Runtime Labs announced the release of MacSQL 2.5, the latest update to their database management system for the Mac.
MacSQL enables Web and application developers to hook into popular database systems. It provides spreadsheet-style viewing and editing of remote data, Applescript support, PHP and Perl script generation via an assistant, and much more. It runs natively in Mac OS 9 and X.
The new version is now Mac OS X 10.2 compatible, and features native Oracle and OpenBase support on Mac OS X. It has full Unicode support for making queries, supports BLOB via AppleScript, exports XML, and has numerous other enhancements, bug fixes and performance improvements.
Available in both a US$99 “Lite” and $249 full version, MacSQL requires PowerPC-equipped Mac with Mac OS 9.x or later. Access to a supported database is also required. A demo version which expires after 10 days is available for download.
