With dozens of new features, 4D v14 enhances development productivity and speed, while further expanding business app deployment possibilities into Web and mobile.

4D has today announced that it is shipping the public release of 4D v14, a new version of its development and database platform - a complete, integrated environment for business applications. With over 10,000 ISVs counting millions of end users around the world, numerous developers and users can start benefiting from 4D’s latest technologies starting today.

“4D V14 is the result of a joint effort with our partners who tested this product over the past year and gave us their valuable feedback,” said Thomas Maul, Vice President of Strategy for the 4D product line. “Now everyone can experience the architectural improvements and truly enhanced productivity of 4D v14. And perhaps more importantly, they can start taking advantage of the power of 4D Mobile.”

“4D Mobile is truly the simplest way to extend existing 4D applications to the Web, smartphones and tablets,” confirmed Laurent Ribardière, founder, president, and CTO of the 4D group. “All it takes is activating one checkbox on 4D Server, and entering one line of JavaScript in Wakanda Enterprise.”

Highlights of the new version:

  • Foundational improvements like structured objects, SQL views, extended multi-lingual functionality, full-time mirroring, selective logging and journaling.
  • 4D Mobile, which is a bundle including Wakanda Enterprise and 4D Connector Pro – free for development, and using 4D Client licenses for deployment.
  • Productivity enhancements including an improved Web Area with debugger, an all-new query editor, a more versatile listbox interface, and the styled text object which allows you to create HTML email, for example.
