Version: 4.7.4
Framework Version: 7.0.2
Release Notes: • We created the new cmdlet ‘New-MxApp’ which initializes a new app with a basic Settings.yaml file. • We created the new cmdlet ‘Set-MxLogLevel’ which sets all log nodes of a log subscriber to the specified log level at once. • We fixed the problem that the service startup type ‘Automatic’ is stored with a wrong value when running the Service Console under the Turkish locale. • We check the right configured Java version if one is specified for a Mendix app (only possible in recent Mendix versions). • We updated the Newtonsoft Json.NET library from version 13.0.2 to 13.0.3. • We updated the YamlDotNet library from version 12.3.1 to 15.1.1.
Version: 4.7.3
Framework Version: 7.0.2
Release Notes: Release date: December 18, 2023 • We now sign all Mendix Service Console executables and libraries, next to the main executable and the installer file (excluding third-party libraries). • We changed the default installation directory for the Service Console to the 64-bit program files directory (which is usually C:\Program Files), instead of the 32-bit directory (which is usually C:\Program Files (x86)), as the Service Console actually runs 64 bits when the OS supports this. • We added the NoService parameter to the Start-MxApp cmdlet, which will cause the cmdlet to start the app as a local process instead of as a service. • The Stop-MxApp cmdlet will now stop apps if they are started as a local process and as a service.
Version: 4.7.2
Framework Version: 7.0.2
Release Notes: Release date: September 21, 2023 • We fixed an issue where new or deleted application constants were not picked up correctly when updating your app via the Update-MxApp cmdlet. (Ticket 185938) • We added a new field to specify the maximum value of form posts (bytes) in the Jetty Configuration section of the Advanced Settings window.
Version: 4.7.1
Framework Version: 7.0.2
Release Notes: Release date: February 24, 2023 • We added the possibility to add extra logsubscribers in the Settings.yaml file (for more information, see Compared to that information, the Logging property has to start with an upper-case letter (as in, Logging: instead of logging:). The loglevel setting as described is not supported for the Windows Service. • We replaced the modified YAML parser YamlSerializer with YamlDotNet 12.3.1. • We updated the Newtonsoft Json.NET library from version 13.0.1 to 13.0.2. • We added build number information to the version information of the executables and the subject field of the MSI installer file.
Version: 4.7.0
Framework Version: 7.0.2
Release Notes: Release date: August 26, 2022 • We fixed an exception that occurred when updating an app where files with a path exceeding 260 characters were overwritten. (Ticket 142021) • We now require Microsoft .NET Framework version 4.6.2 instead of 4.5.2. • We removed the license ID check in the Service Console itself, because this check is already done by the server. • We updated the DotNetZip library from version 1.13.3 to 1.16.0. • We updated the Newtonsoft Json.NET library from version 12.0.2 to 13.0.1. • We updated the Tulpep.ActiveDirectoryObjectPicker library from version 2.3.133 to 3.0.11. • We replaced an old version of Ookii.Dialogs source code with the Ookii.Dialogs.Wpf 5.0.1 library.
