With the integration of CWS dba203b, text/csv databases can now make use of the UTF-8 encoding. That is, if you have a "comma separated text" file you want Base to read, and this file is encoded in UTF-8, then you can now choose this encoding in Edit / Database / Properties ... / Character Set.

TestTool: new command IsProduct() as boolean i50125   feature-info:
Provide command to get the build type of OOo. To be able to distinguish a 'normal' OOo build from a 'debug' or 'nonpro' build this command is introduced; Currently exist only ugly hacks, to get this information: - compare the filesize of a library - look in tools->options for special page To speed up the start up of a test this new command will be used. May get integrated around SRC680m165. The function is implemented in the TestTool application and needs a new sts-library on the OOo side.
testtool: command findObject ( string ) as object i54137   feature-info:
Enhance Object handling to find objects by name and allow object ssignments As example: dim xx as object xx = findObject("FormWizard") print, if xx.exists() then print "exists" May get integrated around SRC680m165. The function is implemented in the TestTool application.
