With great excitement, we announce the availability of the Release Candidate for DataFlex 2021!
The Release Candidate marks the end of the refinement and bug fixing phase from the prior Beta releases published in October, November and December. DataFlex 2021 is ready for serious development and testing with your applications!
To get started with DataFlex 2021:
About the DataFlex 2021 Release Candidate
DataFlex 2021 allows developers to build 64-bit and 32-bit applications in the Studio and to use and integrate Unicode - the global standard for character data. The Release Candidate enables developers to learn, migrate, develop and test the new capabilities - get started now!
For an overview of DataFlex 2021, watch Harm Wibiers presentation from EDUC 2020.
For details about the changes delivered in the Release Candidate, see this forum post.
While considerable investment has been made in the "continuity" for which DataFlex is well known, some changes are required to take advantage of both 64-bit and Unicode. The Release Candidate is the ideal version to begin converting existing 32-bit DataFlex applications to 64-bit and adopting Unicode in applications!
Two "Technology Previews, two Alpha versions and three Beta versions of DataFlex 2020 have been released since the start of the project, and a wealth of 64-bit and Unicode knowledge from early adopters is already available in the Data Access forum.
We look forward to your additional feedback in the testing forum!
