April 23, 2001. Austin, TX – REAL Software, Inc. today shipped REALbasic
3.1, a free update for all REALbasic 3 owners. REALbasic utilizes Mac OS
X’s Aqua interface and operates on earlier versions of Macintosh System
software as well. REALbasic is the powerful, easy-to-use tool for creating
your own software for Macintosh, Mac OS X, and Windows. It is easy enough
for beginners and powerful enough for professionals to use. Having a

“Only four days after installing Mac OS X for the first time I have ELEVEN
of my REALbasic applications all working sweetly under this new OS, two of
which are fairly complex, large programs,” said Peter Job, President of
Black Diamond Products. “I find this truly stunning. Most of the time has
been taken up creating new 128 x 128 icons, rather than coding, too!”

REAL Software created this free update to improve compatibility with Mac OS
X 10.0. All REALbasic users should download this update because while it
adds Mac OS X exclusive features, it also includes further major
improvements to database functionality, and more. Visit the REALbasic
website for details on the dozens of new features and numerous other

Perlman, President and CEO of REAL Software, “this version of REALbasic is
designed to allow anyone to unleash Mac OS X’s power. With the successful
delivery of the Mac OS X to the public, there’s a huge opportunity for
developers to take advantage of the demand for native applications.”
