What to Expect in NCache 5.3 SP1
The details of all the features and enhancements in this release are provided below.
Register Evaluation through NCache Web Manager
For NCache images available on Azure and AWS, the registration for a free evaluation of NCache is supported in NCache Web Manager. When a machine is not registered either with evaluation or a license key, the NCache Web Manager’s default screen takes users to a registration process to either start their evaluation or activate their boxes.
NCache NoSQL Renamed to NCache Persistence
The feature ‘NCache NoSQL’ released in 5.3 has been renamed to ‘NCache Persistence’. The working of the feature remains the same, however, the additional providers are removed. The NCache Persistence can now only be used with the built-in file system-based store.
All NoSQL related counters and PowerShell cmdlets have also been renamed.
Separate NuGet Package for NCache CLR Store Procedures
A separate NuGet package is released for NCache CLR Stored Procedures. This facilitates the creation of CLR Stored Procedures that use NCache API.
Support for Connection Options in NCache SignalR Backplane
Instead of using configurations specified in client.ncconf for NCache SignalR, users can force SignalR applications to use the connection options specified in web.config or appsettings.json files of the application. If specified, the application will use these settings.
Refresh Interval Value Changed from Minutes to Seconds
The refresh interval value can now be set in seconds instead of minutes in NCache Startup Loader and Refresher. The change has been made to accommodate scenarios where the refresher should run at an interval of less than a minute.
MapReduce, Aggregator, and Memcached Integration Marked Deprecated
MapReduce, Aggregator, and Memcached integration are marked deprecated and will be removed in the next version.
