This Week's Topics


Comments from the Editor
Sybase announced the availability of the beta for PowerBuilder 12 today. I used PowerBuilder back in the 90s. I even co-authored a series of three books that never managed to get published. It is interesting to see that PowerBuilder continues to evolve and survive in the world. With version 12, the Microsoft .NET Framework is supported. While Sybase claims this new release will be one of the most significant releases in the products history, I have to wonder what makes it so significant.

Out of curiosity, are you (or your company) still using PowerBuilder? If so, drop me an email — or post a comment if you are reading this newsletter online. I'd be curious to know if you are doing new development.

If you are interested in more on the PowerBuilder 12 beta, you can go to www.sybase.com/powerbuilder12beta.

Until next week...

Brad!
