New version of PHP 8
26 November 2020. A year earlier than planned, a group of enthusiasts released the eighth version of the popular programming language PHP. This version contains many fixes, useful functions and optimizations. The most significant change in PHP 8 is the use of a JIT compiler.
Silentium developers also took an active part in the development of this innovative product. Our specialists have improved the PDO driver for Firebird SQL Server. Its behavior is extremely important for web systems that are designed for our clients.
That is why the “execute block” function was ensured when working with parameters. It includes creating of stored procedures, functions, views and other active constructions. A bug was fixed when commenting out parameterized code.
In addition we have previously made the following improvements to the Firebird access driver. Namely these are Boolean type working, memory leaks fixing when using Blob fields, providing support for the 1st dialect of the SQL language.
From March 30 to May, 11 2020. President Vladimir Putin signed a decree declaring holidays in the Russian Federation from March 30 to May 11. Silentium Company office will not function during this period. Our employees will continue to work from home remotely.
Technical customer support will be provided by us in full mode. The software development department and the department of tax consulting will be available on personal cell phones. You can also send us a message directly from the website.
The new version “Horse-breeder Assistant”
1 March 2020 A new version of “Horse-breeder Assistant” has been released. This is already the 5th version of the software product. It includes many changes. New forms of reports appeared, the user interface was redesigned, a new structure of the main menu of the program was made. Now the system operates as part of a regional data collection in automatic mode. But the ability to transmit information on a flash drive and by email is left.
A process of distribution releases was improved. Now each farm receives a personal distributive, in which all the necessary settings are already made which ensures a quick start of the system. The update mechanism has been simplified as much as possible. The system itself downloads the necessary updates and installs them on a user's computer.
A full compatibility with the MS Windows 10 operation system has been achieved. A registration of the program on the workstation was improved. Starting June 1, 2020, technical support for the version of “Assistant Horse Breeder” version 4 is discontinued. Its work on new operating systems of the Microsoft Windows family is not guaranteed.
Victory at “Golden Autumn 2019” exhibition
From October 9 to October 12 2019 , the main agrarian forum of the country, Golden Autumn, was held at Exhibition of Achievements of National Economy in Moscow. The organizer of the exhibition is the Ministry of Agriculture of the Russian Federation.
The medals and diplomas of the 21st Russian Agricultural Exhibition were awarded the winners in the nominations "For effective information and consulting support for the agricultural sector"
The gold medal of the exhibition was received by the software product of our company Horses 3.0 Mobile. This application for the Android platform allows users to get complete information about horses, their pedigree and trials directly from the official database of pedigree horses of Russia, USSR, and former Russian Empire.
The application has both paid and free access to information and has been operating for 4 years, starting in September 2015
The new portal IPS “KONI-3”
17 june 2019 A new version of IPS “KONI-3” portal of All-Russian Scientific Research Institute of horse breeding is put into operation. The first realization of the eponymous Windows application started 9 years ago just in June 2010 Since then more and more new features have been added. All major groups of breeding horses of the Russian Federation were placed there.
Besides the thoroughbred breeds, trotter breeds trials data collecting was supplied. An automatic processing of electronic payments has provided. A selection of nicknames was made for horses. Integration with federal services (KLADR, FIAS) and with Information Analytical System of Joint-Stock Company “Russian Hippodromes” was ensured. GEO-processing of analytical data has organized and much more.
By the beginning of last year it became obvious that the old resource no longer meets the modern requirements of the development of Internet technologies and requires radical code refactoring, both of the appearance and the internal mechanisms for large volumes of information processing.
Our company has released a new version of this portal. Many sections were newly created (horse card, trails, mating activity, pedigree line, family). A cardinal optimization of both database queries and intermediate layer algorithms responsible for translation into European languages has been carried out.
As a result of all efforts, a completely new resource with a modern design and adaptive layout for mobile applications has been obtained. The system continues to evolve. We plan to make further improvements in it.

There were changes among the company's customers. If at first they were mostly commercial firms, then further they were joined by factories and scientific institutions. A number of projects in the field of agriculture have been carried out: poultry, horse breeding, pig breeding, as well as in the Ryazan region.

The new systems work, including at the republican level (The Republic of Bashkortostan, Udmurt Republic), at the level of the Russian country (All-Russian Scientific Research Institute of pedigree affair, All-Russian Research Institute of Horse Breeding, Ministry of Agriculture of Russian Federation). We actively propose standards for international cooperation.
