Lots of improvements and new features were integrated into FlowHeater for version 2 . New feature highlights include: a new Adapter for OleDB data sources, a new and powerful Heater for importing/exporting collections of external files , a new RAW data type.

Release notes for version 1.3.2 on March 5, 2011
Bug Fix: GroupBy Heater
When the GroupBy Heater was used together with the Filter Heater in a Definition and the first record / data row was filtered out by the Filter Heater, processing of the first grouping failed to process properly. This problem only occurred in Memory Mode, whereas Mass Data Mode was not affected. The problem is resolved with this release.
Release notes for version 1.3.1 on January 15, 2011
Standard CSV separator characters from system control panel
The Textfile Adapter now uses the standard setting for list separators in the system control panel as the default character for a CSV separator. The system setting is now accessed whenever a new FlowHeater Definition is created that employs the Text file Adapter. The actual character used as CSV separator can thereafter be overridden in the Configurator of the Text File Adapter to whatever is desired. Older, previously saved, Definition files are unaffected and continue to function as before.
Release notes for version 1.2.8 on December 6, 2010
MySQL Adapter with zero DateTime support
The MySQL Adapter in this version of FlowHeater now supports zero values (00.00.0000) in DateTime fields. Previously such DateTime values were interpreted as DBNULL/NULL values by FlowHeater. Depending on the MySQL server configuration, in many cases this resulted in the import/export process terminating with an error message. The latest version allows you to import and export DateTime values of zero without any problems.
Press release from November 29, 2010
FlowHeater GmbH has released FlowHeater Designer v. 1.2, a powerful Windows application that imports, dynamically converts, and exports data. Unlike complicated data conversion tools that require you to be - or hire - a programmer, FlowHeater Designer delivers a simple way to transfer data from one format to another. Using a simple graphical user interface to define the modifications needed to transform your data, you simply move it from place to place. By streamlining the data conversion function, FlowHeater Designer eliminates one of the major bottlenecks that cause cost- and time-overruns in many application development projects.
