Highlight Features in this Release
If you are familiar with previous versions of dbQwikSite - Here's a list of just the NEW features:
Changes to Editions
In version 5.2 we have created 2 new editions as well as re-aligned the editions for greater interoperability, All editions share the same IDE, or interface. The page design experience is the same in all edition, the differences in editions have been moved to the code generation functionality.
Personal Edition (PE)
Personal Edition can do more than before, you can view all page types and create multiple group projects limited to a total of 25 pages. PE is a single scripting language edition you can activate (PHP, ASP, or ASP.net) via the web, no personal information is required for the activation process, however you can optionally register for support if you wish. PE adds "branding" banners to your pages at is has in the past. The code generation speed in PE is limited.
Publisher is a "display" edition. This means it will create display and search pages, but no data management pages or on-line forms. If you only need to display your data online publisher offers a cost effective solution. Publisher is a single language edition and you must select the scripting language at time of purchase. Publisher is limited to 50 pages per project.
Express is a "lite" version of PRO. It features all the functionality of PRO, except that it is limited to a single scripting language and 100 pages per project.
Pro remains our powerhouse edition with all features except the e-commerce extensions. Pro generates all script languages and has no page limits.
