    Exclamation DataFlex 18.0 Release Candidate 2 now available!

    Welcome to the DataFlex 18.0 Release Candidate 2

    Data Access Worldwide is pleased to announce the availability of DataFlex 2014 - 18.0 - Release Candidate 2!

    You can download the latest build (18.0.20.9) at:

    ftp://ftp.dataaccess.com/pub/product...tware/testing/

    ftp://ftp.dataaccess.com/pub/product...uild_Notes.htm

    We are excited to introduce the "new look" of Data Access Worldwide and the DataFlex family of products.

    Earlier this year, we outlined our product vision and a multi-step series of company and product re-branding changes to come. Two of them are occurring almost simultaneously today: the introduction of our new logos and the publishing of the release candidate of the first product that proudly uses them: DataFlex 2014/18.0.

    Our new look represents more than a graphical design change. It symbolizes the unique combination of strength, openness, continuity and innovation that you rely on from Data Access Worldwide and DataFlex.

    Compatibility Notes
    If you are migrating DataFlex 17.1 Web Framework applications that use manually loaded lists and grids you will need to deal with a n interface change. The improvements in those controls required a change to a struct and there are minor changes required to application code that directly manipulates that struct. The What's New has detailed instructions.

    Client Web Services - Version 18.0 has significant changes in client web-service parsing and processing. If you are using client web services we would really value your testing feedback. Import some of your existing services and see what you get. Note that the new parser allows you to now create classes using a variety of options. Some of these options will result in class code changes, which may require other changes in your application.
