Changes and Bug Fixes in Release 1.6:
Multi-Line Column Headers in FLIS Parts Tab: To allow more columns to be visible in the “Part List” display, the “RN” codes were abbreviated to “FC”, “CC”, “AAC”, etc. That caused some confusion to new users. We’ve added a second line to the “Part Information” headers. The change allows a fuller description while preserving horizontal space.
"Eliminate Download Duplicates" has been hidden when selecting a Report in Batch. (The option doesn’t apply to reports and should not have been displayed.)
Fixed a bug which prevented the user from seeing more than 50 jobs on the “Batch Status” tab.
Eliminated Synchronous Post Transactions: “Download” and “Print” transactions simply waited while the requested data was generated on the server. This caused a problem with some proxy servers. They would time-out the transaction and retry the request. The continuous retries prevented the transaction from ever completing.
Added unique identifiers to all batch transactions.
"System Alert Dialogs" were replaced with a custom dialog which does not block other events. The dialogs were causing random communications errors.
Batch users now have access to all indexes. Previously some branch specific indexes in FLIS were not displayed.

Fixed: The LIRSH report definition.
Fixed: A bug which could result in data not being displayed in a record detail form.

Changed: LogiQuest once again starts up with “Data Views” open. New support was added to automatically collapse “Data Views” when a “Scan & Filter” dialog opens.
Grid Copy/Paste Improvements:
Highlighting a single cell allows copying just that information.
Highlighting multiple cells on a single row allows copying just the cells highlighted.
Clicking on a column header while holding the control-key selects an entire column. The copy operation will unselect the column. A column is also unselected by either selecting another column, or by simply clicking on the column header of a selected column.
The search key grid in the batch display supports pasting a single column of data at a time. The user can start on any cell in any visible column. This means the user can type in several terms then paste in more. (Columns copied from other grids.)
In each case above the user can use CTRL-V, the menu or the toolbar to do the copying.
Copy Items needing additional work: Highlighting multiple rows in a grid will result in the contents of hidden columns being copied.
Changes and Bug Fixes in Release 1.5:
One to many database cross-referencing has been added. In this initial release these cross-references include the APL, AEL, and D049 files. A one to many xref is indicated by a green tab. When one of these tabs is clicked, several things happen:
Your current record list (Search Tab) is saved and is replaced by the list of cross-referenced records.
Green “Close” and “Close All” buttons appear in the lower left hand portion of your screen. Clicking the “Close” button will back out of one level of cross-reference. Clicking “Close All” will back out any number of cross-references and return to your original search.
In the recent searches box, indented entries will appear for each level of cross-reference. Clicking anywhere in the list will back up to the selected level.
Cross-References may be further refined using the “Search” tab.
NIIN Cross-References out of APL and AEL.
Improved right click help on Quick Searches.

Changes and Bug Fixes in Release 1.41:
Occasionally incoming and outgoing messages collide within Internet Explorer. These collisions can cause sessions to hang or restart messages to appear. Retries have been added to this release to avoid the problem.
Upon first use of the product (or clearing of the IE cache), on a fast machine, the product startup occasionally failed. The problem has been fixed.
IE7 blocks programmatic closing of the login screen. If the user attempted a second login, using the original screen, that login would fail. The login screen has been changed to allow multiple consecutive logins.
The User Manual has been updated.
Several databases have been updated.
Changes and Bug Fixes in Release 1.40:
The “Classic Plus” display has been rearranged. We’ve given the key list a lot more space on the display. This allows for three improvements:
Better key descriptions.
Hierarchical Key Lists: Many new keys have been added to the FLIS database. These are now broken out by service.
Better breakout of cross-database search keys (like Procurement).
The button layout is a little less convenient, however if you stick to double-clicking keys you would like to add, and hitting enter to search, the buttons are not usually needed.
Support has been added for load-balancing. This includes support for proxy servers.
A “Part Order” display has been added to the FLIS data view. Just click on “Set Part Order” on the Toolbar.
Procurement Displays: We have completely reworked the display of procurement information. Prior versions took the “lowest common denominator” approach. In other words, only the data items that were common across many sources were displayed. The new layout shows almost all of the data we receive from each source. This is a work in progress; we still have work to do in the area of proper price interpretation from some of the data sources.
A keyword index has been added to the procurement data view.
“Data Views” now comes up closed. This is to allow addition space for recent searches and expanded filtering support.
