STD Integrated Foundation Classes - Maintenance Release 2019R2-1

** Hot News **

  Integrated Foundation Classes (2019R2-1) Released!

 "THE" Framework for Appeon PowerBuilder & PowerServer!

(v2019.2.1.132 - June 12, 2019)
Actual application built from the Integrated framework!

        Software Tool & Die Inc (STD) are very pleased to announce that they have just released a new maintenance version of their Integrated Foundation Class library framework 2019R2-1 (build 2019.2.1.132) exclusively for PowerBuilder 2017R3, PowerServer 2017 Web and PowerServer 2017 Mobile builds 1880!
     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 the current PowerBuilder and/or PowerServer products, positions developers to take advantage of today's Agile and DevOps methodologies. Plus it further enhances a new GUI "punch" in your Native, Web and Mobile Apps without buying expensive add-on products.

    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 #1880. Testing inside of PB included Win32 (both P-code & M-code) and Win64 (P-code) deployments. Testing inside of PowerServer Web & Mobile included latest Web Browsers, latest Apple Tablet / Smart Phone and Android Tablet / Smart Phone deployments.

Note: All the STD frameworks are free and can be downloaded from its STD Foundation Classes SourceForge project website..
