dBASE Plus 2.8 ist da!

wie Michael J. Rozlog mitteilt, ist die neue Version dBASE Plus 2.8
heute erschienen. Wie ich der Übersicht "dBASE Plus 2.8 (Build 2210)
Features and Fixes" entnehmen konnte, wurden wohl alle gemeldeten Bugs der
Version 2.70.3 gefixt. Genaueres gibt es hier:

Das Update ist für Lizenznehmer (Original: current owners) der
2.70.x-Versionen kostenlos.

Damit wären wir ja wieder einen Schritt weiter :)

April 23, 2012

Today I am pleased to announce dBASE 2.8—the latest version of our
legendary database management system! This product announcement comes
just a few weeks after the launch of our new company, dBase LLC.

features to market.

I am also delighted to tell you that we are offering the dBASE 2.8 upgrade

across the entire Microsoft Windows® Operating System lines of products,
including Microsoft Vista and Windows 7.

We have also made significant quality and foundational improvements that will
make dBASE 2.8 run better and more stable on all platforms. The new version
is still built on the dBASE 2.70.x architecture, which supported a new compiler
and build approach that have been well received by long-time users.

In addition, we are including with all dBASE 2.8 new purchases or upgrades a
FREE copy of The dBASE Book, the 686-page definitive work on the dBASE
product, written by Ken Mayer, one of the world’s leading authorities on
dBASE and how to get the most out of the product. The book is a $50 value.

The dBASE Book is aimed at developers of dBASE applications from beginner
to advanced, and will assist developers in getting up to speed quickly with the
dBASE Object model. It covers dBASE application development from design to

Here’s what one recent reviewer wrote: “A must have for any dBASE user. I
started out with dBASE III some years back, and the product continues to
blow the doors off of the competition on many levels. This is the book to have
to help guide your dBASE tables, applications, and other developments.
Concise, to the point, and, importantly, authored by a long time user. It
greatly helped my transition from programming in dBase 5.0 to the new

Pricing for dBASE 2.8 is $399 for the standard full package and $299 for the
full version upgrade.

Michael J. Rozlog
President and CEO
