REALbasic for Linux Beta

REAL Software announced today that REALbasic 2005 for Linux, a new visual development environment for Linux, is available for public beta and can be downloaded now from http://www.realsoftware.com/demo. REALbasic 2005 for Linux Standard Edition will be offered for free when it ships in August. "REALbasic 2005 for Linux provides a solution to two issues in the Linux market," stated Geoff Perlman, president and CEO of REAL Software. "First is the lack of a good Visual Basic-like development environment and the second is the lack of desktop software for Linux. We believe Linux users can benefit from using REALbasic's powerful, visual development capabilities." REALbasic 2005 for Linux Standard Edition makes it easy to create software for Linux and features the following: Visual rapid application development (RAD) environment. Highly compatible with Visual Basic and includes a utility to migrate existing applications to REALbasic. Modern, fully object-oriented language that compiles to machine code. REAL SQL Database, a single-user database engine based on SQLite, a public domain database engine. Low and high-level networking capabilities (UDP, TCP, HTTP, SMTP, POP3). Industrial-strength XML parser and generator enables you to read and write XML data with a few lines of code. Royalty-free software distribution. Compatible with major x86 Linux distributions, including SUSE, RedHat, Mandriva/Mandrake, with GTK+ 2.0 (or higher), Glibc-2.3 (or higher) and CUPS (Common UNIX Printing System). REALbasic 2005 for Linux Professional Edition includes all Standard Edition features and more advanced features, such as: Cross-platform compilation from Linux to Windows (98-XP) and Mac OS X. Creation of console applications. Server Socket enables the creation of powerful server applications. Create multi-user database applications and connect to Oracle, Microsoft SQL Server, FileMaker Server, MySQL, PostgreSQL, Sybase or any ODBC data source.
