4D Web 2.0 Pack v11.2
Developer 4D says it has published v11.2 of the Web 2.0 Pack, a combination of its Ajax Framework and For Flex packages. The suite is intended for developing rich Internet and desktop applications, and includes a variety of tools and plug-ins designed to simplify the process. Aside from Ajax and Flex, the software supports platforms such as AIR and Google Gears.
A key change in the software is improved iPhone/iPod touch support, which now lets users add and edit data from the device. Included in this is an offline mode toggled through a Settings menu, which lets users create data and then upload it when a connection becomes available.
This offline technology extends to Google Gears and HTML 5 browsers in general, including Safari 3 and Firefox 3. The Ajax client and framework have meanwhile been given AIR support, and the suite comes with Bridge 2.0, which manages both 4D data and 4DAF objects. The Web 2.0 Pack costs $600.
