OpenSCADA 0.6.4



Release of the open SCADA (Supervisory control and data acquisition) system of version 0.6.4 is the planned release of the 0.6.0 branch. Withing the limits of this version the considerable work on the stabilization and adaptation to the practical problems is made, and also the significant improvements are implemented. This version of the OpenSCADA system is positioned as an official beta version of the stable 0.7.0 version of OpenSCADA for the platform "Linux x86/x86_64".

This document is the processing (compilation) of <ChangeLog> document of the OpenSCADA system of 0.6.4 version, which is designed to briefly and clearly to cover the new features and changes of the OpenSCADA system. The document includes information on changes made in the stabilization releases of the 0.6.3 version. To get acquainted with all the changes in the OpenSCADA system it is possible in the file ChangeLog from the distribution kit of the system, or here:

Key features of this version are:

While working on the release the following changes were made to the OpenSCADA modules:

1 Implementation of planned tasks

In accordance with the plan of the release there were performed the following tasks:

2 Optimization, stability, sustainability and system performance increasing.

While working on this version, as well as its practical adaptation, it was discovered and corrected in a total of more than 200 errors.

Except the correction of the errors the work under the optimization of the various components of OpenSCADA. Particularly the noticeable optimization was made in the visualization control area (VCA) and in its visualizers. The main vector in the optimization was the optimization of memory usage.

Here are the most significant error, correction of which has the significant effect on improving of the stability:

Optimization and productivity improvement:

3 Improvement and stabilization of the VCA.

Significant changes have been implemented within the visual control area (VCA), namely in the VCA engine modules UI.VCAEngine, in the visualizers UI.Vision and ~ UI.WebVision. The changes were aimed to the stabilizing, optimizing of memory usage and improvement of the user functions of the VCA.

Improvements of the VCA:

4 Translation of documents in English and the program's interface in German. Multi-language database.

Much has been done to translate the program interface into German by Irina Popkova. The OpenSCADA kernel interfaces have been translated and the module ones: UI.WebVision, UI.QTCfg, DAQ.DCON, DAQ.LogicLev, DAQ.DAQGate, DAQ.DiamondBoards, DAQ.ModBus, DAQ.SoundCard, DAQ.Siemens, DAQ.SNMP, DAQ.System, DAQ.JavaLikeCalc, Protocol.HTTP, Protocol.SelfSystem, Special.FLibComplex1, Special.FLibMath, Special.FLibSYS, Transport.Serial, Special.SystemTests, UI.VCAEngine, UI.QTStarter, UI.Vision, UI.WebCfg. The patch of the Klaus Fetscher for the correction of the interface translation into German is included.

The English translation of documentation for system-wide documentation and modules is done by Maxim Lysenko: DB.SQLite, DB.MySQL, DB.FireBird, DB.DBF, Archive.DBArch, Archive.FSArch, DAQ.System, DAQ.LogicLev, DAQ.DAQGate, DAQ.JavaLikeCalc, DAQ.ModBus, DAQ.SoundCard, DAQ.Siemens, DAQ.SNMP, DAQ.DiamondBoards, DAQ.BlockCalc, Transport.Sockets, UI.WebCfgD, UI.QTStarter, UI.QTCfg, Transport.Serial, Transport.SSL, Protocol.SelfSystem, Protocol.HTTP.

To the OpenSCADA system kernel the support for multilingual text variables is added. Owing to this feature the demonstration databases of individual languages merged into one multilingual database, which includes English (basic), Russian and Ukrainian languages. Multi-language is supported by the modules and databases DB.SQLite DB.MySQL. Demo configuration file is also translated into English (basic), Russian and Ukrainian languages.

5 System-wide expansions.

For this release it was made a lot of system-wide changes aimed to enhancing of the functionality.

Extension of the user programming API:

Changes in the demo DB:


6 Plans for the further development

To the release of the industrial version 0.7.0 it is planned the solution of the following tasks:
