Today we released MapInfo Pro 2019.1 update. It is available as a trial download on a web and as maintenance upgrade to existing customers through Digital River:
We all know that a whole world is now going through a very tough times, but I am glad to see the team staying focused and getting an important update delivered to customers.
Highlights of the release:
Python Language Support: Python 3.7.6 x64 is installed with MapInfo Pro in the installation directory in the Python37 folder. MapInfo Pro uses the PythonNet implementation to interact with the Python environment and allow interop between .NET and Python. Multiple modules (numpy, scipy, seaborn, pandas, matplotlib, osgeo, ptvsd, mi_py_debugger) are preinstalled and can be used out of the box. Installation of additional modules is supported as well. "Run Application" MapBasic statement now supports executing *.py files.
Improvements in Select By Location Dialog: now you can specify the name of the results table, have an option to display results in a new Browser window, add results to topmost Map window, add color override to results added to the map, find results in a Map or Browser window and execute the query without changing current selection.
Quick Search: if you are connected to internet, MapInfo Marketplace content is now searchable.
Save/Restore AddIN Ribbon Controls on QAT: Using the IRibbon.SaveRibbonState() and IRibbon.LoadRibbonState() methods, you can save or restore a control added to the ribbon to the QAT.
4K Monitor support: Improved dialog listbox scaling on 4K monitor.
Heat Maps: on the Heatmap dialog box, we have added the Select Column option to enable you to specify the column from the input table that will be used to weighting calculations on a column value.
Updates in the Raster Calculator tool: we have added more functions to the Calculator tool to support bitwise operations. These functions can be applied to unsigned integers.
Enhancements in the Raster Contour Dialog Box: we have added Match Colors to Input checkbox on the main panel of the Contour dialog box. This checkbox is used for coloring the contour lines/polygons according to the color scheme of the input raster.NOTE: This update includes a single installer that allows you to install English, Japanese, French, German, Swedish, Danish, Finnish, Russian, Dutch, Italian, Simplified Chinese, Portuguese, Spanish, Polish, Czech, Turkish and Hebrew languages. Please give it a try!Andrei

In previous 64 bit versions of Pro, the 'set next document parent' statement did not work.
We have now re-enabled it to work for the map window and the browser window only.
In addition, The COM callback 'StatusBarTextChanged' was not being called in the same way it was in 32 bit versions of Pro. Starting with v2019.1 it should now be called in a way that is compatible with the 32 bit versions.
The status bar text should match 32 bit, with new fields coming at the end (CoordSys Name, current Map mini toolbar name).
MapBasis help topic: Control DocumentWindow clause
Note: This clause works only for map and browser windows in the 64-bit versions of MapInfo Pro starting with 2019.1
