We have a full newsletter for you this month. It
all starts with the What's New section where details of
the latest release of RS-SQ, version 4.01. This
one has been in the works for some time, and makes some
major enhancements to the imaging portion of RS-SQL, but
also includes some cool, new features.
We also officially announced the dates and location of
our 2011 Strategic Partner Conference and are putting
the call out for speakers to share their successes.
In the Technical section, with RS-SQL 4.01 released and
the supply of the new MC9590-K scanners picking up, we
are interested to get your feedback on these new devices
and features. There are also updates on Internet
Explorer 9.0 and SQL Server 2008 SP2.
As always, I hope you enjoy this edition.

What's New at O'Neil
RS-SQL Version 4.01 Has Been Released
version 4.01 is now the official
release that is shipped with all new
system sales. This release primarily
builds upon your feedback from the
use of the initial Document Imaging
functionality introduced in RS-SQL
version 3.07. So what changed?
Firstly, the Document Imaging
feature is now expanded beyond its
initial test phase, where a document
had to be created to attach an
image. In RS-SQL version 4.01, the
imaging capability now expands to
containers and filefolders, while
maintaining the document level for
those who require this. We have also
completely redesigned the Add/Edit
dialogue screens, giving you more
fields and flexibility for indexing
data regarding the image.
Secondly, a new Storage Method field
has been added. There are now two
options available for selection:
Your RS-SQL Database or an Image
Bank. This allows you to store
images in your RS-SQL database or to
a location that can be referenced by
a URL to an Image Bank. The Image
Bank option provides information on
where a resource is located and a
means for retrieving it. It also
makes it easy to navigate to image
files stored outside your RS-SQL
database without having to grapple
with cryptic URL formations each and
For example, the Image Bank could
point to an image:
Now we couldn’t update imaging without it having a
significant impact on RSWeb®.NET, as we know your
customers want to have an easy, intuitive method for
requesting Image on Demand services. In RS-SQL 4.01, a
new Image Express feature provides different ways for
your customers to quickly order an image of a container,
filefolder, or document. It works essentially the same
as the Order Express feature, but has its own cool new
search and grid functionality, that I know you are going

Blog Update: Managing Chain of Custody for Off-site
The question of being able to ensure that you can
maintain the chain of custody is something that has come
up a lot lately in conversations I have been having. It
is clear that everyone is more cautious in today's
highly regulated business environment, and so being able
to prove who handled records and when is important. That
proof allows you to demonstrate a complete chain of
custody as records move your off-site storage facility.
All these discussions reminded me of a short article I
write some years ago, which clearly still has relevance

We carry out an
extensive testing and selection process with all of the
new barcode scanners, but nothing beats using them in a
daily, active environment to find out how well they are
performing. In testing we saw much faster scanning
and a really great display, but how are the ergonomics
and the battery after a full days' use?

completed fully testing, but there is no reason not to
use it as long you use Compatibility Mode for
now. We will update you in this section of the

RS-SQL and Microsoft SQL Server
Another post on
our user forum, this time from Lori Wagoner in the
Technical Section, enquired about RS-SQL and its
compatibility with Microsoft SQL Server 2008 SP2.
We’re using it internally and have encountered no
apparent problems. If problems arise in the field with
SP2, we will assume support responsibility and work
toward a solution.
