New Features Added to Super Stuff v6.10 for the Clarion Template Chain.

Included the Clarion 6 compatible version of the "MikeHanson" template chain. This was formerly the public domain template, and is now part of Super Stuff.

The mhView templates are enhanced to include support for CPCS.

Quicken-style date entry feature.

The resize templates are more stable.

Super Templates and Clarion 6

We've essentially completed the conversion of our templates for Clarion 6. (Changes to the documentation are still being applied, and testing is continuing.) Although most of templates "worked" with Clarion 6 as-is, they were not completely compliant with the new threading paradigm. In the end, some of the templates required very few changes to accommodate the new version of Clarion, while others required fairly major modifications.

The new templates will work with both Clarion 6 and Clarion 5.5, so that you don't need to worry about running with two different versions. We've dropped active support for Clarion 5 and previous versions. We'll attempt to help users when needed.

Most of the individual updates will cost $20 US. SuperSecurity, SuperTagging, SuperStuff will be $35, due to the more extensive upgrades. SuperQBE is $50, because we've also added some great new features. There are new features in many of the other templates, but we're not counting those as major updates. Once this first raft of templates is released, we plan to add major new features to most of the template sets.

We are currently testing all of these with C6-CR6. Soon after C6 goes gold, we'll release our completed templates.

BoxSoft SuperSecurity 5.0 Released!

We've released the latest major update of SuperSecurity Version 5.0.

Due to the new features, we've added more fields to the SSEC::User file, along with a new file called SSEC::PwdLog. You must get all of this into your dictionary, along with converting your existing data files. For more information, see the SuperSecurity documentation under the section "Upgrading From Earlier Versions".

All hard-coded windows have been moved into generated Window procedures, to enable better handling by Clarionet, etc. Due to this change, you ***MUST*** import C:\C55\SUPER\LIBSRC\SECURITY\LOGON.TXA into your base APP. Also, if you are not using global maps, then mark the newly-imported procedure as "Declare Globally" in its procedure properties.

There's a new property called Security.FullAccess. If you want your users to logon, but for some reason you want to allow unlimited access throughout the program, then set this to True. Its value is checked with each call to Security.CheckAccess(...), so you can change the value on-the-fly.

There's a new method called Security.PrepareFilenames. It's called from Security.LoadQs, which is executed before Security.Logon in your Main procedure. It's an empty virtual procedure that you can override to set your own variable filenames and owner attributes for the security files. (Some of you may have been using PrepareLogonOpenFiles to handle some of your file opens. This virtual method is now extinct. Please move any code from that method to the new one.) You must override the Security object to do this. For more information, see the Classes tab on the global extension.

The Logon can happen automatically using the network username (as long as it matches a username in SSEC::User).

Passwords are no longer restricted to 8 characters. The new default (when importing SECURITY.TXD) is 20 characters, and you can edit the field definition to a maximum of 50 characters. There is also an optional setting for minimum password length.

You can set passwords to expire, so that the user must enter a new one. This comes from a global default, but can be changed on a per user basis (including no timeout at all). When entering a new password, previous passwords are remembered in SSEC::PwdLog, so the user can be forced to enter a unique password compared to the last "x" passwords and/or last "y" days.

The new Password features include some new strings in STABSEC.TRN. If you have a custom version of this file in your development directory, make sure that you add these new lines.

There's a new "Locked" feature to lock-out users from logging on.

You can set the "Maximum Logon Failures", at which time the user is automatically locked out.

When the Security system HALTs the program, you can execute some of your own code on the way out. You must override the Security object to do this. For more information, see the Classes tab on the global extension.

We've improved support for run-time language translation. See Security.Translate in the docs for more information.

When you're specifying the access door in the template settings, now you have the option to select the door from your own MyDoors.clw.

The documentation has been updated to reflect all features in this and prior releases. This is accessible via online help, or you can read STABSEC.PDF in C:\C55\SUPER\DOC\.

It also compiles clean under Clarion 6-EA2 and appears to function correctly. However, we haven't yet addressed all the issues with the new threading model.
