LP 8.5, Chart FX go beta

OmniPilot Software today announced that Lasso Professional (LP) 8.5 and Chart FX for Lasso are now in public beta, and that Lasso developers can sign up to participate in the testing phase. Chart FX for Lasso allows developers to add graphically dynamic charts to Web applications, while Lasso Professional 8.5 attempts to take Lasso beyond Web scripting. The Lasso Professional update is a Universal Binary, offering native support for both PowerPC and Intel-based Macs. The beta release includes support for Lasso Ajax tags; numerous native data sources including MySQL and FileMaker; built-in LDAP integration; the ability to specify data sources with "inlines;" shell support, and email enhancements.

Chart FX for Lasso is being developed for Mac, Linux, and Windows platforms, according to OmniPilot. Chart FX for Lasso features borders, 2D & 3D, rotation & perspective, transparency & anti-aliasing, labeling, gradients, constants, series attributes, customized legends, and others.

Chart FX for Lasso Developer will be included for free with Lasso Developer 8.5, to be released at the end of April. Additionally, the Chart FX Designer for Eclipse will be included within Lasso Studio for Eclipse, and retains its price of $200. Chart FX for Lasso is priced at $1,000 (system requirements were unavailable).
