Who would know: dBASE still alive and being updated
Posted on 16-Aug-2005 22:37 by M Freitas. | Tags Filed under: Blog.



That is interesting news: dBASE is still being updated! The database/language/application generator has been in the market for more than 20 years and it is still being improved.

I am just reading a press release of dBASE PLUS 2.6, which seems to add a few new Windows-oriented features. According to the information sent to the press, this new version includes more than three dozen new features and is the first version of dBASE PLUS to include support for Windows XP Themes and Visual Styles, for the IDE and for the application.

The software seems to support all major database formats according to their site, but I can't find a list of databases or connectors. It works with Microsoft Windows and Windows-compatible networks including Windows NT, Novell and peer-to-peer networks.

This is interesting for me because before I started working with mainframes, twenty years ago, I learned about coding with Basic, Cobol and dBASE on a CP/M environment. From there to Clipper, and then to a mainframe platform, with scalable databases, high performance tables, etc.
