Progress Software Inc has released version 6 of its fourth-generation language and relational database management system in the UK. The new edition incorporates two-phase commit architecture, supports integration with multiple – up to 240 copies of Oracle, DEC Rdb and RMS, and its own databases, as well as X Window, Presentation Manager, Motif, Open Look, Open Desktop and DEC Windows interfaces. Privately-owned Progress it has UK offices in Basingstoke and Sheffield – claims 40,000 licensees of its technology worldwide, 2,000 of them in the UK, and says discussions are currently underway with Sybase about the possibility of supporting the Sybase relational database under Progress. Development of an IBM AS/400 version of Progress is now well underway – though the company is still awaiting a decent C compiler for the machine – a release date is scheduled for spring next year. Progress version 7 is expected to encompass enhanced support for graphics toolkits.
