Smart Business App Development

With a robust foundation, increased developer and end-user productivity, security and mobility 4D v15 is the culmination of over 30 years of evolution and expertise in building data-driven apps for business.

R-release: Stable, new features continuously delivered

With the R-release continous delivery schedule, you'll regularly get new, production-ready features with new versions at shorter intervals, assuring higher quality and stability from the get-go – and thus a smoother upgrade every time. At no additional cost, Maintenance subscribers and 4D Partners can take full advantage of Release-R versions, without having to wait every 18-24 months for a major release. 

 

Frequently Asked Questions about R-releases

How are new features developed in R-releases?

Each new feature is developed exclusively in the main development branch. Each feature is developed in a way that allows us to deactivate it. Then, for each feature, we perform automated and/or manual testing according to the feature type. (We give priority to automated testing, which can be re-performed anytime.)
