REALbasic 2008 R4 ships

REAL Software says it has posted Release 4 of REALbasic 2008, its cross-platform development tool. The new version of the software adds several different features, most notably codesign for Mac applications, which allows them to be signed. This in turn lets people trace an application back to its original creator, and avoid authorizing apps installed through Leopard Server every time they are launched.

Developers can now also set several new warnings, including on a per-project basis, and use constants in declarations. Controls can be locked to avoid accidental editing, and tabbing can be adjusted to cycle in a particular order for users, or skip over certain controls. REALbasic Personal Edition costs $100, while Professional (needed for cross-platform work) is $500; language translations have been expanded to include Spanish.
