Announcing Kirix Strata 4.5

Image - Light BulbYikes. It’s been a while.  We’ve been pulled off on myriad other important projects, but happy to announce a new upgrade to Kirix Strata.  Better late than never, right… right?  ;)

In addition to lots and lots of under-the-hood stuff fixed, stabilized and optimized, we’ve got some nice features people have been asking for.  Here’s a list of the highlights:

  • 64-bit support.  It took some work, but we’re thrilled to have a version that is optimized for 64-bit, which, critically, can utilize more than maximum limit of 4GB on 32-bit systems.  If you’re using version 4.4.2 on a 64-bit system, you can upgrade to the 64-bit version by downloading it here.
  • XLSX and ACCDB support.  It’s been a long time coming, but you can now import directly from the newer file formats from Excel and Access instead of using CSV or XLS/MDB workarounds.
  • Report formatting.  Reports now support cell borders/lines as well as vertical alignment. Yay!

In a bit of sad news, with this upgrade we say goodbye to the Linux version of Kirix Strata.  Historically, there hasn’t been enough commercial traction for the version and, unfortunately, supporting it further is cost prohibitive.

In addition to the things above, we’ve made many improvements to various bits and bobs throughout the package, which should lead to better overall performance.  Download the Windows 32-bit version here and the Windows 64-bit version here.

Enjoy!

P.S.  Mea Culpa.  We’ve experienced some unrelenting spam issues on the blog comments and forum as of late and we’re trying to clean that all up; sorry ’bout that and thanks for your patience.

    Saying goodbye to the Linux version of Kirix Strata is really sad news for both wxWidgets and Linux.

    Kirix is one of the most important contributor to wxWidgets, with one of the most deployed libs (WxAUI).

    Kirix dropping Linux support, means that Kirix isn’t going to improve the cross-platform anymore. In fact using wxWidgets for only one platform (Windows) does not make much sense, why would they keep on using wxWidgets at all.
