REAL SOFTWARE ANNOUNCES FREE UPGRADE PERIOD FOR REALBASIC 3.0
Copies of REALbasic 2 purchased starting November 1, 2000 to include a free
upgrade to REALbasic 3.
November 13, 2000. Austin, TX - REAL Software announced today that any
purchase of a REALbasic 2 occurring on or after November 1, 2000 will be
eligible for a free upgrade when REALbasic 3 ships.
"Because of REALbasic's Mac OS X support and great new features, thousands
are downloading version 3 alphas", said Geoff Perlman, President and CEO of
REAL Software. "Unfortunately, they have been limited to using it as a
"demo" because they are not yet customers. We want them to know they can
purchase REALbasic 2.1.2 now, and use it and the version 3 public alphas
and betas and get a free upgrade when it's released."
REALbasic is the award-winning, object-oriented visual BASIC development
environment for the Mac. People who have never programmed before who just
need to solve a problem, experienced programmers who need to enhance their
productivity, and everyone in between, will benefit from using REALbasic.
"I've been using REALbasic 3 since the first public alphas. It sports great
new features, while still maintaining a easy-to-use, intuitive interface
that makes programming with REALbasic easier than ever before", said Paul
Scandariato, Aladdin IntelliNews developer, and CTO of Intelli Innovations,
Inc. "I would never go back to using version 2."
REALbasic 3 builds on the strong foundation of REALbasic 2, adding numerous
new features and enhancements. Chief among these is powerful support of
Apple's forthcoming operating system, Mac OS X, including access to the Mac
OS X UNIX "Shell". REALbasic 3 runs natively on Mac OS and Mac OS X. It
