Corel has released version 8.0 of its Paradox database to manufacturing in the UK and expects it to ship shortly.
The release, which runs under Windows 95 and NT, is Corel's first upgrade since it bought the product from Borland about a year ago. It costs #89 per licence, but will now appear in three versions.
The standalone release will be available soon, but an Enterprise Edition, which can run under client/server applications, is scheduled to follow next month.
Paradox 8 Runtime/Java will also ship in October and enable a Paradox-based client package, written in Java, to access the database running on a Windows-based server.
The upgrade enables users to load Paradox 7 tables directly into version 8.0 without losing their data and includes new tools for publishing Paradox data in HTML format to the Web. It also includes a new SQL Query Builder to make it easier for programmers to write SQL queries.
