  • Remote projects should have unique service configurations when these projects are imported all at once.
  • Building a managed executable project with local location threw Core Exception and Null Pointer Exception.
  • C/C++ Index is not run automatically when creating a new push-pull project with index after build option set off.
SE47022 The properties file for the stack tracing tool can't be accessed properly by multiple users simultaneously on Windows systems.
Linux C/C++
  • New Remote C/C++ Project Wizard, Import Remote C/C++ Project Wizard and Convert to Remote C/C++ Project Wizard should not finish until the last page of the wizard is visited.
  • Remote C/C++ search showed duplicate results.
  • Remote projects should have unique service configurations when these projects are imported all at once.

AIX and Linux
  • Files get pushed again when user close project then reopen again
  • Push on Save causes Remote Location to show up blank on Remote Reconciler
  • SSH connection timeout increased
IBM i
  • Code colouring issues after SEU move command in an SQLRPGLE member
  • Copying a field containing attributes with indicators in Screen Designer was causing source to be deleted
  • CL F1 help broken and RPGLE help goes to general help for F-Spec keywords
SE27890 RPG Parser tokenizes D Spec continuations incorrectly
SE45986 RPG Outline view does not appear due to forward slash ' / ' in Connection name
SE45575 Attribute DSPATR(HI) not coloured properly in Screen Designer

SE31546 after changing member type in RSE, editor not updated
SE45016 The ordering of the library list associated with an IBM i connection is incorrect.
SE46354 RDp 8 duplicate Lpex French shortcut
SE46435 Design tab goes out of sync with source in Screen Designer after saving
SE46657 LPEX compare incorrectly flags some matching lines as unmatched
SE46760 Encoding conversion to UTF-16 in RDP i Projects corrupts source members
SE47149 RDp crashes when editing SQLRPGLE with SQL syntax checking enabled
SE46946 expansion of libraries, objects, members and jobs are now properly cancellable via the Progress View (in previous releases, queries would continue and eventually populate the view(s) after any attempt to cancel). The use of the EVFC9143 message to indicate that a query has taken too long has been deprecated. The method of cancelling through the Progress View is now the recommended way of dealing with long-running queries. The EVFC9143 message can be enabled through the preferences if the user still wishes to have this functionality.
SE46852 RPGLE Program Verify crashes workbench on LIKE(a.b) in procedure
SE47031 Sorting fields in Screen Designer displaces record level keywords when annotations exist

SE30843 the selected object in RSE expanded even when unrelated to the new resource being created
SE47034 Push changes to iSeries generate error when using linked resources
Debugger Added option to "always use the debugger editor" while debugging. The debugger editor is a read-only editor that, by default, only downloads a portion of the file being debugged, resulting in faster response time, especially over a slow network. It does not tokenise the text, and only highlights lines based on whether they're executable. Since the debugger editor is read-only and used only while debugging, the menus are simplified only to show debug actions. You find this option on the Run/Debug > Compiled Debug preference page.
