SALT LAKE CITY, UT (PRWEB) August 21, 2004
QSI Corporation, manufacturer of rugged operator interface terminals, has released the latest version of Qlarity FoundryÂ and QlarityÂ Firmware for its family of award-winning graphic operator interface terminals Â the QTERM-G70, QTERM-G75 and QTERM-G55.
ÂThe most significant development in version 2.1 is keypad support for the new QTERM-G55 handheld graphic terminal,Â said Jeremy Richards, Senior Software Engineer, ÂNew objects have been developed specifically for the QTERM-G55, enabling the user to use screen graphics and a keypad to interface with the terminal.Â
Other significant new features include Multicast IP, Mutli Select / Align / Space Evenly, Object Themes, Source-level Debugging, new APIs and new objects.
Â·Multicast IP allows communication between a single sender and multiple receivers on a network. The Qlarity-based terminals can now send and receive data on a multicast network.
Â·The Mutli Select / Align / Space Evenly feature provides the ability to select multiple objects in your workspace and move or align them. In addition to the standard align options (top, bottom, center, left and right) there are options to make two objects the same height or width and to space objects evenly.
Â·With the new Object Themes feature, you can select from a number of predefined themes (colors and borders) for the objects in your workspace or create your own. Themes allow you to quickly change the look of all objects in your application with a single key press. Themes can be overridden on an object-by-object basis.
Â·Source-level Debugging allows you to add break points in your source code and use familiar options (resume running, single step, step into, step out, call stack) to aid in debugging your application. A watch window has been added to the Simulation view to display the current value of your variables.
Â·New APIs have been created to aid in drawing complex borders, using arrays, controlling draw caching and compressing and decompressing data.
Â·Objects for Unicode text, transparency, Ethernet TCP/IP and UDP connection and emulators that support legacy QSI products have also been added.
