Instructions

This page provides a list of patches with fixes and improvements published after 1.1.3 release. To use the patches, you need to apply them to the 1.1.3 source code by saving it in 'koffice/' source code directory and running

 patch -p0 < patchfilename

Note that the source code in KDE Subversion (branches/koffice/1.6/koffice/kexi/) repository has the patches applied already, and is so you can safely fetch it instead of patching the original 1.1.3 version released with KOffice 1.6.3.

A fix for handling thousand objects

Previously 101 objects like fields were supported by single table in the Table Designer or forms. Now the number is increased to 1009. This fixes reported bug #148355.

Note that in the upcoming Kexi 2.0 there is will be virtually no such limit at all.

It's safe to apply the patch if you are unsure.

download the patch: thoushand_objects_support-1.1.3.patch

^ toc

A fix for importing columns of type long text from MySQL server

Previously columns of type long text from MySQL server were imported as BLOBs. Now these are imported as long text.

It's safe to apply the patch if you are unsure.

download the patch: mysql_migrate_long_text-1.1.3.patch

^ toc

A fix that hides 'hourglass' mouse cursor when form is loaded

For data sets that are large enough to take more than one second to load in form, Kexi shows a hourglass. There was a problem because the mouse cursor wasn't reverted to normal "pointer" type after the form's data is fully loaded.

It's safe to apply the patch if you are unsure.

download the patch: hide_hourglass-1.1.3.patch

^ toc

A fix for handling floating-point binary operators in SQL expressions

This patch fixes the bug #146818: handling expressions containing binary operators like *, /, -, + where both arguments are of floating-point type (with single or double precision). Previously the result was marked as boolean, now it is floating-point.

It's safe to apply the patch if you are unsure.

download the patch: fp_expressions-1.1.3.patch

^ toc

A fix for handling long text types in MySQL migration

This patch fixes migration problem for MySQL databases with long text types. Previously, Kexi marked the imported data as BLOB, not it is set to text type.

It's safe to apply the patch if you are unsure.

download the patch: fix-handling-long-text-type-in-mysql-migration.patch

^ toc

A fix for handling boolean types in PostgreSQL driver and PostgreSQL migration plugin

These two patches fix problem for PostgreSQL databases with boolean types.

It's safe to apply the patches if you are unsure.

download the patches: fix-support-for-boolean-types.patch, fix-support-for-boolean-types-in-migration.patch

^ toc

A fix for possible crash in buffered mode in SQLite driver

This patch fixes possible crash in buffered mode in SQLite driver. It is usable in external applications that use KexiDB.

It's safe to apply the patch if you are unsure.
