ICOBOL 5 Releases
Revision 5.26 is the current release of the ICOBOL 5 product. This release includes a bug fixe related to the use of CHAR VARYING and the STRING statement with the POINTER clause. See the Release Notes for more information and additional helpful details.
Previous 5.xx releases have updated SP2 components and 5.11 fixed several bugs affecting iclog versions 5.00-5.10, and a significant bug in icsort and the COBOL SORT verb present in 4.xx versions and versions 5.00-5.10. Previous updates fixed a problem in Windows where, under heavy system load, the runtime system would sometimes fail to start and give an error that the signal event could not be created. The Windows installer was also updated to not install ICEXEC and ICSVCMGR when just the ODBC driver was being installed. As always, it also includes the fixes and component updates from previous update releases, including a critical problem with COMP data items when using the ICOBOL 2 compatibility feature. Clients who use this feature should update their systems as soon as possible. We also added a new feature to the ICREVUP utility to assist those who still had data files in the old DG-compatible formats. And we fixed problems in ICREORG when exporting files back to those old formats. Previous updates included fixes to the windows installer, the icinfo utility, and enhancements to the IC_SEND_MAIL builtin. ICOBOL 5 has a number of significant new features, including 64-bit support, large (multi-terabyte) data file support, a new installer, and changes in licensing.
