on Monday announced that it’s shipping REALbasic 2007 Release 2, the latest update to its cross-platform development environment. A free update for current users, REALbasic 2007 is priced starting at $99.
REALbasic provides the framework developers need to create application software for Mac OS X, Windows or Linux operating systems. It can be used to create utilities, enterprise software and more.
New to REALbasic 2007 Release 2 is an incremental compiler — now, the development tool will only compile the parts of the project that have changed since the last compile. This provides faster compilation — up to twice as fast, according to REAL Software.
Improvements have also been made to the debugger, which now shows the values of more objects and allows more application properties and variables to be changed while debugging. RTF support has been improved, as well.
