What's New in PowerBatch 3.0 ?


***New PowerBuilder versions support***
PowerBatch introduces support for PowerBuilder 10
and PocketBuilder 1.5/2.0.

PowerBuilder 10 is Unicode enabled and PowerBatch
provides tools for migration to/from other non-Unicode
versions of PowerBuilder.

When used with PocketBuilder, PowerBatch can build
your application for any PocketPC platform your
PocketBuilder version supports.

***Automation support***
PowerBatch introduces support for PBL optimization.
Optimization is required when your libraries become
fragmented with time and therefore become larger and slower.
Automated daily or monthly optimization can avoid such problems.

PowerBatch now can manage your executable version
resources automatically. You can specify an INI file
for storing current version and PowerBatch
will increment it before every build and write this
version to your EXE.

***XP style controls support***
As of version 9, PowerBuilder supports new (XP) visual
style controls in your application. Now you can specify
a PowerBatch option to use XP style controls.


Thank you for using PowerBatch!
With best regards,
