REALbasic 2009 Release 2 Available Now!

REALbasic 2009 Release 2 is now shipping. In addition to more than 70 improvements and 18 new features, including COM automation support for Windows and support for MySQL, this release also introduces the new edition of REALbasic, REAL Studio.

COM Automation Support: Applications can take control of any other Windows application that supports COM automation.

"I really look forward to being able to use COM on Windows, since this will make my programming work a lot easier," commented Dirk Cleenwerck, a REALbasic user. "Because of the features REAL Software adds, I am able to develop much faster in REALbasic than any other programming language."

MySQL Support: The Community Edition (free) of MySQL is now officially supported.

REAL Studio Edition: To recap, REAL Studio includes:
- A license key that can be installed on any number of computers or operating systems for easier development and testing.
- The code profiler for optimizing code performance.
- IDE Scripting for build automation.
- A REAL Server unlimited connections license.
- Priority technical support.

I don't see the new MySQL plugin in the Mac 2009r2 download. Where is it located?

REAL Software said...

It's a separate download located in the Additional Utilities section on the downloads page: :http://realsoftware.com/download/

I can see the download for the Community edition plugin there, but what about the Enterprise version?

Also curious why MySQL is a separate download while the other DBs are included in the main download, but that doesn't matter too much.

Thanks for your help.

There is a blog post a few posts down about why the MySQL Enterprise Server plugin is not in this release. We will be releasing the Enterprise plugin separately very soon.

Starting with R3 we will include the MySQL plugins in the main product download.

There current doesn't seem to be any documentation or examples regarding COM, or am I missing something? I would love to try this out.

About REAL Studio functionnalities, the post says:

- IDE Scripting for build automation.

Does it mean that IDE Scripting other than build automation works in REALbasic Pro?

REAL Software said...

IDE Scripting is no longer a feature of Pro.

i downloaded 2009 r2demo, i am trying this out as i plan on programming for the iphone. so learning objective-c also. making the program with realbasic first will give me a good prototype.

Having problems right now. Trying to create databases when the program crashes. redownloaded entire r2 but still crashes. help requested

I believe there is a known bug in the database editor. It's fixed for R3. If you purchase R2 (the current release) you can download R1 and use the database editor there.

i am making up my mind about purchasing the product. are you saying that i have to purchase the program before i can get the fix?

70 improvements and 18 new features. Where is the link to show what has changed? Does COM support count as 1 feature or 18?

You can get to the release notes from the product download page and they are also included in the product download itself. Here is a direct link: http://realsoftware.cachefly.net/REALbasic2009r2/ReleaseNotes.pdf
