Paradigma Ships Valentina 2.2 Universal Binary for C++ MacAnnounces Valentina Mac-on-Intel strategy (February 21, 2006)
Leading multi-platform database vendor Paradigma Software, Inc, makers of the ultra-fast Valentina 2 Office Server, announce its Mac-on-Intel strategy and the release of Valentina 2.2 for C++ for MacOS.
Valentina 2s next generation, object-relational database model builds on the traditional relational database model much like C++ builds on top of the C language. All that you know from working with traditional database systems from IBM, Oracle and Microsoft also apply to Valentina-based development. This robust technology excels at ultra fast management of millions of records.
Valentina 2.2 Technology release includes Valentina 2.2 ADK C++ for Mac, which includes a universal binary version for developing powerful database solutions for Apple's Macintosh on Intel. Valentina 2 C++ ADK Standard Edition for Macintosh is available for use with Apple xCode for $199. In addition, Valentina Studio, Admin Edition 2.2 Mac ($59), in open beta, is immediately downloadable and also in universal binary format. Valentina Office Server universal binary version is under development.
Version 2.2 includes several additional performance improvements in all Valentina 2.x based products. The Application Developer Kit for Macromedia Director includes a single new function that allows execution of almost any SQL command. The ADK for REAL Software's REALbasic include new ODBC related record navigation methods and new ArraySet and BitSet functions.
"Valentina ADKs provide the best database engine available to Mac OS X developers, and it is now available on Intel processors without having to resort to Rosetta emulation. As soon as all IDE vendors complete their ports to support the new Mac-on-Intel architecture, they will find us waiting we are ready," said Lynn Fredricks, president of Paradigma Software.
All customers who have licenses for the Valentina 2.x products will get the upgrade to 2.2 for no additional cost.
