We are very pleased to announce IrisBG version 3.6.0. This new release is a technical milestone which will make Iris capable of handling very large datasets on PC’s running 64* bit version of Windows. This becomes relevant when you import a large number of high resolution images or produce very big Excel spread sheet reports. We appreciate that these capabilities are not necessarily important to all of our users, but it means that IrisBG can offer a professional and reliable solution to very large collections. We will present these capabilities in more detail later this year when we publish our article on the integration between IrisBG and the Smithsonian Digital Asset Management System.* IrisBG have always worked fine on 64 bit Windows, but it has until know, executed as 32 bit software. The new version will run as 32 bit or 64 bit software depending on the PC. The installation is the same for 32 and 64 bit Windows.
Windows 10 Compatibility
In February, we shipped an update that resolved a few Windows 10 compatibility issues. Part of this effort included a major upgrade of several underlying software components. With version 3.6.0, we have improved the integration further.
So what happened to Windows 9? According to Microsoft : “Windows 10, because 7 8 9”
Reporting on Historic Data
The focus of this release has been of a technical nature, but we have also had time to include a few report improvements. The new report “ItemHist01 : Items history” gives you the possibility to run reports for all item entries, including historic entries. In addition, the statistic “SumItem01 : Sum Items” includes the option to “Include item history”.
