Swiss developer Calerga announced on Friday the release of
Sysquake 3, an update to its scientific computational software that features a rewritten interface for both running applications and developing them with the new Application Builder, which you can use to create stand-alone, royalty-free tools that use the Sysquake graphic user interface. In addition, Sysquake 3 offers new extensions with support for MySQL and SQLite databases, TCP/IP and audio input and output. Sysquake’s extensions also allow developers to add new functions to the software, although this feature is not part of Application Builder.
Pricing is CHF 2,500 (Swiss francs) (US$2,028) for a single license and CHF 11,250 ($9,127) for 10 licenses; educational pricing is CHF 1,000 ($811) and CHF 4,500 ($3,650), respectively. Calerga asks you to contact them for site license pricing and also notes that a 30 percent discount is available to Sysquake 2 users until Jan. 15, 2005. The company says that the software runs in Mac OS X but doesn’t specify the minimum version required.
