QUEUESOCKET 1.1 RELEASED
10 MARCH 2003 — QueueSocket, the first complete open-source Socket
solution for REALbasic developers, was updated to version 1.1 today from
developer Drew Hamlin of Vizspring Software.
QueueSocket is the first and only open-source solution made available to
REALbasic developers to improve Internet and network communication using
the Socket control. QueueSocket provides a simple introduction program as
well as a complex, fully developed Network Tic-Tac-Toe game with
accompanying source code and internet tracker application.
QueueSocket was created based on the fundamental principal that all data
can fit into a queue data type, which in turn can be converted into a
string and sent across a local network or the Internet.
Version 1.1 adds REALbasic 5.x compatibility and also extends compatibility
back to REALbasic 3.x. Users upgrading to QueueSocket 1.1 from a previous
version should note that the “In” queue has been renamed to “Incoming”
QueueSocket is available for free download and royalty-free use from
(http://www.drewhamlin.com/realbasic/). QueueSocket is distributed under

Source Initiative at (http://www.opensource.org)
