2012Q1.0 Release Notes

We are pleased to present our 2012 Q1.0 release. The main features of this release are:

  • Performance Improvements
  • Context rule and lexicon enhancements to handle a wider range of input data
  • Improvements in geocoding accuracy
  • Transliteration for Israel, UAE, Thailand
  • Linux C++ v5 library port
  • Extra installation options to support “white labeling” and rebranding

This document describes these changes in greater detail along with installation instructions, things to be aware of and other helpful tips.

API updates

  • Updated character interpretation to limit non-delimited character classification to CJK character sets.
  • Added Data Directory, Version, and Processed time to Windows Demonstration UI
  • MinimumPostcode option
    • Used to specify the minimum postcode status a record must reach in order to avoid revertion. Default is 0 (zero), valid values are 0-8 or ‘Country’ to use for the internal country specific levels.
  • DataDirectory option
    • Used to specify the directory in which to find the Global Knowledge Repository, if other than the directory of the loqate.ini configuration file specified during the lqtServer::init call.
  • OutputScript option
    • Used to specify the ISO 15924 Code in which the output should be encoded, if possible. Alternatively ‘Native’ should be specified to choose the correct country specific script value.

Fixed Bugs

  • DefaultCountry option was incorrectly being checked for in ProcessOptions, now correctly being checked for in ServerOptions
