VSoft Technologies Blogs - posts about our products and software development.

The latest case study is an excellent example of how FinalBuilder can really reduce the workload of doing builds - "FinalBuilder reduces our build time for a product line from around 3 days to less than 3 hours." Impressive! Boian Mitov (of Mitov Software) develops Visual C++ libraries, and Delphi, C++ Builder and .NET component packages for very fast Digital Signal Processing (DSP): "As part of our process we perform 138 package builds, 322 Delphi and C++ Builder demo projects, 3 Visual C++ libraries, 1 Delphi, 1 C++ Builder and 2 Visual C++ DLLs, 1 .NET library, and 138 Visual C++ examples, 15 Installs, 18 Help files." Imagine doing all that by hand!

The updates to Continua CI and FinalBuilder released today provide somewhat better integration between the two products.

We have been working on moving Continua CI to .net 4.6.1 for a future release, and during this conversion (so far, mostly just updating nuget packages), we discovered an issue that turned out to be caused by a change to .net certificate validation.

Today we release Automise 5.

New Continua CI Version 1.8 beta features

Automise 5 Beta

Automise 5 had been updated to use the FinalBuilder 8 engine. It now runs faster and leaner.

The use of SHA1 is digital certificates (codesigning, SSL etc) is being phased out in 2016, it's time to update your code signing certificate.

A while back I published the VSoft.CommandLineParser library on github, which makes it simple to handle command line options in delphi applications. I have updated it to support commands, where each command has it's own set of options.

Pretty much every native windows application these days includes an xml manifest file. This post shows how to modifiy those files in FinalBuilder
