • Navigation – Inherited members are now listed from the editor quick outline by pressing CTRL+O/CMD+O twice from the editor context. Go to line now navigates to the expected routine label as well.
  • Code completion – SQL variables, except for the special id variable, are now listed in code completion proposals. Code completion after the dot dot syntax has also been fixed.
  • Performance – Parsing of class and routine headers has been optimized, which improves file listing and navigation performance. Updates to the internal architecture have also improved parser performance.
  • User Experience – The default color for JSON keys has been darkened to make them more legible. In addition, many error messages were addressed. Synchronization error messages are now more user–friendly and one case of concurrency conflicts that caused the "beginRule" error has been resolved. Client requests to the server now respect the API version supported, which was previously causing errors.
  • Secure Storage – Valid changes to Eclipse secure storage made outside of Atelier components are now recognized by the Atelier UI.
