just in time you can release the current PTV xLocate Server 184.108.40.206 together with the other PTV xServer product family. Following release is yet downloadable at PTV Developer Zone/CustomerArea in case of valid access:
- PTV xlocate Server version 220.127.116.11 (linux-x64/x86-preview)
- PTV xlocate Server version 18.104.22.168 (win-x64/x86-preview)
Following improvements can be expected:
New Feature: A first 64-bit preview xLocate version is available. Improvement: Updated 3rd party components such as Apache Tomcat to current versions. Improvement: The documentation and management console come with the new PTV group layout. Improvement: The Score.TotalScore is now calculated using result- fields Town.Classification, PostalCode.Classification, and Street.Classification. Each classification is mapped to a value. The sum of these values is divided by the maximum reachable value for this result address. It is displayed as a percentage. Due to this change, the sorting order of some results may be different. Improvement: New search indices were introduced in order to allow to find all street directories for a given town or postcode. This improves the result quality especially in USA. Improvement: The determination of the postcode classification ignores word separators. Therefore the total score increases if you request wrong white spaces in the postcode input. Furthermore, the extra info 'MatchingPostalcodeDigits' ignores wrong white spaces in the postcode input. If an extended postcode result has empty data in town and street fields, these fields are considered as exact. Improvement: A new switch named ExtensiveSearch has been introduced, which bypasses early filtering of candidates by internal score. This way more candidates can reach the pareto filter.
