Release : 6.5.1 Date: Oct 1, 2012


Operating System Affected : Windows, Ubuntu    

Installation: Major Upgrade Instructions  Here


We are releasing a 64 bit version of FRP for Windows and Ubuntu Linux platforms.  This new release provides improved performance and better utilization of available memory.  The 64 bit versions are of particular value to our high-volume customers who use modern 64 bit OS's on their servers.  This release joins FRP's 64 bit version for Mac  64 bit versions for additional Unix distribution are forthcoming.


New Features


  •  64 Bit version for Windows
  •  64 Bit version for Ubuntu




  • We have upgraded FRP's embedded SQL database to enhance FRP's ability to handle a large volume of concurrent real time events.  This version also resolves a bug with automatic restart of the database after automatic reorganization.
  • Fixed a bug in Windows versions where some ACL changes were not triggering real time replication of the ACL change.



Release : 6.5.0 Date: June 4, 2012


Operating System Affected : All    

Installation: Major Upgrade Instructions  Here




New Features


 - Increased the default maximum Java Heap memory on all operating systems FRP can use from 512mb to 1600mb to permit smoother and faster operation with multiple jobs running and to speed directory scans, bit level processing and other resource intensive operations.  FRP will not use this memory unless needed and will release it when not needed.

 - Increased job logging history by 5X the previous retention levels to accommodate the growing size of customer jobs and expanding number of jobs being run.

 - Several other minor performance and usability tweaks were added to the code.


 - All Windows versions of FRP now require Windows .NET Framework version 3.5 or higher - This is required to support newly enhanced realtime processing on windows platforms.


 - Real Time event processing was also enhanced for MAC and Real Time supported Linux platforms.




 - Fixed error loop that rarely occurred but which would keep FRP in an error loop and not replicating until the service was restarted. Although rare,  this loop could have severe impact, halting replication, and consuming excessive resources. In some cases it would also result in rapid growth of the FRP internal database well beyone it's normal size of about 200 - 500mb.

 - Fixed bug that sometimes caused DSYNC Replication (Bit Level) to fail mid transfer.  When this occurred it could cause a premature ABORT of the job without transferring all of the files.  In still fewer cases it could result in the job never being able to get past a certain point in the replication always ending at the same file before aborting.

  - Fixed a number of issues which in certain environments caused unexplained stoppage of real time replication jobs prior to completion. Significant code cleanup was done on the real time processes for all operating systems,  a few bugs that rarely occurred in some environments were identified and fixed.




New OFM Version  - June 5, 2012


OFM provides access to locked files on Windows platforms.  It is an extra cost add on to FRP.  For those of you who have OFM installed prior to the above release date this is a new version.
