May 21, 2008 - FactoryPMI 3.2.0 released.
New Window Serialization Format - [color=red]Please Read[/color]
FactoryPMI 3.2 uses a new format for serializing the windows inside a project. This new format makes opening and saving windows on average 2.5x faster. Users who upgrade from a previous version to 3.2 will at first notice a slowdown opening their windows. This is because existing windows must be re-serialized in the FactoryPMI Designer before they can benefit from the new format. To quickly re-serialize all of your windows, open your project in the Designer and navigate to Tools > Advanced > Reserialize Windows, and then save your project.
Due to the lack of consistent support for multicast UDP traffic on industrial networks, FactoryPMI’s clustering feature now uses TCP traffic by default. The result is more reliable clustering on many networks.
Two new components, the Paintable Canvas and Sound Player make their debut is FactoryPMI 3.2. These components can be found under the “Misc” tab on the component palette. The Paintable Canvas is an advanced component that can be programatically drawn using scripting, inspired by this post. The sound player component enables simple audio notification without any scripting, and in a cross-platform manner. Looping and triggering modes make it a snap to configure.
