19. August 2009 09:32

V 2.20 of FaxMan Jr is now available for downloading from the My Products page.

 

This is a maintenance release that includes the following changes:

  • 64 Bit Printer Drivers for Vista, XP and Windows Server 2003 & 2008
  • Class 1 sending more robust when line issues after dialing, previous versions would error out when receiving an ERROR or Timeout after the initial CONNECT after dialing, now we resend a +FRH=3 when that occurs.
  • AutoDetect automatically sets the proper init string for Hardware flow control for USR modems.
  • Changes were made to the Transmit code to be more robust when data is received when we are sending the page data. In some prior builds we would not properly handle this leading to No Reponse to MPS/EOP or timeout issues.

Internet Explorer Version 8 and .Net components in clientside web applications

26. June 2009 10:01

Microsoft has slipped in a new security 'feature' in Internet Explorer 8 which prevents .Net components from loading in Internet Exporer from sites in the Internet zone. Internet Explorer version 6 & 7 did not have this limitation so applications may break after Internet Explorer 8 is installed.

 

Here's the Microsoft Knowledgebase article that describes the change and how to work around it.
