ProVUE Development on Monday announced the release of Panorama 5.5, a significant update to their database software for Mac OS X and Windows. It costs $299, with upgrades starting at $89.95.
Panorama is a RAM-based database program that can operate much faster than databases designed to leverage disk-based files instead. It can import and export a variety of different data formats and features support for Excel, includes data analysis tools and supports AppleScript, UNIX shell scripts and other scripting tools.
New to this release is improved search capabilities with bookmarks and formula search, direct exchange between databases and Excel spreadsheets, support for the QIF, OFX and QFX file formats used by Quicken and many financial institutions; auto conversion of forms and reports into PDF and more.
