Paradigma Software has updated the Valentina Database Line to version 1.6. The new version includes minor bug fixes and feature enhancements. According to Paradigma Software:
Version 1.6 of the Valentina database core technology adds enhancements over its release 1.5 for use of database cursors and use of SQL. Version 1.6 increases performance of using database cursors and allows each cursor to exist in its own independent memory space. Version 1.6 also adds support for two additional SQL commands. Since its 1.0 release, all Valentina products have gained speed and performance enhancements in working with different file types and importing data, as well as many fixes. A list of all updates and enhancements is available on the Paradigma Software Web Site.
The technology upgrade appears in all Valentina database products:
Valentina 1.6, the scriptable database management system. Database designers or anyone skilled at scripting can work with Valentina and any AppleScript friendly interface builder such as Digital Technology's FaceSpan or IncWell's SuperCard product.
Valentina 1.6 SDK for Macintosh OS, and Valentina SDK for Windows 95/98/NT, allow developers to add powerful database functionality to applications developed in Metrowerks CodeWarrior environment, and Microsoft Visual C++ development product.
Valentina for REALbasic 1.6, a set of add-on classes for REAL Software's popular REALbasic 2.0 professional development environment for Macintosh and Windows, also gains additional functionality with its newest release. Programs developed with V4RB 1.6 can read and write raw data for added flexibility in storing non-text data. V4RB 1. 6 also adds additional facilities for debugging code associated with database-enabled applications.
The Valentina Line starts at US$49.95 for the basic version, while the SDK version is available for US$699.95. Version 1.6 is free for registered users of version 1.5. You can find more information at the Paradigma Software web site.
