TemplateFx v2.47

 December 16th, 2015Dec 16th, 2015      

I am pleased to announce the release of Template v2.47 – a scriptable dynamic templating tool that enables you to write configuration templates once and deploy multiple times – never do the same thing twice. In addition, it now comes with a feature packed IPv4/IPv6 Subnet Calculator built in!

Download links and instructions can be found on the TemplateFx page.


The changes in this release are summarised below:

  • Speed improvements via threading – rows are now processed up to 8 in parallel.
  • Updated “ipsplit” function to limit the output to 1024 entries.
  • Updates to IP Calc for aggregating and deaggregating subnets.
  • Mask improvements to the IP helper functions.
  • Added support for “Copy List” functions on right click in the IP Calc.
  • Fixed a bug with JavaScript function “long2ip”, where n > 2^32 was allowed.
  • The “Errors” pane will now tell you which row the error occurred on.
  • Fixed a bug which caused an exception when using invalid splits for IP Calc.
  • Fixed a bug with the IPv6 “ipsplit” function.
  • Fixed a bug where IPv6 addresses were being returned as IPv4 addresses.
  • Fixed a bug where errors associated with <IF> blocks were generating exceptions.
  • Progress bar improvements to be a lot smoother while generating outputs.
  • Removed support for JavaScript variable “globals[]” due to threading.
  • Slightly changed the behaviour of the “counter()” JavaScript function.
  • Added another warning about using single quotes (‘) in the data pane.
  • Added support for including ‘#’ at start of line in the output by using ‘## ‘.
  • Fixed a casting issue which caused an Exception in the IP Calc.
  • Added command line option “/M” to minimise and background on start-up.
  • Updated HMAC comparison for decryption to mitigate timing attacks.

Feedback welcome as well as suggestions or enhancement requests or general queries!
