January 2010 Optional Updates are now available on the ECE site for POSReady 2009 and WEPOS. Included are the following:

  • GB18030 is a Chinese character encoding standard. Products sold in China must conform to this standard. The GB18030 Support package contains a font, system libraries, and an applet for installation on XP based systems, with the optional East Asian Language support installed, to meet these conformance requirements.

  • A File Based Write Filter update that addresses the following issues:

    • Resolves issues caused by the FbwfProcessWriteThroughList path buffer not being cleared. This issue may present symptoms including the following:

    • In the current session, FBWFMGR /display may not return accurate write through lists reflecting the fbwfmgr /addexclusion configuration. A correct write through list may not be returned until the following session.

    • A newly created file, even though listed in the exclusion list, may not persist after reboot, in particular files named tmp.

    • You may be able to rename a file to the same file name as a file listed in the exclusion list, in particular files named tmp. Expected behavior would return an error that the file cannot be renamed and the request is not supported.

    • Resolves a potential memory leak caused by the FBWF's failure to call the FreeCallback function, required to allow memory filters above FBWF to free their per-stream context.

    • Resolves a potential file deadlock, resulting from a FBWF incompatibility with a WMI API.

  • Microsoft YaHei Regular and Bold Version 5.00 for Windows XP to improve rendering of Simplified Chinese text in Windows Presentation Foundation.
