REALbasic 2006 Release 3
REAL Software today released REALbasic 2006 Release 3 for Macintosh with over 100 new features and fixes, including a wide variety of options for customizing user interfaces, both for REALbasic and for the applications it creates. REALbasic is a rapid application development (RAD) environment that can migrate Visual Basic applications to Linux and Mac OS X, creaties cross-platform applications from a single set of source code, offers integrated and external database database support, and more. Release 3 also includes support for version control format with the ability to save and export projects in text format for use with version control systems such as CVS and Subversion. It also can now check for errors without having to build an application and offers improved project navigation.

It is a free update; upgrades from previous versions start at $50, while the Standard Edition starts starts at $100 and the Professional Edition, required for cross-platform deployment, is $500.
