We are pleased to announce that 4D v16 R4 is the very first version where the whole 4D Windows 64-bit product line is no longer relying on the Mac2Win library from Altura! As announced in last April, in this strategy announcement post, we have done the work on 4D Server Windows 64-bit, which was the last step to reach.
Our Windows 64-bit product line can now fully take advantage of some modern technologies and make you benefit from it, such as support of Single Document Interface (SDI) windows for instance, also delivered with 4D v16 R4!
After the advanced list usage completely covered with 4D v16, 4D v16 R4 reaches a major step toward with 4D View Pro by providing our customers with the first step of our 4D View Pro spreadsheet solution, provided as a preview.
I am pleased to announce that the beta testing of 4D v16 R4 starts today! 4D v16 R4 is one of the feature-richest R-release ever delivered! There is so much to tell, I don’t know what to start with…
4D v16 R4 beta introduces 4 major product features, among others:
- A major 4D language enhancement with the object notation, making the developer’s life easier!
- Real tables in 4D Write Pro, answering the most-asked feature request for the old 4D Write.
- The Single Document Interface (SDI) mode making your Windows 64-bit application entering a new world where application windows are all independent!
- The first step of the 4D View Pro spreadsheet as a Preview, lifting the veil on a powerful spreadsheet solution for your 64-bit applications.
Upgrade now and benefit from the power of 4D v16 R3, available today for download!
Take advantage of our new features to optimize your programming productivity and easily design your custom 4D Write Pro interfaces in just a few clicks.
Keisuke Miyako, Technical Service Manager from 4D Japan, presents at 4D Summit Paris 2016 how the 4D transformation tag feature has been highly empowered with 4D v16. If you are not using 4D tags yet – be sure you’ll be thrilled to start using it asap after watching that video!
The whole 4D Blog team would like to thank all of you, for your great participation to our Easter Egg Hunt 2017! We used the opportunity of a fun event to advertise about our blog, and it has been very successful, so thank you!
This is where the question on everyone’s lips arrives… Who are the winners?
4D is moving forward to provide you with a full Altura-free Windows product line. This will allow us to internally use some modern technologies and make you benefit from it, such as support of Single Document Interface (SDI) windows for instance.
End of last year, we did a first announcement to share with you how we will proceed with the removal of Altura. With 4D v16 R2, we have delivered the Altura-free final version of 4D Developer Edition and 4D Volume Desktop Windows 64-bit. The last step is 4D Server, and this will happen in a near future. We are actually going to remove Altura library from 4D Server Windows 64 bits in a coming 4D v16 R-release.
I am pleased to announce that the beta testing of 4D v16 R3 starts today! So what are the new features available in 4D v16 R3 beta?
New perspectives using standard actions
The 4D Community is one of the reason of the success of 4D. Brent Raymond, Senior Software Architect from the Art Institute of Chicago, presents at 4D Summit Portland 2016 the 4DMethod user group: its role, what topics are discussed, how meetings are held…
Cache management is actually a key element of the database management, Laurent Ribardière presents at 4D Summit Portland 2016 the new cache manager he implemented in the 4D v16 64-bit version.
Before watching the technical presentation with details about the implementation, we recommend to start with these two blog posts, describing the feature benefit itself:
