This fall 2021 comes with several major OS releases: macOS Monterey (macOS 12), Windows 11, without forgetting Windows Server 2022. It is time for a quick sum-up of which 4D release – shipped or upcoming – supports which OS version!
To prevent session loss, 4D monitors the sleeping state of remote 4D applications.
When a user is connected from a remote 4D application to a 4D Server and their computer goes into sleep mode, the information is sent to 4D Server. At the moment the user’s computer wakes up, the remote 4D application then recovers its execution context.
Since 4D v19, you can start the compilation of a project with a simple command. You might be wondering what you can use this for!
Your team may consist of several developers, so why not automate the compilation at each code push on your source control server? It is always easier to identify an error when it is quickly detected.
Another case is when your project consists of several components. You can write a method that compiles, builds, and then copies the component to the host database.
This blog will discuss the different technical points that are very useful to create your own automation tools, along with an example application.

We’re thrilled to announce that 4D v19 is now available. It’s a major release that takes building business applications to new heights.
Tap into the power of Apple Silicon and immediately experience a performance boost thanks to Apple M1’s remarkable capabilities. Discover 4D’s redesigned architecture with Project mode and how it paves the way for the future. Run on-the-go businesses with 4D for iOS and achieve much, much more with the new features for the 4D language, ORDA, 4D Write Pro, and 4D View Pro.
Although it is by no means exhaustive, here’s a list of features we’ve got in store for you:
On Mac, application signature has become a standard, and since Big Sur, you can’t even run unsigned applications. In the past, we published a workaround to build client-server applications running on a Windows server and accepting connections from Mac clients. With the release of 4D v19, we have updated the application building in 4D to handle this case. Here is how you can build a single platform or a cross-platform application in v19.
Dark mode has been gaining a lot of ground recently. That’s why we’ve added support for it in 4D v19, and mentioned a few ways you can adjust it to your needs in the related announcement.
In this blog post, we’ll focus on CSS and explain in detail how to set CSS styles for light and dark modes using CSS media queries.
In continuous integration systems, every time code is submitted, or on an hourly basis, a compilation of the source code is automatically launched. This approach allows you to check merges on the code management server.
Starting from 4D v19, a new command allows you to launch code compilation, so you can set up this type of system.
We recently reviewed the formats of our logs to increase their readability and their compliance with automated analysis. We made these improvements in response to real-life situations we experienced, directly addressing issues that were hindering our ability to use 4D logs. In this blog post, we’ll explain in detail what changes we made so you can adjust your log analyzing tools accordingly.
As you may have noticed some time ago, 4D offers you a simple way to encrypt your data. Now, 4D also allows you to use the same algorithm as the one used for data encryption, but this time for your own needs. So now you can encrypt and decrypt any information you want, be it a single field in a table or external files.
