FutureBASIC 4 release 4

Staz Software today released FutureBASIC 4 Release 4, an update to the BASIC language compiler for Mac programmers that boasts double the compile speed of the previous version. Faster compilations are the result of streamlining the compiler's workflow and modernizing the source code, according to the company, and a new group of commands optionally replaces the INDEX$ series of statements. The new CFIndex commands offer increased speed and easier localization with the use of Core Foundation strings instead of Pascal Strings. The update also includes a new CFIndexSort to automate sorting. Numerous bug fixes include repairs to the Find/Change routines, modifications to the Edit and Script menus, mouse wheel support for the project window, and a general 'smoothing' of other minor inconsistencies. Work on the Intel compiler is still underway, according to Staz. FutureBASIC is available for $170, with a yearly subscription renewal priced at $100. The IDE requires Mac OS 9.2 or later or Mac OS X 10.2 or later.
