Getting Started - What's New - Version 5.0.5
Version 5.0.5 is a minor update to VistaDB 5 with fixes to issues discovered since the release of 5.0.  For a complete description of what's new in VistaDB 5 see What's New - Version 5.0.

New Features in This Release

Increased Maximum Command Timeout

To support SQL Server Analysis Services (SSAS) which uses a very long, non-configurable timeout the maximum allowed query timeout was increased to 3600 seconds.

Reduced Memory During Pack

To improve MONO compatibility and solve out of memory errors in certain schemas the Pack operation now uses a fixed amount of memory instead of attempting to optimize to the available memory on the system. This can slightly slow down pack in some cases for systems with large amounts of memory but improves performance in systems with less memory for schemas that use variable length fields and other cases that are hard to estimate memory usage for.

Defects Fixed In This Release


  • SQL Query Fix: GROUP BY does not respect culture and case-insensitivity of database
  • Fixed: Removed obsolete partial-trust attributes.

ASP.NET Membership Provider

  • Fixed: Installation registers ASP.NET membership providers in machine.config, complicating and even breaking web.config for the providers.
  • Fixed: Removed obsolete APTCA from ASP.NET membership provider which caused security violations under .NET 4.0.
