2014-01-16: FME 2014 (build 14230) has been released.
Almost all the Japanese character problems has been solved. Wonderful!
This article ends up here. Thanks.
2014-01-12: I'm happy that the remaining issue (PR#50788) has been fixed in build 14229 :-)
Release coming soon!
2013-12-22: I tried FME 2014 Beta build 14223 for Mac OS X in Japanese environment.
It works fine. There were some problems related to Japanese characters in build 14205, but those have been solved now, and the workspace files (*.fmw) are compatible between Mac and Windows. Great.
2013-12-19: FME 2014 Beta build 14220 works fine in Japanese Windows. Great!
I confirmed that all the problems I reported last week have been solved. Although garbled characters sometimes appear on Log window, those are not so serious issues for me. I believe that those will be also solved in the near future.
Many many thanks for Safe's efforts.
Previous: Japanese character problem
I tried FME 2014 Beta build 14212 - 14218. The result, almost all the Japanese character problems occurring in FME 2013 or earlier have been solved. Wonderful!
Many thanks, Safe and the great developers.
However, found several new problems related to Japanese character unfortunately. I guess that some of them are side-effects caused by changing encoding of fmw file.
I've reported detailed situation to Safe via my reseller already, would appreciate some more efforts to solve them. Thanks in advance.
