The sixth Hotfix release for 4D v11 SQL Release 4 is now available.


4D v11 SQL Release 4 (Hotfix 4) addresses several issues in 4D v11 SQL and 4D Server v11 SQL for Mac and Windows.

Seven of 4D's French staff were among the 917 runners from 37 companies participating in the Challenge Contre la Faim (Challenge Against Hunger) footrace on June 19th at La Défense, just outside of Paris. 11,775 kilometers were run, with €176,160 raised for Action Contre la Faim (Action Against Hunger).


The 4D team ran nearly 100 kilometers and contributed over €1,425 to the cause. With an average of 15km run per team member, 4D was among the companies with the largest average distance run per participant!


Congratulations to the 4D team, not only for their valiant results, but for giving their time (and energy!) a worthy charity.


Apple’s latest operating system release, Mac OS X 10.6 “Snow Leopard” is now available.


4D v11 SQL is optimized for the latest hardware and software, including Mac OS X. That means the speed and stability improvements coming in Snow Leopard will soon be felt in 4D. As usual, we’re working very hard with Apple to ensure that the entire 4D v11 SQL product line and the business solutions you create with it will be Snow Leopard certified. This work guarantees you the performance and reliability you demand from the latest systems, and we’ll inform you as soon as the certification is complete.
