Benefits of Advantage Version 10
New OS Support
Support was added for Windows 7, Server 2008 SP2, and Server 2008 R2.
When running on a 64-bit OS, the Advantage Server can access more than 4Gb of memory. This can allow more concurrent connections and provide increased caching for queries.
Reindex performance has been enhanced. In previous versions, the table was scanned once as each index was created.
Index Speed Enhancements
Improvements to the low-level index code were made. This should speed up all index operations.
Dynamic Server Configuration
The Advantage Server can now dynamically allocate more resources, avoiding errors that occurred in the past when the connection or file handle limit was reached.
General Performance Upgrades
Improvements were made to the code for most table operations, including file opening, record lock management, appending and deleting records, and allocation of heap memory.
