4D v19 R5 Beta starts today

Automatically translated from English

We’re thrilled to announce the launch of beta testing for 4D v19 R5. You told us where you are going next, and this release —like the one before and the ones to come — has the features to help you get there 🙌 

 

 

 

  • Besides introducing data contexts, 4D benefits from an upgraded SpreadJS version that brings many enhancements, such as the print interface. 4D View Pro is taking it to a whole new level.
  • 4D Write Pro has its share of new features: table headers, linked paragraphs, data contexts, and many improvements to the interface widgets — offering you even more possibilities to produce documents that meet your requirements.
  • We’re offering you better control over the ORDA contexts and cache for both Client/Server and REST to improve performance.
  • We completely reorganized the diagnostic logs, giving you a better-filtered content (log levels such as trace, debug, info, warn, and error).
  • And you can now get rid of unnecessary libraries (e.g., CEF/Web Area, PHP) to reduce the size of your applications.
  • Much more awaits you!

  • As for the 4D language, we couldn’t be more excited to share the many improvements we made available to elevate your coding experience. From jump statements and short-circuit evaluation to ternary operators and compound assignment operators.
