Dynamic Concepts UniBasic and dL4 Version 11

We are pleased to announce the immediate availability of major enhancements to UniBasic, dL4, dynamicXport and ODBCdL4. These new versions will become the standard unibasic.com download deliverables on January 25, 2021. Older versions will remain available on ftp.dynamic.com.

For UniBasic and dL4 version 11, a new “Huge+” file structure is available for Indexed Contiguous files. The current Index limit of 256GB has been increased to terabyte-sized Indexes on all supported platforms. Additionally, on 64-bit platforms (Linux 64/66), the number of data records has been increased from 2 to 4 billion.

Environment variables can be set to automatically produce a dL4 program dump or UniBasic vsave when programs exit with an uncontrolled error or STOP. This applies to dL4 programs launched with the ‘run’ utility or UniBasic programs started with the ‘-F’ option and adds extra security by not allowing users to be left in a shell after a STOP or error.

For dL4, the socket and TLS/SLS socket drivers support IPv6 addresses and Unix domain sockets can be accessed with the Unix domain socket driver on all supported platforms. Intrinsic CALLs to support encryption, decryption, and signing are available on dL4 for platforms 36 and 66 (Red Hat Enterprise Linux 32-bit and 64-bit).

You may use ‘ssnmaint’ to determine whether you will need a new SSN activation code prior to installing any of these new releases (UniBasic/dL4 version 11; dynamicXport version 3; ODBCdL4 version 1). Licenses covered under Software Assurance subscriptions may be upgraded at no charge and a new SSN may be ordered and installed in advance without affecting your current operations.
