There are two new editions of Manifold 9: Professional and Server. The differences between editions are related to the Manifold database server.
- Professional - does not include the server.
- Universal - includes a limited version of the server: single instance with up to 20 connections, cannot run as a service.
- Server - includes an unlimited version of the server that can run as a service, includes service management features (eg, Manage Services).
Existing licenses of Manifold 9 are Manifold 9 Universal.
All editions of Manifold 9 as well as Manifold Viewer and SQL for ArcGIS Pro can connect to Manifold servers as clients with no limitations.
The About dialog shows the edition of Manifold 9 for the current license.
Pressing F1 in the Manage Services dialog opens the help page for the dialog in the web browser.
There is a new style for text values: file = absolute path to a file. The table window and the Info pane highlight text values formatted as files and add the new Open File command to the context menu for these values. If a specific value is a well-formed path, but the file referenced by it does not exist, the Open File command is disabled.
End of list.
