Backend and APIs
Over 18 improvements and fixes to the SlashDB make up this release. Of note are:
- Non-blocking API reflection on-demand, meaning quick system readiness on startup with multiple databases
- Graceful shutdown and restart by utilizing named pipes for fine grained control of the application server process
- Uniform and much tightened config validation at startup and online to avoid certain inconsistencies when malformed config files are used at startup and in the GUI
- Resolved certain conflicts between HTTP headers and XML and JSON encoding (i.e. UTF-8)
- Fixed problem with filtering for data containing question mark in Data Discovery.
