When should I upgrade?
- We aim to release a build every eigth weeks that includes the latest incremental features and bug fixes. These builds are identified by a three-part version number, such as v3.0.
- If you want to wait until all aspects of a feature have been fully completed, it’s best to use a quarterly minor version release, identified by a two-part version number such as v3.1.
- Annual major releases (such as v3) combine multiple feature releases and undergo additional QA.
V8 Search XE 184.108.40.20621 Release Notes
|DPFI-2103001||Fixes||After importing a Full SQL Trace Xevents log, an error occurred when starting the "Full SQL Trace Xevents Transaction" dialog and entering the transaction number. The error was caused by an arithmetic overflow and has been fixed.|
|DPFE-2103002||Features||A new function has been implemented to analyze the T-SQL scripts from the "long durations". The function consists of two parts it formats all SQL scripts so that they can be executed and measured directly in SSMS Studio. The second part of the function extracts all table names from all T-SQL scripts of the "long durations". This allows the table names to be analyzed by frequency.|
|DPFE-2103003||Features||From now on, the T-SQL scripts can be passed directly to SQL Server Management Studio from the dialog windows using the shortcut Ctrl + F7.|
|DPFE-2103004||Features||A function has been added under the menu item Dashboard -> General. The Transaction ID Full SQL Trace function compares the imported "Full SQL Trace" data with the Blocking, Deadlocks and Long Durations data. If there are any matches of the Transaction ID during this period, they will be displayed in a list. The list will show you whether it is a blocking transaction or a blocked transaction. With the Full SQL Trace Events Transaction function, you can view the complete transaction in the open dialog box. In the dialog window there is a new button under XE Profiler with the name Analysis after pressing the button the detected SQL scripts are marked, which was detected for this transaction as blocking, deadlock or long duration.|
Under the menu item "SQL Database" -> "SQL Server Database Index" the function "Index breakdown" has been changed. The function no longer analyzes the entire database but only a specially specified table.
For the parameter "ReportStyle" please enter the value 0 or 1.
In the SQL database section there are now some queries that you can filter on special table names. When you start the query and a dialog box with the "SpecifiedTable" parameters appears, you can enter the table name or leave the parameter value empty. If you confirm with okay and have inserted a table name, the SQL query will be executed specifically on this table. If you leave the parameter value blank, the SQL query will be executed for the entire database.
The filtering applies to the following SQL queries:
|DPFE-2103006||Features||From this version of V8 Search XE it is possible to show and hide columns in all dialog windows. Furthermore, there is the possibility to fix columns now.|
|DPFE-2103007||Features||From now on, after a new installation of V8 Search XE, when you start the V8 Client for the first time, you will be asked if you want to restore your V8 Client configuration files from a backup. To backup configuration files in the future, open the Settings and navigate to the area under the menu item "Backup Configuration". Here you have the option to specify a directory. Press the blue button on the left, select a directory and the data will be automatically backed up to the folder.|
Another change was made in the area of the V8 services. In the future, the services will no longer be started or stopped one after the other, but in parallel. During this process, no progress indicator will be displayed in the task area. When a V8 service has finished starting or stopping, you will receive a notification message at the bottom right edge.
Color blue = "check",
Color green = "start",
Color red = "stop".
If the V8 service cannot be started, you will receive a message.

This information helps to analyze queries with bad values.|
