Could the very handy shortcuts to the EBP / Service Pack readme files be updated for the latest releases? (see comments)

Can the readme page include links to the last 3 or 4 releases of currently supported versions - (ie older versions v16 as well as v17)

This page saves a huge amount of bother!

Thanks

AFAIK, they do - with a certain time lag:)

I agree it's a very handy (and S-USER-free...) summary..., and I have used those links in the past quite a few times here:)

So which one is obsolete?

Aggghhhh... Volker - it's been updated. I'm making a twit of myself here. When I went to it the other day it had a rather old v16 link, but now its up-to-date!! In order to save some face I'm going to have to rephrase my request: "Can the readme page include links to the last 3 or 4 releases of currently supported versions"

Do you ask for different versions the readme files, or are you more interested in the classic "Latest EBF overview" as was available in Breck's blog for years?

(For readmes, IMHO it is sufficient to have the latest available because it is easy to filter for changes between different builts...)

Oh, oh, can't comment, too easy :)

But Boris you're not...

It a good point - just a list of the other builds that were actually released would be sufficient.

AFAIK, there's has been an update w.r.t. the state of the Secretary of State for F&CA...

OK, now I see/understand the "17.0.9" in the subtitle :)

(31 Oct '18, 08:00) Breck Carter

Version 16.0.0.2726 is available for download with a release date of 2018-10-23.
I am currently on version 16.0.0.2704 and Sybase Central is telling me "You Are Up-To-Date".
So it's great that the #1 source of information on SQL Anywhere (a.k.a. this forum) is better informed.

Sybase Central told me for the first time that version 16.0.0.2704 was available on 2018-10-22.
So a day before the next version was released Sybase Central started informing me that a new "but rather old" version was available...

Yes, I can confirm that behaviour.

According to some related FAQs, in the past the Update Checker often informed rather delayed about new versions. I don't know whether it needs "manually updated information", or if there is a "grace period" of n days between release date and "update information date"...

(31 Oct '18, 09:56) Volker Barth

FWIW, the Update Checker on 16.0.0.2704 still tells "You are Up-To-Date". Well, I'm not, methinks.

Maybe the Update Checker should check for updates of the Update Checker first?

(13 Nov '18, 08:55) Reimer Pods

Also, Sybase Central and Interactive SQL tells me that there are updates to 16.0, even if I'm currently at EBF 2798 (which is the latest). Quite annoying, methinks. ;)

Hm, 16.0.0.2798 does tell me that I'm up-to-date... Could it be that either the client software or the database server (if on different machines) are not on 2798?

Hi. This is a personal database server on my laptop. Sybase Central is 16.0.0.2798. Has been like this as long as I can remember.

Well, thanks for that, and apparently another thanks to Justin for the original question:)
