Join next year's Charlotte PowerBuilder conference... as a speaker! This not only includes free registration, but it's also a chance to contribute to the PowerBuilder community and share and showcase your achievements!
The year's conference will?focus primarily on technical sessions, and encourages intermediate level sessions.
The following announcement and details come from Matt Balent, the man behind the past years' conferences:
"Now is your chance to 'feed' the PowerBuilder Community! Showcase your achievements in front of your peers - help us grow through exposure to new thinking?and updated ideas.?We are keenly interested in topics which demonstrate how to push the traditional PowerBuilder envelope through integration of third party (or internally developed) APIs and control sets, bringing a more 'modern' look and feel to older applications, and how mobility and the cloud have impacted your systems development.
Sessions need to be educational and technically focused. Intermediate level topics are encouraged.
Session length may be either 60, 90, or 120 minutes. Simpler, single concept type presentations should be limited to sixty minutes;?
in depth technical discussions or detailed analysis/examples would be more appropriate for a 90 or 120 minute slot.
Speakers must be available to present during the entire span of the conference (May 6-8, 2015).?
We offer complimentary registration to approved speakers.
As a whole we can only get stronger by coming together and sharing ideas, know-how, and experiences."

The the Application Profiling feature has been available to native PB applications for many releases - but, only when running the application from the PB IDE or when a developer remembered to code the TraceXxxx () commands in their application. The STD Integrated Framework's (version 2015.4.0.43 and higher) Dynamic Profiling feature though can be activated by the application user, developer, QA or Support specialist at anytime by selecting the keyboard CTRL+SHIFT+F2 keys in succession. The feature is also self contained and ready to use at a moments notice with no programming required by the developer what so ever!?

Customers under maintenance can find them in the EBF 12.6 SP00 PL03 Localized Runtime (build 4035).

Localized runtime files are provided for French, German, Italian, Spanish, Dutch, Danish, Norwegian, and Swedish. ?The localized runtime files let you deploy PowerBuilder applications with standard runtime dialog boxes in the local language. They handle language-specific data when the application runs.

Software Tool & Die has released an updated version of their PB Classic and Appeon Framework!?

Here's a run down of the major highlights:?

1) You can now activate the application Debug/Spy feature in Appeon Web or Appeon Mobile. This feature has been in the framework for quite some time - but, could only be activated via a CTRL+SHIFT+F1 - which of course, is impossible to do from the keyboard in the Web or Mobile devices. Now the Web or Mobile user can use this via the framework`s DEBUG feature and a new icon that will appear.

2) The framework now enables & encapsulates the ability for native applications to load & consume external JAVA Classes from within the PB Application! I have an example application already built and will be uploading this to SourceForge (SF) in the near future. This means that all applications built from the Integrated framework can now fully inter-operate with Java entities directly! Now the future bonus here will be to replicate this feature in the Web Service framework. That will then enable full Java inter-operation in the back end. Not only will that be a bonus for the Web Service developer but ... will then add the ability to consume Java classes in Appeon Web and Appeon Mobile applications as well via WS calls!

3) A new dynamic Application Profiler feature has been added that allows any native PB application to start a "performance trace" anytime when a CTRL+SHIFT+F2 is encountered. While the profiler is available to use from the PB IDE, this enhancement allows you to profile compiled .EXE's now as well. Since the feature is dynamic - even in production - where performance issues often surface versus the development environment, the Application Profiler can be activated to help track down performance issues.

Appeon is planning to do a series of Webcasts to present the vision and roadmap that are planned for PowerBuilder. The first webcast will be hosted at the end of October. It will focus on explaining to the community our vision for PowerBuilder. The second webcast will be presented several weeks later. It will focus on explaining to the community the high-level roadmap planned for PowerBuilder. Early next year will be a final Webcast. This Webcast will explain to the community a detailed roadmap that is planned for PowerBuilder.

Stay tuned for more information...

Software Tool & Die Inc. are please to announce a new example application built from the free open source STD Integrated Foundation Classes that demonstrates dragging files from MS-Windows Explorer into any PowerBuilder application. The Foundation Classes provide an automatic interface to the MS-Windows operating system that enables the Drag Into feature by setting one Window class property!
