In our ongoing effort to improve the building of 4D applications, we’ve added a few functionalities to 4D v19R5 that you’ll certainly find useful.
The first one is the ability to remove some of the biggest 4D modules from your applications: CEF, Mecab, PHP, Spell Checker, and 4D Updater. If you don’t need some of these modules, you’ll be able to significantly reduce the size of your applications.
We also changed the final directory when you build a compiled structure, in order to accommodate those using multiple compiled versions of the same structure.
As for our Japanese customers, we have merged the Japanese version of 4D and the international one on MacOS.
Let’s delve into the details.
Projects introduced the new directory.json file containing users, groups and permissions. It allows authentication, restrictions, permissions on several parts of the application, through settings or code. Let’s see the new improvements about this file usage in merged server projects.
You may want to restrict administrators from accessing the Data Explorer and the Runtime Explorer in your deployed merged servers. 4D v19 R5 enables to do so.
Here is everything you need to know.
