dbQwikSite Updates Released

dbQwikSite has been released. This is a minor update that addresses some timing issues that result in errors being raised unnecessarily. If you have been experiencing error messages lately, an update is recommended.

In other news, we are working hard in version 5 of dbQwikSite. It is shaping up to be an very interesting release. Top on the list of things we are addressing: Vista compatibility, code generation, integration to HTML editors, some nifty reports on your project, and XML project file format. Enhanced layouts, giving you more control over you page appearance, as well as supporting layouts on data entry pages. As usual we have more ideas than we have time so, no promises just hints of what you can expect.

dbQwikEdit is also active with lots of tweaks. Some bug fixes and a lot of performance enhancements. We should have a new release out next week.

dbQwikSync is now active with the product design team. This little data moving program is about to grow up. The product design department are moving beyond data, and eying database schemas. Imagine if you will, connecting to two unlike databases, and pressing a button, all the table structures are synchronized, and the data too. …well that’s the idea anyway! This is still in the Imagineering phase. Stay tuned for updates on what happens to our little data mover.

Blizzard hits Bangkok!

2007 holds great promise, but not without a few bumps along the way. Our web site visitors will know that we hit a small hiccup just coming out of the holiday season, our web hosting provider got hit by a blizzard. Actually they are located in Canada, TheDevShop is in Bangkok. Please forgive the sensationalism in our headline, and the retouched image, but in a sense it is true. It is interesting to see how the internet is indeed a global community, sharing not only information, but weather too!

A number of our web sites were hit, these include a all our product sites, our support site and on-line store web site. These were down was down almost 24 hours on Jan 10th. After digging through the snow drifts, our hosting company was able to reach the servers to get them back on-line. All our web sites are now up and running, our apologies to all who were inconvenienced by this outage. We invite all of you back to our sites to continue your browsing, support and shopping.
