New Features

Key Enhancements

  • The ability to customize the log file name for NonStop sessions using variables to specify host name, session name and the date has been added.
  • Added support for using Reflection Desktop 6530 sessions with the Micro Focus Host Access Management and Security Server (MSS).
  • Added support for selecting a word in a terminal session by double clicking on it.
  • Added support to select hotspots by pressing Control and then double clicking.
  • HLLAPI functions 103 and 104 are now implemented for 6530 terminals
  • Added the ability to change the color of the cursor by choosing a color for the Cursor item in the Text Color Mapping list.
  • Added support for making selections with the Shift button and mouse keys. The Shift+Left-Mouse-Button extends a selection. If nothing is selected, the area from the cursor location to where the user clicks is selected. Support was also added for using the Alt+Left-Mouse-Button to select a rectangular area

Resolved Issues

  • Cursor movement over areas with text in a 6530 terminal session is now consistent with cursor movement over areas with no text.
  • When uploading a native 6530 Tandem file in OSS mode with an SFTP file transfer, Reflection now automatically appends a “,101” to the file name, which is the standard file type code for a Tandem edit file.
  • Selecting text on 6530 terminals when using a block- shaped cursor now works correctly.
  • When scrolling in a 6530 terminal session, the text now moves with the scroll bar as expected.
  • When a session is in block mode with no cursor displayed, the Quick Keys now work as expected.
  • When metering a 6530 terminal session, the End Status/Elapsed Time of the session is now reported correctly.
  • When using a 6530 terminal in conversational mode, the mouse can now be used to place the cursor anywhere in screen memory.
  • The user can now switch between 6530 terminal sessions while the paste operation for large quantities of data is running in another 6530 terminal.
  • A 6530 terminal session connected via SSH with autowrap set to OFF no longer disconnects during frequent screen updates.
  • Performing a “search and replace” with a large file open in Tedit no longer causes crashes or host file corruption.
  • Problems that caused screen artifacts to be displayed in some circumstances have been fixed.
  • The cursor is now in the correct location after moving from block to conversational mode.
  • Pasting performance has been improved.
