QAD Enterprise Applications Compatibility: eB SP4 through current release
Supported Progress Releases: OpenEdge 10.2B, 11.1

New and Changed Features
1 Event Filter can now be configured for database events and non-DDP business events.
Event filter is a filter on database records that determines whether an event should be raised. You can use the filter to prevent unwanted events from being raised, instead of having the event service or publisher determine its usability.
2 WAN (Wide Area Network) related options are available for Source Application Details page. Enabling WAN Options can help to achieve better system performance and reliability when QXtend connects to a source application through a WAN.
With these options, you can:
Configure QXO to automatically retry to connect to source application database after connection failed within the specified maximum times.
Specify an AppServer for QXtend to run event consolidation on it.
Determine whether to monitor event counts on QXO Dashboard.
3 For a File Directory Service subscriber, user can define name pattern for QDoc files. Values of profile fields (including custom fields) can be used in QDoc names.
4 When copying a business object, you can select profiles, except for the default profile, to copy with the BO. The default profile will be generated by the system when you copy a BO.
5 Top level node of a QDoc (dataset level node) can be excluded from the XML when the subscriber’s XML Syntax is set to Other. There is a parameter in subscriber profile configuration to set this.
6 Configuration Data Transfer
QXtend now provides you the capability to transfer configuration data from a source system to a target system. For Outbound, you can export BOs and their associated profiles from the source system to a bundle file and then import them into the target system. The items to be exported or imported and the behavior when an error happens are configurable.
7 Allow Superseded option is no longer available for setting BPM subscribers.
8 QXtend now supports the new technology stack used in QAD 2013 EE: .NET Framework 4.0, OpenEdge 11.1, and Tomcat 7.
