 ** Hot News **

  Integrated Foundation Classes (2020R2) Released!

 "THE" Framework for Appeon PowerBuilder & PowerServer!

(v2020.2.0.160 - August 8, 2020)

Actual application built from the Integrated framework!

        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 2020R2 (build 2020.2.0.160) exclusively for PowerBuilder 2019R2, PowerServer 2019 Web and PowerServer 2020 (Mobile & Web), and InfoMaker 2019 with new features, enhancements and upgrades!
     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 2019 R2 MR2353 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.
