TemplateFx v2.50

I am pleased to announce the release of Template v2.50 – 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 and DNS lookup tool built in!

PLEASE UPGRADE: There is a major data corruption bug found in TemplateFx v2.47 to v2.49 that will corrupt the output – it is highly recommended that you upgrade to fix this issue.

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


The changes in this release are summarised below:

  • MAJOR BUG: Disabled threading globally as it was causing data corruption – Java’s ScriptEngine isn’t thread safe.
  • Added support for a JavaScript “date” function for adding or subtracting days, weeks, months or years.
  • Added support for a JavaScript “add_output_mutation” function for changing template output post generation.
  • Removed deprecated JavaScript function “clog” in favour of “console.log”.
  • New option “Cache JavaScript Libraries” to toggle cacheing of internal and external libs on first run (enabled by default).
  • Removed support for using the system DNS search list – it used an internal API which is no longer available in Java 9.
  • Added support for “Prev Network” and “Next Network” in the “IP Calc” pane.
  • Enhanced the “IP Calc” pane with respect to DNS lookups – now supports specifying name servers and a DNS search list.
  • The “nslookup” function now follows CNAME records when resolving hostnames.
  • TemplateFx now reports more status information when generating outputs.
  • Added a “Check for Updates” option on the “Help” menu.

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