New team features speed development of .NET web apps!
San Jose, CA – May 28, 2009. Software development tools-maker Iron Speed, Inc. released Iron Speed Designer Version 6.1, the latest version of its popular Web 2.0 application generator. Iron Speed Designer generates rich interactive data entry and reporting applications for .NET. The new source control file detection in Iron Speed Designer dramatically improves team usability of the product. This along with the enhanced page layout editor and support for Microsoft IE8 helps IT departments generate robust, productivity-enhancing applications out-of-the-box.
“We always strive to make Iron Speed Designer easier, friendlier and faster. In Version 6.1, you can generate a working web 2.0 app without hand-coding or any prior knowledge of .NET.” - Alan Fisher, Chairman of Iron Speed, Inc.
New team development features
Iron Speed Designer now detects files that may be under source code control and alerts you to check them out before regenerating your application. Source code control file detection enables multiple team members to collectively work on the same project, thereby accelerating team productivity.
This release also features a new improved code generation algorithm which updates fewer code files and stored procedures. This reduces contention between team members because there are fewer files to check out, compile and check back into your source control system.
“In the past, I wasn’t always 100% sure which files Iron Speed Designer needed to change in the generated app. Version 6.1 eliminates the guess work and does this for me. This functionality will save countless hours and make large projects much easier to manage.” ~ Wayne Hussey, Web Application Engineer II, Providence Health & Services
New generated application features
Iron Speed Designer now supports Microsoft IE8 and 64-bit DLLs. Generated applications have always run on 32-bit machines and now they will run on 64-bit as well. Application users can also view multi-level menus and other controls in their IE8 browser seamlessly.
“Iron Speed, Inc. is very good at keeping up with the industry as it evolves so I am never worried about falling behind. They keep me up to date!” - Mohannad Amr, Software Developer for STME Ltd.
Enhanced page layout editor
Version 6.1 includes a variety of enhancements to the page layout editor, including customizable row style attributes and vertical and horizontal cell alignment. The new right-click menu commands make the page layout editor very intuitive.
“I can quickly accommodate client requests without digging through code or learning the infrastructure of the product – just a simple right-click and Iron Speed Designer displays what I need.” ~ Jay Patel, President of JNovation
