REAL Software Ships REALbasic and REAL Studio 2009 Release 3; Adds OpenGL
Surface for 3D Images and Animation
AUSTIN, Texas, USA (July 7, 2009) — REAL Software, creator of REALbasic, a
cross-platform development tool for creating software for Mac, Windows and
Linux, is now shipping REALbasic and REAL Studio 2009 Release 3. This
release boasts more than 100 improvements and 31 new features, including
the addition of OpenGL support for 3D images and animation.
“REALbasic is powerful enough to allow me to develop 2D applications
requiring a complex interface faster than any other compiler,” commented
Stephan Keith, a REALbasic Developer. “With the introduction of OpenGL to
REALbasic, and its extraordinary interface development tools, I should be
able to develop 3D applications 50% to 70% faster over those using
traditional C-programming methods.”
The new OpenGLSurface control does require a knowledge of the OpenGL
language. However, there are some open source projects that are
implementing a RB3D-compatible API on top of the OpenGL for developers who
currently use RB3D.
REALbasic was recently named ‘Best Programming Language’ during =The Code
Project’s First Annual Members Choice Awards.
The complete list of improvements and new features in this release can be
found in the release notes in the product download section,

available in a free 30-day trial edition. REAL Software recently published
an Introduction to REALbasic video on YouTube.com
