Austin, Texas – Real Software, creator of object-oriented, cross-platform software development tools for the web and desktop, today announced the latest version of its flagship product, Real Studio. Real Studio 2012 Release 1 contains a record 350 improvements and 3 new features: OS X Mountain Lion support, Webkit support for HTMLViewer on Windows and a new way for SQLite BLOBs that allows data in a BLOB to be added sequentially, making it much faster and more responsive. Additionally, this release significantly strengthens Real Studio’s Cocoa support.
“Focusing on the quality updates that will improve Real Studio developer’s efficiency and overall experience is one of our top priorities. This release is monumental for us because it includes the greatest number of improvements we have ever made to the product in any one release cycle, exponentially increasing product reliability,” commented Geoff Perlman, Real Software Founder and CEO.
Perlman continues, “Cocoa support has been dramatically advanced with this release with over 65 specific improvements. Though still labeled beta, Cocoa works for 99% of our users when they simply recompile their projects. With more and more things becoming Cocoa only, our work on Cocoa support makes this transition easy for Real Studio developers.”
“Real Studio Web Edition lets us develop and deliver distributed groupware solutions that would take much more time and money to develop as traditional multi-platform client/server applications,” offered Brad Hutchings of Hutchings Software and NetForce, Inc. “This release of Real Studio offers enhancements and fixes that make it even more useful and valuable when developing for the web.”
Real Studio 2012 Release 1 Features:
* OS X Mountain Lion Support: The Real Studio IDE and apps made with Real Studio will work on Mountain Lion, Apple’s latest update to Mac OS X.
* Webkit Support for HTMLViewer: The HTMLViewer on Windows now uses Webkit, a layout engine that renders web pages in the browser.
* SQLite BLOB Support: A new way of handling BLOBs on SQLite is introduced in this release making it faster and more responsive.
