This topic provides release notes for the very latest build. For info on builds and a history of recent builds, see the Changes and Additions topic.
A technical build delivered out of sequence to fix bugs introduced in the TIFF dataport by the previous build. In addition, several new features have been added, including enhanced TIFF performance, GPKG improvements, faster loads for database dataports, and expansion of temporary data that can be used in a Manifold session to 1 terabyte in 64-bit mode.
(Fix) Reading a TIFF with tiled data no longer sometimes shows no images. (The regression that is the main reason for this out-of-band build.)
(Fix) Reading a TIFF no longer sometimes fails to mask pixels with no data values for int8, int8u, and int16 data types.
(Fix) Reading a TIFF no longer sometimes inaccurately decodes CMYK data.
Linking a TIFF supports pyramids stored within the file. This is a new feature that allows rendering a big TIFF without spending any time on preparing data for intermediate levels, if the file already has that data prepared and stored internally. There is a limitation in that the pyramids are only supported if both the main image and all sub-images within the file are tiled, but that is how such files are usually organized.
Dataports for databases skip loading support for personal geodatabases for technologies that cannot have them, for faster starts.
Dataports for databases skip loading support for SDE geodatabases for technologies that cannot have them, for faster starts.
(Fix) The color picker tool no longer picks the color from a wrong pixel on screens with DPI scaling.
The limit on the amount of temporary data used in a Manifold session in 64-bit mode has been increased to 1 TB.
The internal implementation of SQLITE has been updated to 3.32.2, adding a couple of new SQL functions.
(Fix) Dataports for web servers no longer sometimes fail to connect via HTTPS for the first time: Tthe first HTTPS web request no longer sometimes fails due to SSL / TLS policy being applied at the wrong time.
Exporting a map to GPKG shows a progress bar and reports export speed.
Reading a GPKG exposes an additional virtual table for each image. The virtual table has a fixed structure and includes both a BTREE index on the x-y field and an RTREE index on the x-y-tile field. This allows both rendering intermediate levels stored in the database as well as Alt-clicking into image tiles to see pixel values. The virtual table is read-only. The physical table storing image data continues to be accessible and writable.
Importing data into a data source other than MAP no longer stops if some of the indexes fail to create.
Pasting an image table with an RTREE index on the x-y-tile field automatically generates data for intermediate levels.
