March 2024 Hotfix #2

The release introduces the following enhancements to the application framework:

  • (OAuth) The TextUtlity.ToUniversalTime() method is used to parse the dates serialized in the OAuth data entries. This resolves the incorrect date parsing that was occuring in some locales. The error was reported as "String was not recognized as valid DateTime".
  • (Framework) The TextUtilities.ParseYamlOrJson() method will parse JSON without attempting to detect the "date" values. The serialized dates must be converted from the "string" type to the corresponding "date" type explicitly (REST Level 2). This avoids incorrect processing during the OAuth 2.0 authorization.
  • (RESTul) The $app.restful() method will correctly process requests with the query parameter when the url is specified explicitly.
  • (App Gen) The app generator will make up to 10 attempts to modify the configuration file of IIS Express when starting apps. This may be required when IIS Express is installed for the first time and performs the construction of its configuration files.
  • (App Gen) Enhanced the detection of the installed Microsoft IIS Express.
  • (App Gen) The App Studio is started even when the [Documents]\IISExpress folder does not exist. This ensures the successful creation of the first project on the workstations that have not had VS or IISExpress installed.
  • (App Gen) The new entries in the Sync.*.xml logs are time-stamped with the UTC dates. This ensures the correct merging of the App Studio and legacy Project Designer log entries.
