ACI US Opens the Door to Developers for Under $100

ACI US, Inc., publishers of the 4th Dimension (4D) RAD/RDBMS Environment,
announced today that it is making the standard edition of its flagship
product, 4th Dimension Version 6.5 available for $99 USD. This limited time
offer for new customers residing in the U.S. and Latin America allows
developers the opportunity to purchase the advanced development technology
of 4th Dimension for less than $100.

“Over the last few weeks we have been receiving so much interest from
frustrated small developers,” states Brendan Coveney, President, ACI US.
“We are making this offer available to show the small developer community
that ACI US values this market segment and wishes to provide these
developers with a new home where they are appreciated and valued.”

4D offers developers a powerful, multi-threaded, rapid, web application
development environment. Projects developed with 4D can be migrated to a
Client-Server architecture simply by opening them with 4D Server. Web
browsers can simultaneously connect to the database engine, locking records
and performing transactions like other LAN-based 4D Clients.
