"PlugSys today announces immediate availability of Max 2.0 Free
Edition, the 32-bit Xbase compiler for Linux and Windows providing
free registration to application developers worldwide. Using
classic Xbase commands and functions, Max developers write
character-based applications that access data from FoxPro, dBASE
and Clipper. To ensure scalability, Max also connects to all
popular SQL databases. The product can be downloaded from the
PlugSys.com web site."
"Xbase is still the workhorse scripting language around the
world. PlugSys quietly placed preview Linux and Win32 versions on
the company's web site last week. The download rate drove PlugSys
to add an FTP server and to post the release software on globally
distributed web sites (Simtel.net and TUCOWS.com)."
