The first Early Software Access Program release of OpenEdge 11.5 will be available soon. This release includes the Pacific AppServer for OpenEdge, utilizing next generation multi-session Application Server technology! There are also a number of database Table Partitioning features and other user-requested features. Please send email to firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to sign up for this program.
so what are these "other user-requested features"?
i can't say if i am interested if i don't know the new features.
Gotta sign the NDA before they can tell you what's in it! :)
so i need to sign up for the early access programm to then discover that i am not interested in any of the new features :D
Right. I signed up for 11.4 expecting the Pacific AppServer to be in it, but no.
Oh the things our lawyers make us do!
As announced in the original post, there are 2 major features planned for OpenEdge 11.5, the Pacific Application Server for OpenEdge and some additional features for the Database Table Partitioning feature released with OpenEdge 11.4. Yes, there is a long list of additional features, and yes, you'll have to join up to learn what they are (or wait until Progress Exchange, the EMEA PUG Challenge, or when the product ships to hear more about the other features).
The Pacific Application Server for OpenEdge should be of particular interest to many: we've modernized our 15-20 year old AppServer technology, including making it a multi-session AppServer. For current AppServer users, it is typically easy to run your existing code on the new AppServer with little to no modification, and you'll likely be pleasantly surprised at the performance gains. For others who have not yet adopted AppServer technology, the Pacific Application Server for OpenEdge makes it even easier to adopt and use the technology.
The next generation AppServer should provide the motivation you need to join the OpenEdge 11.5 Early Software Access Program!
Pacific Application Server for OpenEdge - it is also will be only for Cloud?

i really hope that "other user-requested features" are some things from the ideas section
Well the "Turn off the splash screen for developers" idea has moved from "Coming soon" to "Complete", and the "REST Outbound Support should be in the ABL" idea has moved from "Under Review" to "Coming Soon".
Everything else is still "under review" :(
