Real Studio 2011 R2 WE Bug

Real Software released 2011 Release 2 this morning.  It has the usual number of bug fixes (especially for Cocoa) and some new things (especially for Web Edition).

I haven’t compiled my list of the good, bad, and ugly yet, but in my initial testing of Web Edition there are some significant changes that may or may not affect you.  The way WebPages are handled is different and if you relied upon the Session.CreatePage event you now have to rewrite that portion of it.   This change is for the better (in my not so humble opinion) but it might make your life a little harder until you get used to it (and change existing code).

The one critical bug that I’ve discovered in my testing this morning is that the config.cfg file that is generated by Real Studio gets fragged for CGI applications.  So instead of this:

APPNAME=JCLogin

THREAD_COUNT=10

PORT=0

AUTO_PORT=1

After I try to run it one time I get this:

APPNAME=

Obviously my app no longer runs.  Chatter indicated that RS thought this was a Windows only bug but since I’m running on Debian Linux I think the problem goes deeper.  More info as I find it.

[Update]:  I should point out that I’m creating a Linux, CGI application with automatic port detection.  I’m building it on Mac OS X 10.6.7 on an i7 iMac.
