        Software Tool & Die Inc (STD) are very pleased to announce that they have just released a new version of their Integrated Foundation Class library framework 2018R4 (build 2018.4.0.121) exclusively for PowerBuilder 2017R3, PowerServer 2017 Web and PowerServer 2017 Mobile builds 1858! In particular, the updated framework release addresses PB2017R3's new oAuth, Encoding, Decoding, Encryption and Decryption features.
  
     STD are also very excited as this release represents another significant enhancement to the Integrated framework that really further exemplifies the power of the Appeon PowerBuilder 2017R3 development environment! The new framework combined with PowerBuilder and/or PowerServer products, positions developers to take advantage of today's Agile and DevOps methodologies. Plus it puts a complete new GUI "punch" in your Native, Web and Mobile Apps without buying expensive add-on products.

     For a summary of the previous framework version's feature sets for 2018, please follow these links - 2018R1, 2018R2 and 2018R3
  
   The following are some of the key highlights of the new R4 Integrated Foundation Class library and Appeon PowerBuilder 2017R3 versions at work, as follows:

New look & feel

New modern UI & UX!

Hint Text User Objects

Hint Text for EditMask,  SLE and MLE object classes

System Functions

System Functions mapped in the "Controller" class. Just type "SF." for autoscript list at your fingertips!

    The latest Integrated framework version contains the following updates and has been tested with MS-Windows 10 O/S (Spring Creator Edition), PB 2017R3 and the PowerServer 2017 builds #1858. Testing inside of PB included Win32 (both P-code & M-code) and Win64 (P-code) deployments.
