TUR and Users Activity are now optional

CCS5 has long been offering these two features that are enabled by default. However, they are required only in a handful of projects, and may cause inconvenience for others. Therefore, we have decided to turn them off by default, and projects that need them can still enable them in settings. TUR (Test Utilisation Reports) provide […]

Tcl package for the TLS protocol is deprecated

This announcement affects only users of the TclTLS package. TSC and CCS5 installers do not include this package and the OpenSSL library anymore due to the following. TclTLS is 3rd-party open source software that has been long abandoned. It doesn’t work with current releases of OpenSSL 3.x. Moreover, there’s a 6 years old bug that […]

Tcl packages to access MySQL and PostgreSQL are deprecated

This announcement affects only users of the mysqltcl and Pgtcl packages. These are 3rd-party open source packages that haven’t been supported by their respective authors for many years, and we received a number of bug reports related to them. Therefore, these packages are planned for removal in the next CCS5 release. Instead of them we […]

Synopter is deprecated

After 15+ years of service, we are preparing to bid our farewell to SYN: synoptic editing and animation package. It has served well our users, but Terma needs to adapt to the changing demands of the market and software landscape.

Deprecation of 32 bit releases of CCS and uNIS

In order to provide improved support of current platforms, we have made a decision to deprecate 32 bit Windows releases of CCS and uNIS. For the last few years we have been delivering CCS exclusively for 64 bit platforms, and the 32 bit uNIS was never used. This will enable us to provide maintenance and […]

32-bit builds of TSC are deprecated

Due to low interest, we have decided to stop maintaining the 32-bit TSC build. The only reason to keep it was the CMDVS(1) data source that is not used anymore. Please note that the CMDVS2 data source plugin for C-STS FE equipment is available in the 64-bit TSC.The daily build has been removed from the […]

Time input is now consistent across the system

Time input interpretation has been harmonised across the system. You may need to double-check your sequences for correctness of time arguments to TOPE commands.When a time argument is passed to a TOPE command (e.g. tcsend or utope::processtmpacket), the system will interpret it in the following order: ISO time raw archive time (nanoseconds from the 1970 […]

Improvements in the MIB loading process

The system’s behaviour (TM&TC) generally remains consistent with previous versions, but the system is more rigorous in checking the loaded contents, especially where duplicates appear after merging several MIB’s.You are not obliged to clean up duplicates immediately, but you will see warnings. These warnings are correct, and you should clean up as soon as it […]

Text and numeric curves are allowed to have the same name

Therefore, remember to set a proper PCF_CATEG depending on calibration curves.The new release enforces that when a curve is textual (TXF/TXP) PCF_CATEG must be set to “S”, and not “N”. MIB ICD 6.9 page 46 specifies this.The reason is that SCOS2000 allows curves in CAF and TXF to have the same name, distinguished only by […]

Stored procedure permission with MySQL

The treatment for an error “Execute command denied for routine”.It may happen, when MySQL is the configured database, and TMIDX is getting large, that user ‘ccsuser’ doesn’t have sufficient privileges to execute stored procedures. Some users encounter this problem after a CCS upgrade, and ‘ccsuser’ had not previously been configured with these privileges.In this case, […]
