General Notices

  - Closed: Email_send delays: caused by dependence on speed of quoted-printable encoding that was since moved to native code.

- Closed Map-> RemoveAll Fail. Maps don't support this. They rely on each key being unique, so if a match is found, map believes it's the only match.


Investigation was continued on:

- 7336 Update Internal Cache Tags

- 7334 Update Internal Libraries

- 7327 Admin notification of email queue growth

- 7325 Lasso consumes memory

- 7324 Lasso does not automatically restart after a crash in CentOS 5

- 7323 DNS Deafness. Detailed review of instances of this did not lead to any identifiable and fixable cause. Issue Pending More Information  

- Lasso Connector for Apache 2.2 not loading on Windows XP.

- Oracle connector does not currently support UTF-8 data.


Missing Release Notes?

I have seen Lasso 8.6.1 in the download Area, which is newer than

Is it the same ?

Great Upgrade

by Bakr Mustafa, 28 August 2012

As with Lasso 8.5.6; I used to restart the service on windows often; due to a strange unknown internal exception error that used to show after doing exhaustive mysql queries...

As with Lasso 8.6; I can say based on my initial testing that is more rock solid; so far I did not face any such issue.

Keep up the good work
