Information about 4D and Mountain Lion

After a number of partial communications regarding compatibility between 4D and Mountain Lion since the release of the operating system last week, we are now able to conclude our various tests.

 

The result is very positive, as we have quite nearly made a direct certification of 4D v12.4 and 4D v13.1. In fact, only four issues* have been introduced by Mountain Lion, which is a very low number for an OS update. Two of them are cosmetic and the others are "Crashing Bugs" that occur under very specific conditions: Programmatically changing printers, and printing from the label and the Quick Report editors.

 

Tame Mountain Lion and Gatekeeper

Mountain Lion has just joined the club of the most popular felines in the world, and those of you who won't wait a single minute to install Mac OS X 10.8 will discover rather quickly one of the new features of the operating system called Gatekeeper.

 

Gatekeeper is designed to protect users from malicious downloads and by default blocks opening executables that haven't come from the Mac App Store or that aren't signed with a certificat formally identifying the developer via Apple.

 

After upgrading to Mountain Lion, 4D applications already present on the disk will continue to function as normal, but for any 4D application downloaded there after, whether via online installer or DMG archive, the following alert will appear:

4D Launches Wakanda JavaScript Stack for Web and Mobile Application Development

4D has announced the immediate availability of both the open source and commercial versions of Wakanda, the popular JavaScript development platform.

 

Coming off a successful beta program, Wakanda is today providing developers with a first-ever full-stack JavaScript development platform for Web and mobile business applications. The new Wakanda foundation relies on best-of-breed technology: Web and mobile applications, a development studio, client framework, NoSQL database, server and model-driven architecture. Web applications developed with Wakanda are easily deployed on the cloud. The company is offering an open source community version and a commercial version of Wakanda.
 

Developers now have an entire application stack with JavaScript, and its model-driven architecture (MDA) assures high levels of re-use, helping to decrease maintenance costs. Both the UI and the application data model are built with a powerful WYSIWYG designer in Wakanda Studio, and the Wakanda client framework and GUI designer leverage the full power of HTML5 and CSS3.
