MarcEdit Update Notes

By reeset / On / In MarcEdit

Posted Sept. 1, this update resolves a couple issues.  Particularly:

Windows/Linux:

* Bug Fix: Custom Field Sorting: Fields without the sort field may drop the LDR.  This has been corrected.
* Bug Fix: OCLC Integration: regression introduced with the engine changes when dealing with diacritics.  This has been corrected.
* Bug Fix: MSI Installer: AUTOUPDATE switch wasn’t being respected.  This has been corrected.
* Enhancement: MARCEngine: Tweaked the transformation code to provide better support for older processing statements.

Mac:

* Bug Fix: Custom Field Sorting: Fields without the sort field may drop the LDR.  This has been corrected.
* Bug Fix: MARCEngine: Regression introduced with the last update that caused one of the streaming functions to lose encoding information.  This has been corrected.
* Enhancement: MARCEngine: Tweaked the transformation code to provide better support for older processing statements.

Special Notes:

I’ll be adding a knowledge-base article, but I updated the windows MSI to fix the admin command-line added to allow administrators to turn off the auto-update feature.  Here’s an example of how this works: >>MarcEdit_Setup64.msi /qn AUTOUPDATE=no

I don’t believe the AUTOUPDATE key is case sensitive – but the documented use pattern is upper-case and what I’ll test against going forward.
