New USB Floppy Enabler Available Free from PACE Web Site

PACE Anti-Piracy Inc., a leader in the development of anti-piracy systems for the Macintosh, today released an innovative solution for software developers whose customers use Apple Computer's new iMac and G3 floppyless computer systems. PACE's USB Floppy Enabler is a driver that emulates the floppy drive interface, making supported third-party external USB floppy drives work with floppy-based software products.

PACE developed the USB Floppy Enabler in response to the needs of customers using its InterLok anti-piracy products, a fifth generation tool set for protecting, distributing and selling software. The USB Floppy Enabler currently supports Imation's SuperDisk and Newer Technology's uDrive, two of the leading external USB floppy systems. PACE is working with several other major USB floppy drive manufacturers to ensure universal compatibility.

FileMaker Pro Developer Edition Chosen Best Application Development Program by Software & Information Industry Association

FileMaker Pro 4.0 Developer Edition, the essential database development tool kit for corporate and commercial developers, was voted Best Application Development Program by the Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA) during the association's 14th annual Codie Awards here last night.

In winning the prestigious Codie Award for Best Application Development Program, FileMaker Pro 4.0 Developer Edition bested IBM's Visual Age for Java V2.0, RoboHELP Office 7.0 from Blue Sky Software, Software Engineering Risk Management: Finding Your Path Through the Jungle from LearnerFirst (in partnership with IEEE Computer Society), and Aion 8.0 from PLATINUM Technology.

FileMaker Pro 4.0 Developer Edition, estimated retail price $499 (in the U.S.), gives developers a wide array of 32-bit based applications and tools for compiling, debugging, developing, deploying and managing FileMaker Pro database solutions. It also provides an API (Application Program Interface) that allows developers to write External Functions for FileMaker Pro databases, a capability that will greatly expand the core functionality found in the stand-alone version of FileMaker Pro 4.0. And, with the addition of Java classes, FileMaker Pro Developer Edition also enables access to FileMaker Pro databases over Java-compliant operating systems, such as Unix and Solaris Systems.

CWCVS 2.0

Electric Fish, Inc. announces the release of CWCVS 2.0, a shareware version control plugin for Metrowerks CodeWarrior, which allows you to use the public domain CVS client MacCVS for version control without leaving the CodeWarrior IDE.

CVS is a widely used POSIX-based version control system and CVS clients are available on many platforms, including the Macintosh, making it a reasonable choice for multiple platform development. CWCVS allows Macintosh developers to use CVS with CodeWarrior without arcane command line arguments or scripts.

Version 2.0 features include:

  • Conversion to the latest CodeWarrior API
  • Advanced dialogs for most commands
  • Recursive command versions for Difference, History and Status
  • rtag support in the Label command
  • Default to -kb for adding non-text files
  • Automatic login upon connect
  • Automatic directory creation on Add
  • Watchers support
  • New default options preferences panel
  • Various bug fixes

CWCVS also comes with CWProjector, a Projector version control plugin.
