The latest and improved version of MiWorkplace is now available

Wednesday, June 16, 2021
The latest release of our evolving development environment for IBM i is here! MiWorkplace is now integrated with TD/OMS and comes packed with enhancements to the Job view, the library, and many others. Read on to find out what V1.27 brings!

New in MiWorkplace V1.27

Integration with TD/OMS

TD/OMS can now be integrated with MiWorkplace on the same level as with RDi for all functions:

  • Open MiWorkplace Editor when editing.
  • Use MiWorkplace compile results.
  • Put the item in the build queue on saving.
  • Open editors in browse mode when not in development.
  • Reset the library list based on the task at hand.

MiWorkplace filtering

A flexible filtering system has been added, and it enables you to define categorized filters for the QSYS and IFS file systems.

  • Filter categories can be toggled on and off together.
  • The filter icon will open the filter management dialog.
  • Filters can be imported and exported.
  • The relevant help section can be found in the Remote Explorer/ Filters section.

Job view enhancements

The Job view has been enhanced, so now it's easier and more intuitive to work with jobs. You can:

  • Automatically prepare common filters if none are found.
  • Show filter criteria in the job filter.
  • Make filters available across all connections.
  • Automatically load a filter after it is created.
  • Add icons to the job view context menu.
  • Populate the filters when hitting refresh.

Library enhancements

  • The libraries and library lists widgets in the connection dialog now allow you to position the libraries in the list by using drag and drop, which facilitates the action.
  • You can also directly edit the library list by right-clicking on the connection and choosing Library List.
  • Libraries can be added to an active connection, and you can add multiple libraries in one go.
  • A list of comma or space-separated libraries can now be added in the entry field of the library list editor. You can also copy the library list from the green screen and paste it into the field.

Shortcut to increase or decrease font size

You can quickly increase and decrease the font size of the editor by pressing the CTRL+PLUS and the CTRL+MINUS key combinations.

Easily search next and previous

Formerly, searching previous and next shortcuts (CTRL+K and CTRL+SHIFT+K) only worked in combination with the search dialog (CTRL+F), but now they also work as standalone.

You just have to select a piece of text and press CTRL+K or CTRL+SHIFT+K, and then you can search the document you're looking for quicker.

Job list selection of current user and subsystem

The job view filters allow the selection of the current user, which allows you to list jobs that run on behalf of a user. And it is also possible to filter jobs in a specific subsystem.

IFS Search

The remote search is now available from the explorer context menu. It enables IFS search by adding two flavors of grep as a search engine: the old-style QSH grep when the open-source tooling has not been installed or the new QOpenSys/pkgs/bin/grep. For more information about the new search capabilities, you can take a look at the Remote Search and the Remote Search Result chapters.

Toggle between IFS and QSYS

A switch to toggle between the IFS and QSys objects has been added to the toolbar.
