  • Added the ability to execute JavaScript code in the scope of a BBjHtmlView control

  • Added new Grid function getColumnWidths(), particularly helpful in high latency environments to reduce round trips 
 Development Tools
  • Adds several new fonts in a basisfonts.jar file for use with JasperReports. This allows report designers to draw on a large palette of available fonts when creating reports. These fonts are available to the BBjServices JVM, so will always be available when rendering the report, regardless of whether the fonts are installed on the client machines.
  • Improves and clarifies the BBj project properties and user preference settings in the Eclipse BDT plug-ins
  • Improves BDT performance with large projects consisting of hundreds of source files 
System Administration

Also added a description to the top of the page to explain the meaning of this column. 
  • Adds the ability for the Support Upload page in Enterprise Manager to show a list of currently running uploads as well as the status of past uploads. Users can now monitor the progress of support uploads and see if a job was successfully sent or not.
