Huntington Beach, California – December 16, 2007 – ProVUE Development
announces the release of Panorama 5.5, a major revision to our high
performance RAM based database program. Major new features in this
version include:

* Enhanced Live Clairvoyance search wizard with bookmarks and formula
search (allows “spotlight” style instant searching of databases by
field, phonetically, or using a boolean formula).

* Directly exchange data between databases and Microsoft Excel

* Import financial data in the QIF, OFX and QFX formats used by Quicken
and most financial institutions.

* Embed programs using AppleScript, Shell scripts, Perl, Ruby, Python
and PHP directly into Panorama programs. This opens up the huge (and
generally free) code libraries available for these alternate languages
for use within Panorama, including tools for manipulating complex
numbers and matrices, pattern matching, statistical calculations, linear
equations, image manipulation, sql database access, cryptographic
services, xml parsing and various internet protocols including dns, ftp,
smtp, pop3, imap, telnet, ssh, bittorrent, soap and low level tcp/udp

* Easily import images into databases with drag and drop.

* Add zoomable maps to any database with a single line of code.

* Automatically convert forms & reports into PDF format.

* Recent Database wizard helps keep databases organized and instantly

* Multitude of new programming features, including new debugging tools
and user programmable functions.

* All new “Panorama Essentials” book available in PDF format (in
addition to the Panorama Handbook, Tutorial, and other documentation).

Panorama 5.5 is 100% compatible with databases created with all previous
