GS-Base 18.4 has been released

New features in this version:

  • The “File > Database Checksums” command enables you to create SHA-256 checksums/hashes for selected database/file content (excluding formatting, column/row widths, colors etc.)
    Comparing these checksums you can verify that the actual data have not been changed after copying, transferring, saving in a different format etc.
  • The “Database Checksum” dialog box:

You can use this function to create control SHA-256 hashes for any file formats that are supported in GS-Base. For example, you can verify that data in some text file remain the same regardless of the column separator and encoding.
The 3rd option in the above dialog box can be used to verify that given databases have exactly the same structure/definition, ignoring their content.
