"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)."
